Chapter Summary

This front matter section contains the table of contents and an introduction of the book The New Testament and Rabbinic Literature. The book addresses the methodological issues that are centre-stage in present-day rabbinic scholarship. An important but difficult aspect of the comparison of New Testament and rabbinic studies concerns the identity of the Pharisees. Turning to the actual study of Rabbinics and the New Testament, the question is how to present this. A possible solution seems to be found in the classical genres of rabbinic tradition, midrash, halakhah, and aggadah, which have guided the rabbis in their editorial efforts. While the differences between ancient halakhic systems and traditions must always be kept in mind, it is safe to say that Qumran law in its fragmentary state of preservation is very difficult to understand without expertise in rabbinic halakhah.

Keywords: ancient halakhic systems; New Testament; Pharisees; Qumran law; Rabbinic literature
