Chapter Summary

The general tendency of scholars to give the right of primogeniture to Midrash over Targum, stimulated Avigdor Shinan to offer a criteria of determination by which scholars would address this issue more accurately. Two Targumic Toseftot on Zech 2:1415, one published by Alexander Sperber as Additional Tosefta, the other by Rimon Kasher, are relevant to Tg Zeph. The nature of this lengthy Tosefta is an infusion of midrashic targumim while elaborating on Targum Jonathan (TJ). But it does more than that.25 It reorganizes Zephaniahs diffused oracles within a larger treatise and redefines them. Kasher theorizes that the Toseftot are midrashic targumim for Shabbat- Hanukkah haftarah based on the formula ממה שׁהשׁלים בנביא.

Keywords: Alexander Sperber; Rimon Kasher; Targum; Targum Jonathan (TJ); Targumic Toseftot; Zephaniah
