Specifications

The only English-language translation of the Tosefta ( €œsupplement €), which contains explanations and discussion not included in the Mishnah and is organized according to the same six divisions. Materials in the Tosefta are attributed to rabbinic authorities in the first and second centuries c.e., the same ones cited in the Mishnah, and as such the Tosefta is crucial to the study of formative rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity. This two-volume edition, by renowned rabbinic scholar Jacob Neusner, contains the complete text of the original six-volume set. The following features enhance the usefulness of this new edition: the text is continuously paginated, with a new preface, a single general index, and a full index of biblical and talmudic references.

"The Tosefta has been one of the most neglected of the major texts of rabbinic Judaism. Jacob Neusner has devoted considerable attention to this text and has produced the only modern language complete translation. Yet, his six-volume work (New York: Ktav, 1977-1986) remained relatively inaccessible to most students and scholars. It is an event of significance to have now an accessible, two-volume edition of Neusner's English translation with his new introduction. This should enhance both rabbinic studies and the shared concern among Jewish and Christian scholars and students for better understanding ancient Judaism."
David M. Scholer, Professor of New Testament and Associate Dean, Center for Advanced Theological Studies, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary
