The Babylonian Talmud is the culmination of the oral teachings of the scribes and pharisees that Christ so adamantly rebuked. It is a long collection of books that weren’t put into written form until around the 6th century A.D.
It is composed of the Mishnah and Gemara, the former of which is the rambling of rabbis over the ages, and the latter is more commentary and rambling. In it’s whole, the Talmud is the antithesis of Christianity; It has nothing to do with the Old Testament. The jews pretend to be the Israelites of the Bible but nothing could be further from the truth.
