Traditions of the Rabbis from the Era of the New Testament (TRENT), vol.2 Feasts and Sabbaths: Passover and Atonement

By David Instone -Brewer (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2009) (online-version)

This volume covers the first half of Order Moed, including laws of Sabbath, Community Markers, Passover, the Half Shekel tax and the Day of Atonement. These provide many enlightening insights into NT background, including details of the Sabbath disputes of Jesus, the Passover in the Gospels, Jewish tax and payments to the Temple, the theology of Hebrews and first century Jewish soteriology.

Seems a very important document. Unhappily, when trying to be aware of the development of this work and when puts there the e-mail address, after to click to send always say that can not find the page.
The on-line presentation of the book is really wonderful as the fifty pages per week reading limitation. Each day we are bombard (at least with Jewish material), with lots of published books with deep titles and after the context is poor. Reading we can choose to buy and keep our library out of mess.
A great blog and I will keep it as my advisor.
