Product Description

What do we know about early Judaism? And how do we know it? Using the same scholarly methods usually applied to documents of the early church, Neusner investigates early Jewish literature to produce an astonishingly full portrait of Judaism in its formative years. Since Christianity was developing at the same time, Neusner's outline suggests some intriguing comparisons. 192 pages, paper from Westminster.

Publisher's Description

What do we know about the history, literature, and religion of Judaism in its formative age? How do we know it, and why does it matter? In Studying Classical Judaism, renowned scholar and author Jacob Neusner addresses these and other important questions. Applying many of the same methods Christian scholars use to study Christianity, Neusner outlines what we now know about ancient Judaism. He points out the core-belief of normative Judaism and reveals the methodological underpinnings of the most cogent and up-to-date interpretations of the texts that determined classical Judaism.
