Product Description

How did Holy Scripture, the Bible, Mikra, come to command the great influence on religionand public life that it has held for almost two thousand years and still holds in today's modern, now globalized world? The term Mikra is frequently used interchangeably with Bible and Holy Scripture. Nevertheless the term carries more freight, for it means "the way in which the text has always been and ought to be recited and understood by those who have been closely connected with the texts."The many scholars, all specialists in their fields, who contribute to this expansive volume elucidate the many translations and interpretations of the texts from the formation of the canon, through the Greek and Aramaic translations, the Samaritans, the Rabbis, the New Testament writers, the Latin translations, and the early Christian fathers.
