The dual purpose of the revision of this work has been simplification and amplification.
The language has been recast in parts and there have been added sub-titles within each chapter,... More > cross-references and an index. Ideas such as "Religion as law," the Logos of Philo and the development of Messianism have been made as simple as these subjects admit of.
In seeking illustrations to vivify the narrative it is unfortunate that so little is available. Ah! if we had pictures of Hillel, of Akiba the Martyr, of Judah the Saint, of the Jamnia Academy, of the splendor of the Babylonian Exilarch. But this very absence of pictures is in itself a bit of Jewish history.
This new edition contains quotations from the literature of the periods covered, from the Apocrypha, Philo, Josephus and the Mishna. Three chapters have been added, two on "Stories and Sayings of the Sages of the Talmud" and one on "Rabbi Judah and his times."
This has also been introduced in the recently issued "Modern Jewish History."< Less

Different cultures have different beliefs about love and sex. It's pretty crazy. Some cultures forbid gay sex but they redefine it to be a masculine thing they do because they work in the fields... More > away from women.
Most societies push people to family and marriage. Some approve of polygamy. Customs are geared to control people. After all, every man is a deprived slut in the privacy of his mind by nature. They found loads of porn in Osama Bin Laden's bedroom.
Society shapes your sex and love attitudes. I tried to be monogamous but I realized I get a sexual urge several times everyday
I was raised Catholic but then I realized I'm naturally horny all the time. I have to purge that sexual energy. I can't be wasting it on one woman and kids. I'm entitled to the free pursuit of my life.
I live by the nature that God gave me without breaking any laws. There is your individual purity and the customs you are brought up to believe in.< Less
