Here we see Dr. Errico at work with a classic text from the New Testament, exhibiting his inimitable blend of rigorous scholarship and intuitive interpretation to great advantage. Dr. Errico’s line-by-line translation runs on opposite pages to the original Aramaic as the book provides hundreds of footnotes clarifying cultural, political, and theological points raised in the translation. His intention is to carry the reader directly into the Semitic-Aramaic world in which this text originates and still lives. The simplicity, directness, and typical Eastern transparency and manner of delivery become evident when one reads the text of this ‘Shemitic’ dialect.
