An Introduction to Aramaic is a straightforward introduction to biblical Aramaic for beginning students who are already familiar with Hebrew. All Aramaic passages in the Old Testament are included, along with an introduction to other Aramaic texts, such as ancient inscriptions, Dead Sea Scrolls, rabbinic literature, and quotations in the New Testament. There are also paradigms, a complete glossary, and a list of resources for further study as well as practice exercises for each chapter. This newly corrected second edition clarifies certain points in the first edition, updates the contents, and provides an answer key.

Praise for the first edition:

“There is little doubt that Greenspahn deserves high commendation for this work. The book is reader-friendly, well organized, and informative.… This textbook is a welcome addition, and I strongly recommend its use in teaching beginning Aramaic.”
Andrews University Seminary Studies

“In all, this is a very successful and long overdue book, one which I hope will undergo many future editions.”
Journal of Hebrew Scriptures

“Our class was able to complete the entire workbook, thereby gaining a good sense of the basics of Aramaic and a familiarity with the Aramaic portions of the Bible without becoming entangled in the intricacies of the original.”
