Aramaic Bible by Philip S. Alexander

Book Description

The first translation into English of all the extant Targums, together with introductions and annotations. Each volume examines the place of a particular Targum or group of Targums in Jewish life, liturgy and biblical interpretation. Each Targum is evaluated in the light of Jewish tradition and of modern linguistic and biblical research. The notes point to parallel passages in other Jewish and Christian biblical and liturgical texts. Each translated Targum has its own apparatus indicating the relationship between the English translation and the Aramaic original and every volume has a useful bibliography.Praise for Canticles..".students of Scripture and Judaica as well as those concerned with the New Testament and early Christianity will warmly welcome The Aramaic Bible . . . strongly recommended to theological, biblical and Jewish studies libraries." --Geza Vermes, Wolfson College, Oxford

Profiling Jewish Literature in Antiquity by Philip S. Alexander Profiling Jewish Literature in Antiquity, Hardback (November 2013)

This book presents a new methodology for the study of ancient Jewish literature extant in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. It arises from empirical investigation into the literary structures of many anonymous and pseudepigraphic sources, including Pseudepigrapha and Apocrypha of the Old Testament, the larger Dead Sea Scrolls, Midrash, and the Talmuds.
