The product of a collaboration between Hermann Strack and Paul Billerbeck, Kommentar zum Neuen Testament aus Talmud und Midrasch is truly one of a kind. Strack and Billerbeck painstakingly gathered materials from the Talmud and Midrash that help explain the faith, perspectives, and practices of the Jews during the life of Christ and the period of the early church. Going through each New Testament book verse by verse, Strack and Billerbeck reference passages from the Midrash and the Talmud to show not only how they informed the opinions of the experts in the audience, but how centuries of teaching from those sources would have informed the popular understanding of what was being said or done in a particular verse or section.

Though much work has been done on Second-Temple Judaism since Strack and Billerbeck published this work, nothing has come close to replacing it. It is the seminal and standard reference work in this area of research. If you want to learn about the Jewish worldview at the time of Christ, you must have Kommentar zum Neuen Testament aus Talmud und Midrash in your library.

About the Authors

Hermann Strack (1848–1922) was born in Berlin. He studied Talmudic and Rabbinic literature under the Jewish scholar Moritz Steinschneider. Most of Strack’s contemporaries considered him the foremost Christian authority on Talmudic and Rabbinic literature. In 1883, Strack founded the Institutum Judaicm, an organization focused specifically on the conversion of Jews to Christianity. Two years later, he became editor of Nathanael. Zeitschrift für die Arbeit der Evangelischen Kirche an Israel. In 1877, Strack became the assistant professor of Old Testament exegesis and semitic languages at the University of Berlin.

Paul Billerbeck (1853–1932) was born in Bad Schönfliess on April 4, 1853. Before his retirement in 1914, Billerbeck served as a pastor in Zielenzig and Heinerdorf. Billerbeck was also heavily involved in missionary work in Berlin, where he was engaged in the evangelism of Jews living in Germany. Billerbeck was educated at Greifswald and Leipzig.

    Proper context is mandatory for accurately understanding biblical passages. Jesus interacted primarily with other Jews in a Second Temple Period context. He was well acquainted with the customs, traditions, teachings, and extra-biblical literature of that time. This work by Strack and Billerbeck is a wonderful tool for gaining contextual insight into scripture when used properly. I'm looking forward to getting it in English.

    If one is going to use these volumes it is worth taking into consideration the cautions raised by Samuel Sandmel on pages 8-11 of his article... "Parallelomania." JBL 81 (1962): 2-13.
