We suggest that you first read “Pirkei Avot” (also known as “Avot,” “Sayings of the Fathers,” and “Ethics of the Fathers”). Of the Mishnah’s sixty-three tractates (books), this tractate is most like the teaching of Jesus. Afterwards, read “Berachot,” the first tractate in the Mishnah, and then read other tractates that interest you.
I have just purchased an English translation of the Mishnah. I would appreciate your advice on how to properly approach my study of it.
