Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This study explores a peculiar Semitic syntactical construction known as verbal coordination in Hebrew as defined by Gesenius, whereby two verbs joined in a tight construction function as a grammatical unit, the first verb modifying the second as to the manner of its action. Evidence presented from the Hebrew Scriptures through the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Targuminim to the Old Syriac Gospels shows this structure also occurs in Aramaic. It is demonstrrated that this construction underlies certain clumsy expressions in the Greek text of the Gospels, which offers a different perspective for understanding, interpretation and translating the text with particular application to the life and teachings of Jesus.
