The Traditions of the Rabbis from the Era of the New Testament collection provides significant insights into Jewish thought and practice prior to the destruction of the Second Temple in AD 70. These volumes present rabbinic sources relating to prayer, agriculture, feasts, and Sabbaths. Author David Instone-Brewer thoroughly discusses the meaning and importance of each rabbinic tradition for Second Temple Judaism, and also analyzes their presence in the New Testament writings. Students of Judaism and Christianity, as well as anyone interested in Old Testament scholarship, will find this collection a useful reference work.

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.
