A Primer for the Evangelical on the Talmud

A complete set of the Talmud Babli

An introduction to Christians about the amazing ancient collection of writings written by Jewish authorities called the Talmud.

The Talmud is a broad collection of Jewish writings that the majority of evangelical Bible students could easily read and understand. It is very close in the thoughts and methods outlined in the New Testament.

Because of this, the Talmud is an invaluable piece of ancient literature for those seeking religious truth.
