Pictured below is a statue of the Jewish rabbi Hillel the Great teaching a boy standing on one foot. (Don’t know why the one foot.) He died 10-15 years after the birth of Jesus.
Hillel was liberal and lenient in his interpretation of the oral law; and his followers, who were prominent after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE, were distinguished from the more rigorous school of Shammai, a contemporary. Commentators on the Mark scripture for October 7, 2018 point to this contrast. Read here: The Question About Divorce
Hillel is famous for the dictum: ‘What you hate, do not do to your fellow; that is the whole Torah, while all the rest is commentary.’
