Dr Michael Weitzman was one of the leading biblical scholars of his generation. This volume brings together his most important contributions to the study of the Hebrew and the Syriac bibles, and the relationship between ancient Judaism and emerging Christianity. The Syriac Version has not traditionally been studied in its Jewish context. From Judaism to Christianity examines this Version in relation to the non-rabbinic Jewish community in which it was produced, and traces the development of its religious orientation towards Christianity. It will be extremely useful to anyone interested in the relationships between the Versions, as well as its Jewish literary, religious, and historical setting.In addition to being a biblical scholar of distinction, Dr Weizman was also an outstanding Semitic philologist, an accomplished Classicist, and a Statistician.Features* Dr Weitzman was of international repute, especially in Israel, USA, Canada, The Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia* His work is authoritative and of high quality* He approaches the study from a non-traditional aspectTable of ContentsPrefacePart One: IntroductionFrom Judaism to Christianity: The Syriac Version of the Hebrew BiblePart Two: Translating the Hebrew BibleOn Translating the Old Testament: The Achievement of William TyndaleThe Interpretative Character of the Syriac Old TestamentThe Origin of the Peshitta PsalterThe Peshitta Psalter and its Hebrew VorlageThe Hebrew and Syriac Test of the Book of JobTiro--Wine or Grape?
