This is the first English translation of the commentary by fourth century A.D. theologian Ephrem the Syrian on the Diatessaron--a Gospel woven from the text of the four Gospels, which predates our earliest evidence of the official Syriac translation of the New Testament. The translation fills a gap in scholarship and will be appreciated by patristics and biblical scholars, hagiographers, and historians of Christianity."The translation is serviceable and illuminating. ... the commentary offers a fascinating glimpse of the style. exegetical method, and theology of perhaps the most important person in the history of early Syriac Christianity, and thus is of interest to New Testament scholars, textual critics, church historians, and liturgical specialists."--Religious Studies Reveiw
