If you don't have much experience with rabbinic literature, I'm not sure I would recommend diving into texts such as the Mishnah, Bavli (Babylonian Talmud), or Yerushalmi (Jerusalem Talmud) without some preliminary study. The formatting, style, and exegesis are different than most early Christian texts. However, the Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism includes a number of introductory essays, as well as entries on all the key terms. (I don't own the Accordance module, but I do own the print version, and I've been very pleased with it.)
In terms of print resources, the standard introduction to rabbinic literature is Strack and Stemberger's Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash (which was last revised in 1996). If you're interested in early Jewish interpretations of the biblical text, the works of James Kugel (e.g., The Bible as It Was) or Louis Ginzberg (e.g., The Legends of the Jews, a version of which is now in the public domain and widely available on the web) are a good place to start.
Overall, once you have a better feel for the historical and literary context of rabbinic literature, I think it's a much more rewarding read.
