Description

The name Midrash Rabbah describes ten separate Talmudic works. The first of them – Bereshit Rabbah, the exegesis of the first book of the Bible, is the most ancient example of the midrashim:

Bereshit Rabbah is a text from Judaism’s classical period. It is a midrash comprising a collection of ancient rabbinical homiletical interpretations of the Book of Genesis.

It is expository midrash to the first book of the Torah, assigned by tradition to the amora Hoshaiah (or Osha’yah) who flourished in the third century in Israel. The midrash forms an aggadic commentary on Genesis, in keeping with the midrashic exegesis of that age.
