Excerpt from Jerusalem Temple Festivities The following pages give a detailed account of two of the festivities celebrated in the Temple at Jerusalem, viz., (I) that connected with the presentation of the firstfruits, Bikkurim; (2) that celebrated in connexion with the water libations during the week of Tabernacles, the Water Feast. They thus do not pretend to do more than lift a corner of the curtain that hangs before this fruitful field of research. It is hoped that these pages may serve as a running commentary of philological and archaeological as well as historical interest on the passages treated. The clearness of definition herein sought after, for terms found obscure, will perhaps throw light on the dark places of neighbouring paths. The reconstruction here given is based on traditions preserved in the Mishna, Tosefta (ed. Zuckermandel), the Halachic Midrashim, viz., Sifre (ed. Friedmann), Mekilta (ed. Friedmann), Sifre (ed. Weiss). About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
