Detailed Description:   

Midrash Tanhuma or Midrash Yelammedenu group of aggadic Midrashim which include the standard printed Tanhuma; the Tanhuma edited by Buber; Deuteronomy Rabbah; Numbers Rabbah II; Exodus Rabbah II; parts of the Pesikta Rabbati; and various other Midrashim, complete or fragmentary, published or still in manuscript. The features common to all of these are: the frequent mention of Rabbi Tanhuma; a special method of halakhic proems which serve as an introduction to aggadic homilies. All of them are homiletic Midrashim.

Most of the Tanhuma Yelammedenu Midrashim, including the published ones, are written in a mixture of mishnaic Hebrew and Galilean Aramaic. Several Greek and some Latin words are also found. Some fragmentary texts, however, are written in a purer more artificial Hebrew with hardly any Aramaic. This is no sign of early origin but the contrary is typical of the late Midrashim along with other symptoms like pseudography.
