Summary of Neofiti Genesis (View)
Date: 300-600 C.E.
Description: Targum Neofiti is the largest Western Targum (interpretation) of the Torah. More than a mere Aramaic translation of the Hebrew text, Neofiti offers lengthy expansions on the biblical text at several places. It is often more expansive than Targum Onkelos, but less so than Targum Pseudo-Jonathan. This Targum family contains material that may be dated just after the New Testament but most scholars see its origins in the 4th century C.E.
