Thirteen Midos 05 Interrelationship of Midos

Rabbi Triebitz learns a couple of gemaras with Rishonim demonstrating that the midos are not simply logical constructs but the creation of a new Judaic text.

The difference between Hellenistic thinking and Jewish thinking is that the former is logical, philosophical, whereas the latter is textural.

Rabbi Triebitz shows this by learning Rishonim on Bava Kama 6a, Bava Metziah 3b and Bava Metzia 61a. In addition he brings a Yerushalmi on Berachos, a Ran in Nedarim and many other sources.
