Chapter Summary

The subject of "forbidden targumim" has been discussed periodically in papers devoted to the specific topic, as well as in more general studies of the relationship between the targumim and other rabbinic literature. There remain only the two Pentateuchal passages, the story of Reuben and the second account of the golden calf, that according to the Tannaitic sources were to be "read but not translated" in the synagogue. In contrast to the general agreement found among the rabbinic lists, we are confronted with quite a lot of variance in the extant manuscripts of the targumim of the Pentateuch. As noted by S. Alexander for the Palestinian Targum according to MS Neofiti, this goes far beyond the two or three passages in the rabbinic lists.

Keywords: MS Neofiti; rabbinic literature; S.Alexander; targumim; Tannaitic sources
