Members of the unit “Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions” of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) are happy to present this book into the hands of scholars and students of biblical studies, as a new volume in the series “Bible in the Christian Orthodox Tradition” of the Peter Lang International Academic Publishers.

As in the previous volumes of the series, this book offers the latest scholoarly findings and conclusions in the field of biblical theology and research from the perspective, and based on the traditions, of the hisrtocial Orthoox Churches which read, studied, taught and commented on the Bible in their native languages. In this volume we focus on the biblical hermeneutics, criticism, interpretation and theology of the Church of Antioch: the Church that was born and nurtured in the historical Roman province of Syria-Palestina.

Thanks are due to all the scholars who contributed to this volume. Special thanks to Professor Paul Nadim Tarazi for his contribution to this volume and for being the inspiration behind the creation and continuation of our SBL group.
