Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Targums and the Transmission of Scripture into Judaism and Christianity contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, a list of abbreviations and the preface. The chapters are grouped together under four headings, which highlight their principal concerns. All the chapters are to a greater or lesser extent concerned with the Aramaic Targumim, and many of them deal also with the exegetical traditions to be found in the Rabbinic Midrashim. All the items in the collection itself are presented here as contributing to an overarching theme, a discussion of how the manifold, and sometimes mysterious meanings of the Hebrew Bible were transmitted into the Judaism of post-biblical times, and (to a lesser degree) into early Christianity.

Keywords:Aramaic Targumim; Christianity; Judaism; Rabbinic Midrashim
