1478Request for prepublication review
- Nov 27, 2008I have written a ms. titled /Verbal Coordination in the Gospels: An
Explication of a Residual Aramaic Syntatical Construction /and would
like a prepublication review.
My thesis is that underlying certain rough expressions in the Greek text
of the Gospels there is an Aramaic construction, referred to by Gesenius
as verbal coordination in Hebrew. I examine various documents in
Aramaic from the MT text of Daniel through the DSS to the targums and
the Old Syriac Gospels and find the same construction in Aramaic,
whereby two verbs in a close syntactical construction function with the
first verb acting as an adverb of manner to the second verb. After
investigating the LXX's translation of this construction of the Hebrew
and Aramaic, I examine various verses from the Gospels and demonstrate
this construction explains the poor Greek in certain texts and draw
conclusions for the translations of the text and the impact on the study
of the life and sayings of Jesus.
I would post a copy of the ms. to anyone willing to read it with an eye
toward writing a review, should it be found acceptable.
