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
