Praise for Traditions of the Rabbis from the Era of the New Testament

This ambitious project will be welcomed warmly by all who are interested in first-century Judaism, for it meets a long-felt need. How do we isolate and interpret rabbinic writings that come from the first century C.E.? David Instone-Brewer faces this complex question squarely. His comments are scholarly and rigorous yet accessible to a wide range of readers.
