Ask Christianbook


Q: Does the book take for granted a knowledge of biblical Hebrew? And secondly, does the book offer a suitable preparation for reading the OT and NT Peshitta (and Targums) or is its focus primarily the Aramaic sections of the Hebrew Bible?


Yes, in the comparisons of the language it does take for granted knowledge of Biblical Hebrew, though the author does not presuppose that everyone has had that background. The focus of the Grammar is on the Ezra/Daniel portions. There are some other writings mentioned in the Appendices, but Targums and Peshitta are not dealt with.
