Rabbi and Rabbinism,
Rabbi means “my teacher” (Matt. 23:8); Rabboni means
the same, but
is a more honorable
title. None of the prophets or doctors of
the law received this
title until the time of Hillel and
Shammai, leaders of the
two rival branches of rabbinical teaching.
Hilel b. Babylon 1100 B.C.—d. at the extreme age of 120.
Allowing for variations in chronological reckoning, he might
with bare possibility have been among the doctors who
disputed with the child Jesus (Luke 2:41-47). Hillel was
father to Simeon, with whom some identify Simeon of Luke
2:25. Gamaliel (Acts 5:34) was Simeon’s son, and one of
seven men only who bore the higher title, Rabban. The
highest title among the Babylonian Jews was Rab or Rav. Abba
Arika of Sura, highest of all, was known simply as Rab or
Rav (see Rav). As he was head of rabbinism at Babylon, so
was Rabbi Jehudah the Holy of Palestine. Some
of these rabbis (or
rabbins, as the word is often written), led holy
lives, and their teaching was exalted; others did not, and
their teaching was corrupted—especially as regards
women. Rabbi Jehudah
the Holy, publisher of the Mishna (see Talmud), was almost
deified by his followers. Rabbis quoted or referred
to—8, 16, 18, 24, 42, 146, 151, 202, 208, 291, 300, 335,

Talmud and Talmudic. The Talmud is the
body of Jewish civil and canonical law. It is composed of
two parts, the Mishna and the Gemara, that is, Comments on
the Mishna. The comments of the Babylonian Rabbis, added to
the Mishna together make the Babylonian Talmud; the Mishna
with the comments of Palestinian Rabbis make the Jerusalem
Talmud. The latter is a much larger work than the Bible, and
The Babylonia Talmud is many times larger than the Jerusalem
Talmud. The Talmud has more authority than the Bible to the
orthodox Jew, yet as Dr. Edersheim truly says: “It may be
fearlessly asserted that, as regards their substance and
spirit, there is not a difference, but a total divergence of
fundamental principles between Rabbinism and the N. T., so
that comparison between them is impossible;” and Dr. Philip
Schaff has defined the Talmud as “the O.T. turned against
the N.T.” To this source is to be traced the perversions of
the sense of other Scripture passages besides Gen. 3:16,
(see Rabbi). Cited: 8, 16, 18, 87, 87n, 89, 102, 106, 129,

Targums were originally oral; the
earliest one, Onkelos on the Pentateuch, began to be
committed to writing in the 2nd century. This is
often called the Chaldee Paraphrase, and is the best
of the targums. Ben Uzziel comprises Joshua, Judges,
Samuel, Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the Minor
Prophets; published in the 4th century. These two
belong to Babylon. Then, there is a Jerusalem targum
on the Pentateuch, and Palestinian targums of very uncertain
dates attributed to Joseph the Blind on Psalms,
Proverbs, Job, Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Ruth, Esther,
Chronicles, Canticles, Lamentations and Ecclesiastes—books
which follow this order in the Hebrew Bible, 134, 139, 140,
