Description

The purpose of this study is to identify the propositions of the principal Midrash-compilations of formative Judaism. Continuing with the theme of volume Seven, devoted to Sifra, Jacob Neusner proceeds to Sifre to Numbers and Sifre to Deuteronomy. It is, further, to place these propositions, where established, into a relationship with those that characterize the canon as a whole. This volume presents both what is in common to the animating theology of Rabbinic Judaism in all its documentary components and what is unique to Sifre to Numbers and Sifre to Deuteronomy, respectively.
