Mishnah Teaches:

  • At 5 years old [one is fit] for the Scriptures
  • At 10 years old [one is fit] for the Mishnah
  • At 13 years old for [the fulfilling of] the Commandments
  • At 15 years old for the Talmud
  • At 18 years old for the bride-chamber
  • At 20 years old for the pursuing of a calling
  • At 30 years old for authority
  • At 40 years old for Qabbalah [if in the priesthood at the Temple]
    • (Not Necessarily Mishnaic)

In all this, study religion versus relationship - "You have heard...but I say...."
