9780963129291: Aramaic Light on the Acts of the Apostles

Aramaic Light on the Acts of the Apostles, New Testament Series Volume 4, is a unique commentary based on Aramaic, the language of Jesus, and on ancient Near/Middle Eastern customs and manners. This volume presents new insights into and understanding of the words and idioms as they were used by Jesus, his apostles and contemporaries.

The method and style of writing is simple, informative, and scholarly, without using specialized theological terminology. Dr. Errico and Dr. Lamsa acts as guides, revealing to the Western mind a more intimate picture of the socio-religious and psychological environment of the times. The book of Acts comes alive under their skillful and cultural approach. They bring clarification to many misunderstood verses of scripture and episodic experiences of the apostles and growth of Jesus’ spiritual movement under apostolic guidance. Topics include: The Ascension of Jesus, Pentecost and the Descent of the Holy Spirit, Paul’s Conversion, Healing Methods, and more.

This volume is not just a revision of Dr. Lamsa’s commentaries, New Testament Commentary, 1945, and More Light on the Gospel, 1968. Dr. Errico has edited, expanded and annotated these previous works in the new format that Dr Lamsa desired. In addition, this book contains unpublished material that the two of them outlined prior to Dr Lamsa’s death in 1975. Dr Errico completed these comments and has added information derived from his continual research in Near Eastern Semitic studies.

About the Author:

DR. ROCCO A. ERRICO, Ph.D., D.D., is an ordained minister, author and lecturer and one of the nations’s leading biblical scholars working from the original Aramaic texts. 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. 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.

GEORGE M. LAMSA, Th.D. (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, he devoted his life to translating the Holy Bible from the Ancient Eastern Text and also authored numerous biblical commentaries.
