Abstract

Sabba de-Mishpatim is a distinct literary unit of Zoharic literature which interprets Exodus, chapters 21-24. The composition tells of a wonderful encounter between Rabbi Hiyyah and Rabbi Yossi, and an eccentric old man (the Sabba), whom they originally mistook for an ignoramus. The exegesis delivered by the Sabba to the friends examines esoteric matters concerning the laws of the spirit and reincarnation, reward and punishment, and principles of exegesis. This section of the Zohar is most famous for the parable of the maiden in the tower. This volume is the first full-length study of Sabba de-Mishpatim, exploring its hermeneutics and the revival of the midrashic form in Zoharic literature. -- Publishers website
