'Jewish law is an extremely complex topic and most NewTestament scholars settle for a few choice quotes to illustrate the point beingmade. In this book, James Crossly begins with Jewish law and shows how anunderstanding of its complexity can greatly illuminate passages from theGospels and Paul. It is indeed a guide for the perplexed and will go straighton to my reading list.' - Professor Steve Moyise, University of Chichester, UK. --,
