If you know biblical Aramaic, you'd need to adjust to these differences (as well as to different scripts), but it probably wouldn't be that hard. If you know some Jewish Talmudic Aramaic (Jewish Babylonian Aramaic), which is also an eastern form of Aramaic, even some of the grammar might be familiar.
As a matter of fact, yes. :oQuote:
By the way, you're not the same David R who authored the Epistles of John in the Westminster Bible Companion Series, are you?
