Throughout the almost two thousand years of Jewish-Christian co-existence, Christian views of Judaism and its sacred texts have generally been quite negative. There have also been notable exceptions, however, and especially since the second half of the last century, some positive developments can be noted. In the present essay we will consider some major currents of Christian thinking on Judaism as it has developed since the Early Modern Period, with an emphasis on Protestant thought. Geographically, we concentrate on Western Europe, the area where the great catastrophe of the Shoah took place, which had a considerable impact on Western theology after the Second World War.

[long]The bilingual (Aramaic-Hebrew) concordance to the Targum of the Prophets is the product of an international project based in the Theological University of the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands, Kampen (ThUK) and supported by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). With this publication a major research tool becomes available to those engaged in Biblical and Jewish Studies.
For the first time meaningful quotations from the Targum and the Masoretic Hebrew text of the Bible are set out in parallel so that the user of the concordance can study the translation technique of the Targum in much greater detail than was hitherto possible.
The concordance opens up Targum Jonathan to scholars in various fields. It is an indispensable tool not only for research in the fields of textual criticism and the history of interpretation of the Hebrew Bible, but also for the study of early Judaism, the New Testament and patristics.
To facilitate consultation on the basis of the Hebrew, every concordance per book contains a Hebrew-Aramaic index. The final volume contains additions and corrections, a cumulative Aramaic-Hebrew index, as well as an English-Aramaic index.

Alternative Targum Traditions

The Use of Variant Readings for the Study in Origin and History of Targum Jonathan

Series:

Alberdina Houtman and Harry Sysling

The present study explores the possibility of using variant readings of the Targum of the Prophets to get a better insight into the origin and history of Targum Jonathan. The focus is on two sorts of variant readings: the Tosefta Targums and the targumic quotations in rabbinic and medieval Jewish literature. The chapter on the Tosefta Targums concentrates on variants from the book of Samuel. The chapter on the targumic quotations includes quotations of all the Prophets in early Jewish literature. In the Appendix a full list is given of all quotations of Targums of the Prophets presently known. The book is useful for the study of the genesis of Targum Jonathan as well as for its later developments.
