Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the test, translation and notes connected with this study on the Dead Sea Genesis Apocryphon. It provides an introduction to the present edition, and Aramaic Transcription with English Translation. This survey covers only major developments in the publication of the Aramaic text (i.e. transcription), and does not deal with the numerous translations available. The Genesis Apocryphon was among the initial cache of seven scrolls discovered by a member of the Ta'amireh Bedouin tribe near the Dead Sea. It was one of the four manuscripts purchased from the Bedouin by Mar Athanasius Yeshue Samuel, the Syrian Metropolitan of Jerusalem, for approximately two hundred and fifty U.S. dollars.

Keywords: Aramaic transcription; Dead Sea Genesis Apocryphon; Ta'amireh Bedouin tribe
