Quick Reference

A city c.13 miles south of Joppa. After the fall of Jerusalem (ad 70), an assembly of Jewish religious teachers was established there. The subjects discussed by the rabbis apparently included the status of certain biblical Books, but there is no evidence to support the suggestion that a particular synod, held here c.100, settled the limits of the OT canon.

Subjects: Biblical Studies.
