The Babylonian Talmud


The Talmud is included on this website because we feel it is worthwhile to mine it for its wealth of truth. For millennia the Jews have been studying and expounding on the Torah and we feel that this is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to deepen their Bible study. True, there are those who pull difficult passages out of it and use them to promote the belief that Judaism leads to undesirable behavior but the same can be said for the Bible itself; without further study some verses can lead to questionable conclusions. We feel that the Christian community will be helped more than hindered by having some exposure to the Talmud.

We hope this helps you in your study of the Babylonian Talmud.
