9780963129260: Aramaic Light on the Gospel of Matthew (Aramaic New Testament Series) (Volume 1)

If you instinctively shy away from “commentaries”— Aramaic Light on the Gospel of Matthew will surprise you! No dull theological seminary textbook, this commentary will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good narrative. It carries you back almost two thousand years, providing a clear perspective of Jesus in the light of his own language, people and times. This inimitable commentary acts as a Near Eastern guide, revealing to the Western mind a more intimate picture of the socio-religious and psychological environment of the period. It’s approach is simple, informative, and scholarly without using specialized theological terminology. Each comment is written in narrative form, clarifying the idioms, customs, and manners of Jesus’ day. This commentary is suitable for use by anyone who is eager to resume acquaintance with Jesus’ powerful Gospel of the Kingdom. Aramaic Light on the Gospel of Matthew takes you through the heart of the gospel, illuminating difficult and puzzling passages and offering unparalleled insight into the character and behavior of Near Eastern Semites. This is the field of Dr. Errico’s and Dr. Lamsa’s research and expertise. This volume is more than just a revision of Dr. Lamsa’s commentaries, Gospel Light and More Light on the Gospel. Dr. Errico has edited, expanded and annotated these previous works in the new format that Dr. Lamsa desired. In addition, over 50% of this book contains unpublished material that the two of them had drafted just before Dr. Lamsa died in 1975. Dr. Errico completed the comments that they had only outlined and has also added information derived from his continual research in Aramaic word meanings and Near Eastern Semitic studies.

About the Author:

Dr. Rocco A. Errico, PhD., DD, is an ordained minister, author and lecturer and one of the nations’s leading biblical scholars working from the original Aramaic texts. For ten years he studied intensively with Dr. George M. Lamsa, world-renowned native Assyrian scholar of the Scriptures. In 1970 Dr. Errico established the Noohra Foundation, which is dedicated to helping people of all faiths to understand the Near Eastern background and Aramaic interpretation of the Bible. He is the Dean of Biblical Studies for Dr. Barbara King’s School of Ministry, Hillside Chapel and Truth Center in Atlanta, Georgia, where he teaches ongoing classes based on the Aramaic texts of the Bible. He also presents an online class one Saturday a month under the auspices of the Aramaic Bible Institute (www.aramaicbibleinstitute.com). Dr. Errico is the recipient of numerous awards and academic degrees, including a doctorate in Letters from the College of Seminarians, The Apostolic Succession of Antioch and the Church of the East—American See a doctorate in Divinity from St. Ephrem’s Institute in Sweden, and a doctorate in Philosophy from the School of Christianity in Los Angeles. Dr. George M. Lamsa, ThD (1892-1975) was born in a civilization with customs, manners and language almost identical to those in the time of Jesus. His native tongue was full of similar idioms and parables, untouched by the outside world in 1900 years. Dr. Lamsa’s formal education began under the priests and deacons of the ancient Church of the East and he later graduated with the highest honors ever bestowed from the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Colleges in Iran and Turkey. After arriving in the United States in his early 20s, Dr. Lamsa worked by day as a printer, and by night he went to school. He later studied at the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia, and at Dropsie College in Philadelphia. It was his own inner compulsion, and the urging of hundreds who heard him lecture, that drove him forward and brought about—after 30 years of labor, research and study—his translation of the Holy Bible from a branch of the ancient Aramaic language that the earliest Christians used.
