    Halakhah, the Jewish way of life that Paul called "the traditions of my fathers" in Galatians , had been his religion. It was in question in the book of Galatians, not the law of God. It was the Jewish way of life, the Halakhah, with ascetic, demon-driven Gnosticism added to it. This was the yoke of bondage that could not be borne.

Guiding readers across two millennia of richly illuminating perspectives, this book shows how halakhah is not just “law” but Author: Chaim N. Saiman.
