We find no tractate devoted to the destruction of the Temple, no complete chapter detailing the events of Bar Kokhba, nor even a sustained celebration of the events of the sages’ own historical life. Episodic snippets such as Yohanan ben Zakkai’s escape from Jerusalem underscore the absence of a narrative tradition in the Mishnah. When things that have happened are mentioned, it is neither to narrate nor to interpret and draw lessons from the event. It is either to illustrate a point of law or to pose a problem of the law – always en passant, never in a pointed way.
