BHD: Sepphoris Inscriptions Reference Rabbis

From Bible History Daily: Sepphoris Inscriptions Reference Rabbis

The Aramaic inscriptions refer to two rabbis, whose names have not yet been translated, who were buried in the cemetery. Even though the Kinneret Institute scholars cannot be sure what exact role rabbis played during this period, this mention of rabbis is of particular interest because of Sepphoris’s connection to Rabbi Yehudah Ha-Nasi (Judah the Prince).
