In A Tribute to Geza Vermes, topics such as the Semitica, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Targums and Rabbinica, Judaism and Christianity in history and the New Testament are covered. The Aramaic Bible looks at the Targums of the Pentateuch and their Jewish biblical interpretation as well as the Aramaic language in depth and the impact it has on Biblical Studies. The Targum Studies Collection is a valuable addition to anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of the Aramaic translations of Scripture.
The 4-Volume Targum StudiesCollection covers a wide range of topics including analysis of terms and phrases used in the book of Isaiah. Also discussed are the Targums as part of the Pentateuch, the Hagiographa as well as the part it plays in the New Testament. Studying the Targums is important because of its value as a part of linguistic studies in addition to uncovering the history of biblical interpretation.
This volume draws together essays by fourteen international scholars in the field of Aramaic and Syriac studies. The contributions in this collection reflect Martin McNamara’s interests in the study of the Targums, the development of the Aramaic language and early Jewish and Christian literature. Many of the contributors to this volume have worked with Professor McNamara in preparing volumes for the Aramaic Bible series, to which he has devoted so much time and energy.

The twenty-six essays in The Aramaic Bible represent the papers read at the international Conference on the Aramiac Bible held in Dublin in 1992. The purpose of the Conference was to bring together leading specialists on the Targums and related topics to discuss issues in the light of recent developments. For example, Second Temple interpretation of the Scriptures, Qumran Literature, targumic and Palestinian Aramaic, new Genizah manuscripts, Jewish tradition, Origen's Hexapla, Pseudepigrapha, Apocrypha and the Christian West. The papers are arranged under seven headings: Targum Texts and Editions; The Aramaic Language: The Targums and Jewish Biblical Interpretation; Targums of the Pentateuch; Targums of the Hagiographa; Targums and New Testament; Jewish Traditions and Christian Writings.
