Jewish Law from Jesus to the Mishnah
E P Sanders
From The Publisher:
In this volume E. P. Sanders advances his re-examination of the nature of Jewish Law which he began in Paul and Palestinian Judaism. As usual, he is able to shed new light on old questions and demonstrate that many accepted interpretations are misguided.
In the chapter on 'Jesus and the Law' he considers how serious the legal issues discussed between Jesus and his opponents would have been had they been authentic - a comparison which has never before been undertaken.
An Examination of the Pharisaic legal corpus sets the author apart from the conclusions of one of the most prolific writers in this area. Similarly, a concluding section on the 'philosophy' behind the Mishnah distinguishes Professor Sanders' work from other studies.
