Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Weaknesses in prior works of this type, such as partisan scholarship and inadequate knowledge of rabbinic sources, prompted Lachs to provide a corrective. A running commentary gathers parallels from Mishna, Targum, Talmud, and Midrash to explain the New Testament text and place it in historical perspective, with intertestamental and Qumran literature and numerous secondary sources used for further clarification. Lachs attempts to solve many textural problems by positing Hebrew and Aramaic originals mistranslated into Greek. Though occasionally enlightening, he often fails to demonstrate precisely what light his parallels shed on the Gospels. For comprehensive subject collections.Craig W. Beard, Harding Univ.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Typically we miss it - we try to understand the Scriptures from our point of view in history, instead of letting history speak for itself. This book is a tremendous resource for discovering Rabbinic mindset and practices that we often misunderstand or worse yet, mistranslate.
