Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of sources relevant to the book The Literature of the Sages. The book highlights that the use of rabbinic literature for the understanding of the New Testament was not without its problems, especially as strides were made in the methodologies associated with rabbinic literature as well as with the New Testament. It became clear that historical traditions in the literature of the sages could not be accepted at face value and that attestations were problematic. Relevant information or material for comparison with the New Testament might be found both in halakhic literature as well as in midrash and aggada.

Keywords: halakhic literature; New Testament; rabbinic literature
