Exegesis in the Targum of Psalms: The Old, the New, and the Rewritten
Edwards, Timothy

Piscataway, N.J.: Gorgias, 2007 pp. xviii + 288. $102.00

Series Information
Gorgias Dissertations/Biblical Studies, 28/1


Description: The Old, the New and the Rewritten illustrates how Targum Psalms creatively interprets selected psalms and how those interpretations relate to other Jewish and Christian traditions, including early translations of the psalms, rabbinic Midrashim, the New Testament and early Church Fathers. The study of these Psalms suggests viewing Targum Psalms as a creative partner in the world of biblical interpretation, as opposed to a compilation of already existing midrashic material. Edwards portrays the Targum as a link between the written and oral Torah that leads its readers on a path to tradition.
