TTPT 712 - Ethics of the Fathers

A study of the tractate of the Mishnah called Pirke Avot, the Ethics of the Fathers, with a view toward comparing these rabbinic teachings with the wisdom literature of the Hebrew Scriptures, the revelation of the New Testament, and the issues of ethics in contemporary society. Attention will be given to the interrelatedness of this Jewish tradition with biblical ethics incumbent upon Messianic Jewish congregations.
