Judaism of the Second Temple Period Volume 2: The Jewish Sages and Their Literature
by David Flusser
Translated by Azzan Yadin
Foreword by David Bivin
Electronic Book: PDF Format, 390 pages
The second volume of Judaism of the Second Temple Period, co-published by Jerusalem Perspective (JP), considers the worldview of the rabbinic sages and introduces readers to prominent Second Temple period personalities such as Hillel, Philo of Alexandria and Josephus. This English edition makes more of Flusser’s insightful work available to a wider audience than ever before.
David Flusser (1917 – 2000) was professor of early Christianity and Judaism of the Second Temple Period at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He was a prolific scholar whose contributions to the study of rabbinic literature are inestimable. Flusser’s best-known book, Jesus, was translated into eleven languages.
Notice to Purchasers
Although the two volumes of Judaism of the Second Temple Period are a valuable resource, it has come to the attention of JP that the English translations are marred by numerous errors and omissions. JP has made an effort to identify and correct these errors in a post entitled “Corrections and Emendations to Flusser’s Judaism of the Second Temple Period.”
