What is the best way to read and understand the Talmud as a Gentile?

Hi, I have begun to read the Talmud and understand the basic distinctions of Mishnah, Gemara, and the format in which it is written. I have also done a bit of research on how to read the Talmud, I am by no means an expert, nor do I ever hope to be, but I understand how to read it on a surface level for the most part.

I am reading it mainly for scholarly and intellectual curiosity, and I am definitely not reading it to judge anyone by it. I understand it has many opinions and many things to say, so it would be foolish of me to claim anything about it like many have.

However, I would like to go deeper in understanding the context and arguments being presented and was wondering what some resources are to help me go deeper in understanding it?

I hope that this doesn’t offend, as I have no desire to, and I hope that I can continue to learn more about this fascinating collection of books!

Thank you and have a great day!
