Early Judaism

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the work that has been done on Judaism from 200 BCE to c.500 CE. It determines that the current study of early Judaism focuses more on its explanation and has more awareness of the possible extent of variety. The chapter shows that classical scholars have played a major role in placing the Jewish evidence properly into the context of the Greek and Roman world.
