‭Two unsupported assumptions have hampered comparison of the Targumim with the New Testament. One assumption presumes the Targumim are pre-Christian; the other presumes that they are too late to be of relevance to exegesis of the New Testament. The history of discussion shows that, in alternating cycles, these views have posed obstacles to critical comparison. Analogies between Targumic passages and the New Testament indicate a relationship of four types, each of which is explored in this essay. In aggregate they support the independent finding that the process of Targumic formation overlapped with the emergence of the New Testament.‬
