Commentaries of Isho'dad of Merv, Bishop of Hadatha (c. 850 A.D.): Volume 4, Acts of the Apostles and Three Catholic Epistles

Full Product Description

The twin sisters Agnes Lewis (1843-1926) and Margaret Gibson (1843-1920) were pioneering biblical scholars who became experts in a number of ancient languages. Travelling widely in the Middle East, they made several significant discoveries, including one of the earliest manuscripts of the four gospels in Syriac, a dialect of Aramaic, the language probably spoken by Jesus himself. Originally published in the Horae Semitica series, this fascicule contains the text of an Assyrian bishop's biblical commentary. Considered by some to be the father of the Eastern Church, Isho'dad of Merv produced detailed discussions of most books of the Bible in the ninth century. This volume, first published in 1913, is a detailed interpretation of Acts and the epistles of James, Peter and John in both Syriac and English. Translated and edited by Margaret Gibson, this is a valuable resource for theologians by a key figure in Eastern Christianity.
