Talmud

 

 

 

Rabbinic Writings include the Talmud (c. AD 200 AD 500) which is a record of rabbinic discussions on Jewish law, Jewish ethics, customs, legends and stories. Portions of the Talmud are comprised of the traditions of the elders mentioned in Matthew 15:2-6, Mark 7:3-13, Galatians 1:14. The Talmud contains references to the Trinity, the Messiah, miraculous healings, the apocalypse and baptism.

Rabbinic Writings also include Targums. Targums are Aramaic translations of the Old Testament that contain information not found in the Hebrew Old Testament. The names of Jannes and Jambres mentioned in 2Timothy 3:8 are contained in the Targum Jonathan version of Exodus.
