David Flusser was a remarkably proficient and bright scholar who specialized in Early Christianity and Judaism. In this second, and final volume, of Judiasm of the Second Temple Period, Flusser focuses his efforts on, The Jewish Sages and their Literature and the impact of their thought on 1st Century Judaism and Early Christianity. This book is particularly relevant to those who are engaging in research in the Dead Sea Scrolls and their relationship to the New Testament. Flusser, "original and colorful" was a resource of inestimable value for understanding Second Temple Judaism and his studies will, according to Joseph Fitzmyer, "profit" all who make use of them.
