      Question: "What is the Mishnah? What is a midrash?" Answer: The Mishnah is the oral law in Judaism, as opposed to the written Torah, or the Mosaic Mishnah was collected and committed to writing about AD and forms part of the Talmud.A particular teaching within the Mishnah is called a midrash.   Moses’s descendants are referred to in the first book of Chronicles, one of the more obscure books of the Bible. Chronicles was written in the earliest days of the Second Temple Era (circa to BC), organizing and preserving records of genealogy and history of the royal house of the kingdom of Judah, the descendants of King David.

      Dr. Israel Drazin’s book Unusual Bible Interpretations Five Books of Moses is at once two things that are usually mutually exclusive: it is both scholarly and also very readable. It is scholarly in that Drazin explains the views of many well-known (as well as many not so well-known) biblical commentators as well as his own insightful ideas/5(22). Miriam (מִרְיָם Mir-yām) was described in the Hebrew Bible as the daughter of Amram and Jochebed, and the older sister of Moses and was a prophetess and first appears in the Book of Exodus.. The Torah refers to her as "Miriam the Prophetess" and the Talmud names her as one of the seven major female prophets of Israel. Scripture describes her alongside of Moses and Aaron as.

    Moses never outlawed drinking the milk of the mother goat, while eating the kid goat that had been roasted in fire.

Who is the greatest leader in the Bible. Ask that question of random people on the street and the quick answer is likely to be: “Moses.” For in truth, far more people are likely to have seen Disney’s “Prince of Egypt” than to have perused the Bible for exemplars of leadership.

But what about the awkward story of Moses killing the Egyptian (Exodus ). Question: "What is the Song of Moses (Deuteronomy –43)?" Answer: There are at least three songs that Moses wrote.

One was sung after the crossing of the Red Sea (Exodus 15), one is recorded in Ps and the other was written in the last days of Moses’ life, in Deuteronomy Two songs are attributed to Moses in the OT: The first is a song of victory recorded in Exodus * The second is a song of warning recorded in Deuteronomy We observe in Exodus that this song is sung by Moses and the children of Israel (presumably the males) until Miriam and the women answer them as recorded in Exodus (3) And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the LambThey join their voices to the music of their harps.

The Song of Moses sung by Mirian in the Exodus narrative is sung again in Revelation, where the destruction of Pharaoh and his army are seen as a type of the judgment of Satan and his demon cohorts. Just as Joseph's bones were brought out of Egypt, so the dead in Christ will rise first when we come out of the world at Jesus' return.

1 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and they spoke, but the midrashic interpretation is [as follows]: Our Rabbis of blessed memory stated: From here is an allusion from the Torah to the resurrection of the dead (Sanh.

Together with her brothers, Moses and Aaron, Miriam is described in the A type of non-halakhic literary activitiy of the Rabbis for interpreting non-legal material according to special principles of interpretation (hermeneutical rules). midrash as part of a family triumvirate of leaders.
