Comments: Manuscript print in letter format, unpaginated (154 pp). There‘s no indication who translated the Natzratim Version from the Greek and Shem Tov´s Hebrew version into English. A possible candidate is James S. Trimm. Both versions are presented in parallel columns. In the undated Preface the author states that he prefers the Receptus group of manuscripts to the Alexandrian group; he also explains that two Hebrew / Mishnaic manuscripts of Mattityahu could be based on a, what he calls, „travel- journal“, which Matthew wrote during his walk with Yeshua and that a composition has been made from these notes. This results in several Hebrew/ Aramaic versions to which there‘s access today. This composition is being shown on the left column. The reading on the right is that of Shem Tov ben-Yitzchak Ibn Shaprut, in a Judaic treatise: The »Even Bohan«, which was evidently copied from an ancient Mishnaic- Hebrew version of Matthew (14th century C.E); this, our Author says, it held to be an original Hebrew composition, [but, critics (e. g. Pinchas E. Lapide) say that the Shem Tov manuscript is clearly translated from a Greek version]. - Many alternate manuscript readings are taken into consideration and shown in the text. An Appendix, from p. 103 onward, collects ancient sayings around the 1st century C.E. era. The last 40 pages are commentaries on Matthew and rabbinic notes on the subject.
