Rabbinic literature left no personal writings by rabbis in their own names, and certainly no autobiography or personal reflection.' What is perhaps even more significant is the lack of raw material.
Rabbinic literature never systematically told the life of any of its heroes, nor did it preserve the materials necessary for such a story, but it still con­tains materials that relate to various rabbinic figures.
Recasting rabbinic materials in a context that highlights biographical issues and attempts to some extent to arrive at the historical person is thus, to a small degree, a way of casting a rabbinic biography.

Rabbinic literature, in the broadest sense, can mean the entire spectrum of rabbinic writing throughout history.
The latter, more specific, sense is how the term is normally used in medieval and modern rabbinic writing (where Hazal normally refers only to the sages of the talmudic era), and in contemporary academic writing (where "rabbinic literature" refers to talmud, midrash, and related writings, but hardly ever to later texts).

 Jewish Women - A Feminist Reading of Midrash
Hence, it is not sufficient to differentiate between rabbinic stories and commentaries that are good for women, that in fact praise women, and between those that border on misogyny or are outright sexist.
If our question is merely about the rabbinic attitude towards women as it is reflected in the stories, we will find attitudes ranging from putting women on a pedestal to blaming women for the evils of the world.

 Bregman: Pseudepigraphy in Rabbinic Literature
Such a perception about the fundamental nature of rabbinic culture and tradition is just one of many reasons why there has been a shift in the last generation or so of scholarship toward viewing rabbinic texts less as historical reportage and more as literature.
This is related to the rabbinic notion that the Torah was given in accordance with the rulings of the sages.

 The Early Nazarene Christians and Rabbinic Judaism
Obviously this is prima facie evidence that the early Nazarene Church, which observed the Laws of Moses and found them not contrary to faith in the Messiah, maintained contact with Rabbinic Judaism, as it continued to develop after the destruction of the Temple.
Rabbinic Judaism had strayed far from the original teachings of Hillel himself, who was noted as a great peacemaker, and reconciler -- a man of love, kindness, and patience.
Either one of these -- their non-acceptance of rabbinic halakah and even more their belief in Jesus -- would have been sufficient to consign them to the category of apostates.
