Book Condition: New
Book Type: Paperback
Paperback. 788 pages. Formatted for KindleEach verse of Latin is followed by its English translation. The Latin Torah: Fresh Translations of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy represents the oldest portion of the oldest extant Bible in the world. Torah, a Hebrew word meaning instruction or teaching, is the Jewish name for the first five books of the Bible. This book of books and the God revealed in it are sacred alike to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. The documents have existed in some form since the reign of King Solomon, some ten centuries before Christ. The Latin version of the Bible, found in Codex Amiatinus, the worlds oldest Bible containing all the books in our consensus Bibles, plus a few extras), was painstakingly crafted by Saint Jerome in the late 4th Century of the Christian Era, at the apex of seven centuries of biblical scholarship in many languages. In The Latin Torah, John Cunyus renders Jeromes ancient, Latin version into contemporary English, in a verse-by-verse translation. Each verse of Latin is followed by a verse of English. Stripped of all extraneous commentary and opinion, this book strives to present the heart of scripture in as straightforward a way as possible. This item ships from multiple locations.

Synopsis: In 587 BC, Jerusalem's Temple, God's dwelling place on earth, was reduced to a smoldering ruin. Its faithful worshipers were in exile, stripped of homes, possessions, and places of worship. Where was God's promise amidst such destruction? From catastrophe, something utterly new emerged. A physical Temple was replaced with a portable one, in the form of the written Word. The books that emerged from the Temple's destruction included Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. These works, rendered into Latin in the late 4th Century of the Christian Era by Saint Jerome, appear here in a Latin-English, verse-by-verse edition. Each verse of the Latin text is followed by its English translation. The Latin text of the Vulgate, used by permission from the German Bible Society, is drawn from Roger Gryson's masterful 1994 Edition of Biblia Sacra Iuxta Vulgatam Versionem. These works, translated afresh by John Cunyus, are the latest in Searchlight Press's Latin Old Testament Project.
