In part five of this series, Jacob Neusner continues to discuss the Mishnaic law of Holy Things, which concern matters pertaining to the Temple and its cult. In this volume, Neusner translates and explains five tractates in the Mishnah-Tosefta: Keritot, Meilah, Tamid, Middot, and Qinnim. The Keritot centers on the catalogue of offerings required for transgressions and penalties. The Meilah deals with the topic of sacrilege. The Tamid is a narrative on how the priest provides the daily-burnt offering. The Middot presents the measurements of the Mishnah’s Temple. The Qinnim concerns settling affairs regarding the sacrifice of birds.
