Synopsis: In 1924, Professor Sperber graduated from Bonn University with a dissertation on "Das Propheten-Targum in seinem Verhaltnis zum masoretischen Text." He was then invited to prepare a critical edition of the Targum. Thus Professor Sperber began an immense task.
"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. Needless to say this work is indispensable for students of the Old Testament. The reviews that have accumulated over the years speak for themselves.
'It is already evident...that the publication of this major edition of the Targum is an important event in the history of Biblical and Aramaic studies.'
"Booklist of the Society for Old Testament Study, 1960.

Frank Zimmermann, "Jewish Social Studies, 1962.
'... Dr. Sperber spent over forty years producing his "magnum opus...more than mechanical work was involved in editing such a huge amount of data...numerous crucial decisions had to be made, many of these based upon a very intimate knowledge of the character of the Targums...the amount of work required by a project of this type staggers the imagination...this fourth volume is a thorough study of the character of the Aramaic of the Targums...'
