Targum and Testament Revisited is a new edition of a text first published in 1972, now revised in light of research during the intervening period. In his introduction Martin McNamara details significant developments in the field, ending with a note on the tell-like structure of targumic tradition, with interpretations from different ages, also showing the presence of continuity in interpretation of certain passages down through the centuries of Jewish history. The first part of the book examines the formation of targumic tradition, specifically treating the early written Targums, Aramaic as the language of the Jews, and the origin, transmission, and date of the Targums of the Pentateuch and the Prophets. Part two considers the possible relationship between certain New Testament passages and targumic tradition, including a reverential manner of speaking of God; God and creation; the Holy Spirit; sin and virtue; eschatology; and the Targums and Johannine literature. There has been intense examination of most aspects of targumic tradition over recent decades. McNamara draws on these varied sources--- including the annotated English translation of all the Targums in the Aramaic Bible --- and offers an appendix outlining all extant Targums of the rabbinic tradition. McNamara's updated overview will be an indispensable resource for scholars of biblical and Jewish studies.
The book interprets Hebrews against the background of ancient synagogue preaching and liturgy. It argues that the text is an exhortative homily for Tisha be-Av, founded upon readings from Exod 31: 18-32: 35 and Jer 31: 31-34. This hermeneutical key opens new perspectives on Hebrews. ***** Die Untersuchung deutet den Hebraer(brief) auf dem Hintergrund der antiken Synagogenhomilie und -liturgie. Basis ist ein hermeneutischer Schlussel, wonach der Schrift als mahnender Homilie zu Tischa be-Aw die Lesungen aus 31,18-32,35 und Jer 31,31-34 zugrunde liegen. Dies eroffnet neue Perspektiven auf den Text des Hebraers.
