David Daube (1909-1999) was known for his unique and sophisticated research on Roman law, biblical law, Jewish law, and medical ethics. In his second set of Gifford Lectures presented in April and May 1964, Daube derives from his complex understanding of biblical texts both ancient and contemporary notions of wisdom, justice, and education. His thinking bridges the gap between humanism and religion, especially with regard to Christianity and Judaism. With his sophisticated understanding of Talmudic law and literature, his thinking revolutionized prevailing perceptions about the New Testament.
