The Bible is more than anything else a Near Eastern account of spiritual events and teachings. In his seminal work, Dr. Errico builds a bridge between Western ways of understanding and Near Eastern social realities that are embedded in the Bible. He helps us see the Bible through Semitic, Aramaic eyes. Bypassing doctrinal creeds and rigid interpretations, he judiciously corrects numerous errors and misleading literal translations that have caused confusion for centuries. This book equips the reader with seven key insights to understand the allusions, parables, and teachings of the Bible, opening the door to the ancient Aramaic world from which the Bible emerged.
