Reviews - What do customers think about Christianity in Talmud and Midrash?

Exhaustive Source for Possible Talmudic Allusions to Christ  Apr 23, 2005
This book is 100 years old and is still repeatedly cited and referred to by studies involving possible Talmudic references to Christ and/or Christianity.

When the Temple at Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD, the successors of the Pharisees continued in their oral traditions. About the year 200 AD, these traditions - revolving around the interpretation and illustration of the Torah - were collected and written down in the Mishna. Over time, additional traditions, or Gemara, were also preserved. The two main groups of Jews, Palestinian and Babylonian, over the next couple hundred years, collected their Mishnaic and Gemaran traditions along with other authoritative rabbinical sayings into, respectively, the Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmuds. The Babylonian Talmud runs about 30 volumes!

R. Travers Herford had a love of and respect for the Talmud. In his introduction he reminds the reader of this history of the Talmud, the often religiously charged atmosphere in which it was written, and the faith of the Jews who passed it from generation to generation. He reviews that massive work and capably, with commentary, lists possible references to Christ, his disciples, Christianity and Jewish dealings with Christians. In his commentary he notes from which "layer" of the Talmudic tradition the statement is made thereby giving some sort of dating to the statement.

Herford has been criticized for seeing too many references as being related to Christ. Frankly, I see that as a benefit because at least Herford allows you to examine the citation for yourself. I use Herford with other commentaries on the Talmud.
