In the following article an account is given of Christianity as a religion, describing its origin, its relation to other religionsits essential nature and chief characteristics, but not dealing with its doctrines in detail nor its history as a visible organization. These and other aspects of this great subject will receive treatment under separate titles.
Baraita In addition to the Mishnah, other tannaitic teachings were current at about the same time or shortly thereafter. The Gemara frequently refers to these tannaitic statements in order to compare them to those contained in the Mishnah and to support or refute the propositions What have i learned and imbibed the Amoraim.
All such non-Mishnaic tannaitic sources are termed baraitot lit. The baraitot cited in the Gemara are often quotations from the Tosefta a tannaitic compendium of halakha parallel to the Mishnah and the Midrash halakha specifically Mekhilta, Sifra and Sifre.
Some baraitot, however, are known only through traditions cited in the Gemara, and are not part of any other collection.
Gemara In the three centuries following the redaction of the Mishnah, rabbis in Israel and Babylonia analyzed, debated, and discussed that work. The Gemara mainly focuses on elucidating and elaborating the opinions of the Tannaim. The rabbis of the Gemara are known as Amoraim sing.
The starting point for the analysis is usually a legal statement found in a Mishnah. The statement is then analyzed and compared with other statements used in different approaches to Biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism or - simpler - interpretation of text in Torah study exchanges between two frequently anonymous and sometimes metaphorical disputants, termed the makshan questioner and tartzan answerer.
Another important function of Gemara is to identify the correct Biblical basis for a given law presented in the Mishnah and the logical process connecting one with the other: Traditionally Talmudic statements are classified into two broad categories, halakhic and aggadic statements.
Halakhic statements directly relate to questions of Jewish law and practice halakha. Aggadic statements are not legally related, but rather are exegetical, homiletical, ethical, or historical in nature.
Minor tractate In addition to the six Orders, the Talmud contains a series of short treatises of a later date, usually printed at the end of Seder Nezikin. These are not divided into Mishnah and Gemara. Bavli and Yerushalmi[ edit ] The process of "Gemara" proceeded in what were then the two major centers of Jewish scholarship, Galilee and Babylonia.
Correspondingly, two bodies of analysis developed, and two works of Talmud were created. The older compilation is called the Jerusalem Talmud or the Talmud Yerushalmi. It was compiled in the 4th century in Galilee. The Babylonian Talmud was compiled about the yearalthough it continued to be edited later.
The word "Talmud", when used without qualification, usually refers to the Babylonian Talmud. While the editors of Jerusalem Talmud and Babylonian Talmud each mention the other community, most scholars believe these documents were written independently; Louis Jacobs writes, "If the editors of either had had access to an actual text of the other, it is inconceivable that they would not have mentioned this.
Here the argument from silence is very convincing. Jerusalem Talmud A page of a medieval Jerusalem Talmud manuscript, from the Cairo Geniza The Jerusalem Talmud, also known as the Palestinian Talmud, or Talmuda de-Eretz Yisrael Talmud of the Land of Israelwas one of the two compilations of Jewish religious teachings and commentary that was transmitted orally for centuries prior to its compilation by Jewish scholars in the Land of Israel.
It is written largely in Jewish Palestinian Aramaica Western Aramaic language that differs from its Babylonian counterpart. Because of their location, the sages of these Academies devoted considerable attention to analysis of the agricultural laws of the Land of Israel.
It is traditionally known as the Talmud Yerushalmi "Jerusalem Talmud"but the name is a misnomer, as it was not prepared in Jerusalem. It has more accurately been called "The Talmud of the Land of Israel". By this time Christianity had become the state religion of the Roman Empire and Jerusalem the holy city of Christendom.
InConstantine the Greatthe first Christian emperor, said "let us then have nothing in common with the detestable Jewish crowd. The compilers of the Jerusalem Talmud consequently lacked the time to produce a work of the quality they had intended.
The text is evidently incomplete and is not easy to follow.
The apparent cessation of work on the Jerusalem Talmud in the 5th century has been associated with the decision of Theodosius II in to suppress the Patriarchate and put an end to the practice of semikhahformal scholarly ordination.Wisdom I have learned from an older adult First of all I have to say that I’ve put quiet a bit of thought into who I’ve received the most words of wisdom from and I have chosen my adopted mother.
