Summary of Pseudo Jonathan Exodus

Date: 300-1200 C.E.

Description: Targum Pseudo-Jonathan is a western Targum (interpretation) of the Torah from the land of Israel. It's original name was the Jerusalem Targum, but because of a printer's mistake it was later labeled Targum Jonathan, in reference to Jonathan ben Uzziel. Most scholars now refer to the text as Targum Pseudo-Jonathan. This Targum family contains a mixture of material that dates to prior to the 4th century C.E. and other material that dates to Medieval times.
