Christianity Knowledge Base

The Mishnah (Hebrew משנה, "repetition") is the first work of Rabbinic Judaism and a major source of their religious texts, compiled c. 200 AD. It is the first recording of the oral law of the Jewish people, as championed by the Pharisees. By this time, most of Christianity had become a distinct religion from Judaism.

A minority of religious Jews, the Karaite sect, do not accept the Mishnah, nor the later Talmuds.
