Item description for Judaism When Christianity Began: A Survey of Belief and Practice by Jacob Neusner...

A systematic, holistic introduction to rabbinic Judaism. Offering an illuminating look at beliefs, ritual, symbols, and theology, Neusner's discussion of revelation and Scripture, the doctrine of God, definition of the holy, chain of tradition embodied in the written and oral Torah, sacred space, and other topics makes first-century Judaism accessible to both scholars and general readers.

Publishers Description

In this book, Jacob Neusner gives an introductory, systematic, and holistic account of the theology and practice of Rabbinic Judaism, which emerged, along with Christianity, from antiquity and formed the classical statement of Judaism to the present day. He offers a description of beliefs and practices, theology as expressed in mythic narratives, and norms of ritual and symbolic behavior. Neusner also discusses: revelation and scripture, the doctrine of God, the definition of the holy, the chain of tradition embodied in the story of the written and oral Torah, the intervention of God in history through miracles, sacred space, atonement and repentance, death and afterlife, and art and symbol in Judaism.

Reviews - What do customers think about Judaism When Christianity Began: A Survey of Belief and Practice?

Studies in Judaism.  Jan 3, 2006
Neusner in this book discuss about Judaism and not about beginning of Christianity. He examine relations in Judaism between written Torah and oral Torah. There are valuable insights where we can see style of Jewish thinking and interpretation of the Holy Scriptures in the first centuries A.D.
I expected to read here more deeper survey because title of this book demands that, but for introduction it is sufficient.
