This ebook is an workout within the systematic recourse to anachronism as a theological-exegetical mode of apologetics. in particular, Neusner demonstrates the means of the Rabbinic sages to learn rules attested of their personal day as authoritative testaments to — to them — precedent days. hence, Scripture was once learn as necessary testimony to the modern scene.

About a millennium — 750 B.C. E. to 350 C. E. — separates Scripture’s prophets from the later sages of the Mishnah and the Talmud. it really is relatively traditional to acknowledge proof for transformations over a protracted time period. but Judaism sees itself as a continuum and overcomes distinction. The latecomers painting the ancients like themselves. “In our photo, after our likeness” captures the present aspiration. The sages accommodated the later files of their canon by way of discovering the qualities in their personal time within the list of the distant prior. They met the demanding situations to perfection that the sages introduced about.

Of what does the method of harmonization consist? to reply to that query the writer surveys the presentation of the prophets by way of the rabbis, starting with Moses. to beat the space, Rabbinic sages flip Moses right into a sage like themselves. The prophet plays wonders. The sage units forth moderate rulings. the realization expands in this account of concerns to teach the specific resolution that the sages followed for themselves, and that's the chuffed consequence of the study.
