Overview

In part four of Jacob Neusner’s examination of the Mishnaic law of damages, he provides a translation and explanation of the following Mishnah tractates: Shebuot, Eduyot, Abodah Zarah, Abot, and Horayot. Shebuot deals with guilt offerings. Eduyot pertains to decisions made by religious authorities. Abodah Zarah concerns the issue of idolatry. Abot contains no law but is instead a collection of sayings from rabbinic leaders. Horayot deals with collective sin. Neusner examines these tractates chapter by chapter, comparing their themes with those found in other Mishnah tractates and other Scripture passages.
