"This volume is part of a series of English translations of the Syriac Peshitta along with the Syriac text carried out by an international team of scholars. Dan King and J. Edward Walters have translated the text, while Kiraz has prepared the Syriac text in the west Syriac script, fully vocalized and pointed. The translation and the Syriac text are presented on facing pages so that both can be studied together. All readers are catered for: those wanting to read the text in English, those wanting to improve their grasp of Syriac by reading the original language along with a translation, and those wanting to focus on a fully vocalized Syriac text."
The title of this blog is taken from the opening words of the Greek text of the Book of Hebrews and may be translated "in many and various ways" (NRSV). This blog will explore the many and various ways in which the Book of Hebrews has been interpreted throughout the centuries.
Expect to see resources on Hebrews, reviews and summaries about articles and books on Hebrews, news about research in Hebrews, information about websites dedicated to Hebrews, and anything else pertinent to the study of Hebrews.
