This short study examines the use of the exegetical middah דבר הלמד מענינו in rabbinic literature and notes that the “context” appealed to is literary context: that texts are to be interpreted in the light of other texts immediately before or after them within the scriptural book from which they are read. This observation is intended to clarify the use of the rule for scholars working on the use of Scripture in the New Testament who have often assumed that the “context” it refers to is historical context: that a text is to be interpreted on the basis of its assumed time of origin, often in relation to the time of origin of another text with which they are compared.
