Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter summarizes the results of investigations on Tosefta Targums (TTs). It provides a short overview of the common opinion regarding the story of the development of the Targums. The Targums originated in Palestine in the late Second Temple period. The oldest Targums were probably written in a formal dialect, such as the language of the Aramaic Qumran documents. The original Palestinian Targum that may have formed the base of Targum Jonathan has been lost, and at best some remnants have survived in the Palestinian tradition. The TTs to the Books of Samuel have probably been used to supplement Targum Jonathan, just as the TTs to the Pentateuch supplemented Onkelos, and therefore their language has been adapted to Targum Jonathan to some extent.

Keywords: Aramaic Qumran documents; Palestine; Tosefta Targums (TTs)
