This internet edition differs from the original in these ways:

1. I have not reproduced the Greek and Hebrew words. Most of them are translated in the books, but where the meaning is not clear, I have either skipped the sentence or put ellipsis (...) marks in the place of the disputed passage.

2. I have not reproduced any footnotes. I am laboring under the impression that the reader does not have access to a Talmud. For a brief overview of Jewish writings see Outline of Ancient Jewish Theological Literature from Sketches of Jewish Social Life by Alfred Edersheim on this website.

3. All passages of Scripture in bold type are not in the original. I am adding the KJV verses as I find it difficult to follow otherwise.

4. In some instances, I have added links to further clarify an area. These are not in the original and will be placed between brackets in blockquote format.
