‘Torah Rabbas’, is the first all English collection of the traditional commentaries which are refered to as midrashim, of first five books of the Bible, the Torah. Midrashim reflect ways of interpreting biblical stories which goes beyond simple distillation of religious, legal or moral teachings. They fill in many gaps left in the biblical narrative regarding events and personalities that are only hinted at in the Torah. The Rabbahs were at first preserved only orally; but their writing down commenced in the 2nd century, and they now exist in the shape chiefly of exegetical or homiletical commentaries on the Torah. Midrashic literature is worthwhile reading not only for its insights into Judaism and the history of Jewish thought, but also for the more incidental data it provides to historians, philologists, philosophers, and scholars of either historical-critical Bible study or comparative religion.
