By Jacob Neusner / Wipf & Stock / 2007
In part three of a six part series, Jacob Neusner continues his discussion on the Mishnaic law of Holy Things, which concern matters pertaining to the Temple and its cult. Here, Neusner offers a translation and explanation of the Mishnah-tractates Hullin and Bekhorot. Hullin deals with the preparation and use of meat, while Bekhorot focuses on three kinds of firstborn: man, the clean beast (the flock or herd deemed holy to be given to the priest), and the unclean beast (the donkey).
