Product Description

This book offers an introduction to the earliest rabbinic movement near and soon after its initial foundation in the decades leading up to and following the third century CE. The volume focuses on what members of the early rabbinic movement were exploring with an examination of two main questions. What were the shared social profiles of the members, and what antecedents did the nascent rabbinic movement use to forge their collective identity? The presentation of the book is clear, easy to follow, and open to specialists and non-specialists alike.
