The message of Jesus and of the New Testament is presented as the fulfilment of the Jewish scriptures. It is therefore vital to know how the latter were interpreted in the Jewish world of the 1st century A. D. This book calls attention to the riches contained in the Targum. Alongside other sources the Targumic traditions, critically approached, shed light on a number of New Testament passages where the authors presuppose a wide context of development familiar to the Palestinian Jews contemporaneous with Jesus. The Targum also initiates us into an approach to scripture different from ours, but at the same time also that of the first Christian expositors, concerned to show that Jesus fulfilled the expectation of Israel to its last detail, The Targum.
