Description

Dr Michael Weitzman was one of the leading biblical scholars of his generation. This volume brings together his most important contributions to the study of the Hebrew and the Syriac bibles, and the relationship between ancient Judaism and emerging Christianity. The Syriac Version has not traditionally been studied in its Jewish context. From Judaism to Christianity examines this Version in relation to the non-rabbinic Jewish community in which it was produced, and traces the development of its religious orientation towards Christianity. It will be extremely useful to anyone interested in the relationships between the Versions, as well as its Jewish literary, religious, and historical setting.

In addition to being a biblical scholar of distinction, Dr Weizman was also an outstanding Semitic philologist, an accomplished Classicist, and a Statistician.
