The Haggadah

What is the Haggadah in Judaism?

The Haggadah included all scriptural interpretation which is non-halakic in character. It was an attempt to develop the meaning of the implication of the law rather than to enlarge upon its explicit statements. The argument of Jesus for the resurrection from Exodus 3:6 follows somewhat the pattern of Haggadic procedure (Matt. 2 2:31-33).
