    Reviewed in the Critical Review of Books in Religion, vol. 5, , pp. Classical rabbinic midrash is a complex and diverse sort of writing compiled and written over a period that spans several centuries and fills many discrete volumes.   1. Midrashic Form. The basic literary form of midrash is BIBLICAL LEMMA [i.e. the biblical text – my note] + lemma may come from a continuous section of Scripture, such as the book of Genesis (cf Bere’shit Rabbah), or it may be from a catena of Scriptural passages, such as the festival lectionary (cf. Pesikta deRav Kahana).

    Midrash represents an intellectual sifting of a text of Scripture to fully understand its significance and application. As opposed to simple, literal readings, it seeks out new, hitherto neglected layers of meaning. Sasso winsomely explores this process, translating and interpreting 20 essential texts. pages, softcover. Paraclete. Midrash: Reading the Bible with Question Marks. Read this book on Questia.

    MIDRASHIC LITERATURE The midrashic method of exegesis presupposes a definitive and accepted scriptural text. In this way midrash differs essentially from the expansions and glosses that, in the course of their long period of formation, filled out the ancient books and occasionally gave them a new relevance for later times. Source for information on Midrashic Literature: New Catholic. In this book, Jacob Neusner conducts a debate with James Kugel about the definition and character of midrash, a particular literary genre within Judaism. The issues of the debate transcend the narrow framework of Judaic religious writing, for at the heart of matters is a much-vexed question. It is whether, and to what extent, one should read and interpret a work of literature initially within.

By Rabbi Dr. Azriel Rosenfeld “Midrash” is a summary of the non-Halachic material in the Talmud, based on the classical compilation “EIN YA’AKOV” The Torah not only contains legal principles (“Halachah”), but also teaches many other things from which we can derive important moral and philosophical lessons; this non-legal aspect of the Torah is called “Aggadah.” The “Written.

Torah (/ ˈ t ɔːr ə, ˈ t oʊ r ə /; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה ‎, "Instruction", "Teaching" or "Law") has a range of meanings.

The process of midrash-making began with the redaction of the Bible, a centuries-long process that began around BCE and ended in the early years of the Common Era.

It can even be argued that the Bible itself is midrash: The latter books of Chronicles explain and interpret parts of the narrative presented in earlier books of Kings. The Talmud (/ ˈ t ɑː l m ʊ d,-m ə d, ˈ t æ l-/; Hebrew: תַּלְמוּד ‎) is the central text of Rabbinic Judaism and the primary source of Jewish religious law and Jewish theology.

Until the advent of modernity, in nearly all Jewish communities, the Talmud was the centerpiece of Jewish cultural life and was foundational to "all Jewish thought and aspirations", serving also as. This is a bold and provocative book. The author seeks to challenge the generally accepted account of the origin of Matthew, and indeed of Mark and Luke as well.

Proceeding by means of intensive readings of passages from the early midrash on Exodus The Mekilta, Boyarin proposes a new theory of midrash that rests in part on an understanding of the heterogeneity of the biblical text and the constraining force of rabbinic ideology on the production of midrash.4/5(4).

In Midrash and Theory, David Stern presents an approach to midrashic literature through the prism of contemporary theory. As midrash--the literature of classical Jewish Scriptural interpretation--has become the focus of new interest in contemporary literary circles, it has been invoked as a precursor of post-structuralist theory and criticism.Midrash often includes stories, called aggadah, some allegorical, some anecdotal, some reaching far beyond what we understand to be possible in our world.
