This inimitable commentary opens a doorway into the Near Eastern culture of the times, the powerful faith of the patriarchs, their visions and dreams, and their unsophisticated lifestyle. It unlocks many misunderstood passages of scripture and clarifies the Creation epic poem, the Adam and Eve story, Noah and the great flood, the Tower of Babel, the mysterious priesthood of Melchizedek, Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot?s wife turned into a pillar of salt, and much more.
This volume is not just a revision of Dr. Lamsa?s Old Testament Light commentary on Genesis, 1964. Dr. Errico has edited, expanded, and annotated the previous comments in the new format that Dr. Lamsa desired. In addition, this book contains unpublished material that the two of them had only drafted prior to Dr. Lamsa?s death in 1975. Dr. Errico completed these comments, adding information derived from his continual research in Aramaic word meanings and Near Eastern Semitic Studies.
