  • The Targumsby Paul V. M. Flesher; Bruce Chilton

    Baylor University Press 2011; US$ 69.95

    The value and significance of the targums —translations of the Hebrew Bible into Aramaic, the language of Palestinian Jews for centuries following the Babylonian Exile—lie in their approach to translation: within a typically literal rendering of a text, they incorporate extensive exegetical material, additions, and paraphrases. These alterations... more...
