      Mishnah The Mishnah ("a teaching that is repeated") is organized as a law book, and consists of legal rulings and teachings by rabbis of the first through third centuries CE. It was codified by Rabbi Judah Ha-Nasi around CE and divided into "six orders," or shisha sedarim in Hebrew (the Talmud is known colloquially as "shas" for short. The Mishnah, in Judaism, was a codified collection of Oral Law—legal interpretations of portions of the Biblical books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy and other legal material. Together with the Gemara, or Amoraic commentary on the Mishnah, it comprises the Talmud.

    The Economics of the Mishnah is the first book to examine the place of economic theory generally in the Judaic system of the Mishnah. Jacob Neusner begins by surveying previous work on economics and Judaism, the best known being Werner Sombart’s The Jews and Modern Capitalism. The mistaken notion that Jews have had a common economic history. Commentary on the Mishnah Maimonides composed his Mishnah commentary between the ages of twenty-three and thirty, between the years and The original title of the commentary was "the Book of the Lamp" "Kitab al-Siraj" in Arabic, occasionally designated as "Sefer Ha-Ma'or" in Hebrew.

    The Mishnah is the written form of the Jewish Oral Law, as preserved by the Rabbis of the first few centuries after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in the first century. It is the sum of four centuries of Jewish religious activity in Palestine. Much of its contents reflect the Jewish religious tradition current at the time of Christ and the early Christian Church.

The authors of the studies on the Mishnah collected in the present volumes represent the best of contemporary scholarship on that document. In the past thirty years, the Mishnah seen as a document on its own terms has taken its place as a principal focus in the academic study. The anthology is a ubiquitous presence in Jewish literature--arguably its oldest literary genre, going back to the Bible itself, and including nearly all the canonical texts of Judaism: the Mishnah, the Talmud, classical midrash, and the prayerbook.

In the Middle Ages, the anthology became the primary medium in Jewish culture for recording stories, poems, and interpretations of classical texts.

Jacob Neusner and other researchers in Judaic studies critically assess the modern history of the study of the Mishnah, beginning with Jacob N. Epstein, early twentieth-century rabbinic scholar, and concluding with more recent contributions from such scholars as Hanokh Albeck, Abraham Goldberg, and Benjamin DeVries.
