This Meet the Rabbis class looked at the Rabbis. We will looked at the towering sages of the early part of the first and second century and their effect on Judaism. Dr Brad Young describes the Rabbis as walking talking books. We will looked at these books and their relation to the Torah and Mitzvah.
Meet the Rabbis Lesson #10
Rabbinic Hermeneutics and the four levels of Interpretation
Tonight’s Torah Focus looked at the Hermeneutic principles for interpreting the Bible. We discussed all of this from the perspective of the four levels of interpretation. We gave time to looking at the way that the Nazarean Codicil interprets the Tanahk.
Tonights class on Meet the Rabbis will looks at the Nazarean Codicl and the Oral Torah. We will tried to explore the idea of why the Rabbis wrote the oral Torah and Why the Nazarean Codicil was written. Do they have anything in common? How does the previous chapter on the Sanhedrin relate to tonights material?
Meet the Rabbis class #3 discusses the nuances of the word Torah. We will be looking at various aspects of the Torah. We examine the core thought and meaning of the Torah and how we should respond to the Torah.
