Overview

Excerpt from The Evangelists and the Mishna: Or Illustrations of the Four Gospels, Drawn From Jewish Traditions

The Mishna is that collection of Jewish Traditions made by Rabbi Judah, surnamed the Holy, in order to preserve them from perishing during the dispersion of his countrymen. "He collected," says Basnage, quoting from Ganz, "all the decrees, the statutes, the words of the Sages; all the ordinances of the Sanhedrin, which had been made under the ministry of the prophets, or by the men of the great synagogue." Various dates are assigned to the completion of this work, from A.D. 141 to A.D. 230. It is this which with the Gemara, or commentaries forming the completion of the work, constitutes the Talmuds, that of Jerusalem having been composed about the year 300, and that of Babylon, usually spokon of as the Talmud, not earlier than the beginning of the sixth century.
