Summary

The Talmud is the main text of Judaism (other than the Old Testament). It contains rabbinical teachings on the Bible and Jewish law, philosophy, history, ethics, customs, and tradition. John Lightfoot began the task of relating the Talmud to the text of the New Testament. He hoped to help modern New Testament readers better understand the Jewish historical and cultural background behind the text. By commenting on the Jewish traits of first century culture, Lightfoot is able to bring new context to readers. Lightfoot passed away before he could finish this monumental task, but he completed large volumes of verse-by-verse commentary on the Gospels. From the Talmud and Hebraica (Hebraica refers to the Hebrew language) is a beneficial source for new perspectives on the New Testament.
