This is my first post here and I am impressed by the helpful community you have here.
My question relates to the method of Scripture interpretation in the first century. Specifically, the 7 rules of Hillel and examples of how these rules were applied in Judaism. Additionally, I would like some good resources on how midrash was used at this time. My searches have not yielded much so far. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
