Professor Marsh published this article in the Sept/Oct edition of the Baptist Bulletin.
Since the 1980s, there has been much discussion regarding the value of rabbinic study in connection to New Testament exegesis. It was during this period that Jewish scholar Jacob Neusner (who is credited with publishing well over 900 books) released his seminal series on rabbinic studies. Neusner’s groundbreaking study soon circulated throughout academia, causing exegetes of all stripes to have to wrestle with the question of ancient rabbinism’s validity concerning New Testament study.
