Finding that there are many traces left by the Aramaic language in the Lebanon and Syria, the author, Father Youssef Hobeica, takes a decade to collect them and compile them into this book. It is a compilation of the original Aramaic dialect as it appears in the spoken Syrian and Lebanese dialects of Arabic, or in the churches of these countries. It is evident from his work that the influence of the Aramaic language is extensive. Its documentation insures that it should not be lost or forgotten as time forges on.

    Verbs of Leading in the Hebrew Bible

    ISBN: 978-1-61143-925-0
    Authors of the Hebrew Bible had at least 17 different verbs which they could use to represent “leading” or “guiding” in the Hebrew Bible. What are these “verbs of leading” and how are they related to one another? Why did an author choose the particular “leading” verb he chose in a particular context? Every occurrence of a verb of leading in the Hebrew Bible is examined through the lens of semantic-role theory by assigning roles to each of the phrases typically used with the verbs. This study resolves some problem passages and supplements traditional lexicographical research.
