An Introduction to Aramaic is a straightforward introduction to biblical Aramaic for beginning students who are already familiar with Hebrew. All Aramaic passages in the Old Testament are included, along with an introduction to other Aramaic texts, such as ancient inscriptions, Dead Sea Scrolls, rabbinic literature, and quotations in the New Testament. There are also paradigms, a complete glossary, and a list of resources for further study as well as practice exercises for each chapter. This revised edition clarifies certain points in the first edition, updates the contents and provides an answer key."Greenspahn has succeeded admirably in producing a very user-friendly introduction to the Aramaic language."--Max Rogland, Review of Biblical Literature, 2004Frederick E. Greenspahn, Ph.D. (1977) in Biblical Studies, Brandeis University, is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado.
