Reading any ancient text in its original language can be a difficult chore, and even more so when it comes to the New Testament: the numerous translations, adapted from many sources, diverge wildly in language and vocabulary. So this classic reference work can be a valuable friend to the Bible scholar or student of ancient languages.Culled from "the latest and the best authorities," this 1893 dictionary-style work is a handy guide to all the potentially questionable words you'll encounter while reading the New Testament in the original Greek. From proper names to simple nouns to phrases for which there is no direct equivalence in English (what word did the Greeks use to describe someone "of whose descent there is no account"?), this is an essential volume for anyone who wants to read and genuinely understand the New Testament on its own terms.Late 19th-century editor and translator WILLIAM JAMES HICKIE is best remembered for his translation of Aristophanes' Clouds.

In 1924, Professor Sperber graduated from Bonn University with a dissertation on "Das Propheten-Targum in seinem Verhältnis zum masoretischen Text". He was then invited to prepare a critical edition of the Targum. The Bible in Aramaic is the fruit of more than forty years of study, during which he made innumerable trips to various countries in order to visit libraries and examine manuscripts. The first part of the Bible in Aramaic appeared in 1959.
