About Franz Delitzsch' Son
Franz Delitzsch translated the Hebrew New Testament into what I understand is a lovely and still very readable (in 2008) kind of 'Mishnaic Hebrew'.

His son Friedrich was an Assyrian scholar, which I didn't know until TONIGHT. KOOL. <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: -->

So, do I have THAT right, is Delitzsch' Hebrew New Testament a kind of Mishnaic (spelling?) Hebrew?

Would someone here know about this?

I've had a copy of Delitzsch's Hebrew New Testament since the late 1980's, and I've decided that THIS YEAR is when I'm going to finallyyyyy learn how to read Hebrew.

Franz Delitzsch (1813, Delitzsch - March 4, 1890) was a German Lutheran theologian and Hebraist.

He held the professorship of theology at Rostock from 1846 to 1850, at Erlangen until 1867, and after that at Leipzig until his death. Delitzsch wrote many commentaries on books of the Bible, Jewish antiquities, biblical psychology, a history of Jewish poetry, and Christian apologetics.

He defended the Jewish community against anti-Semitic attacks and translated the New Testament into Hebrew, In 1880 he established the Institutum Judaicum[1] in Leipzig for the training of missionary workers among Jews.

Today Delitzsch is best known for his translation of the New Testament into Hebrew. Delitzsch's translation is still considered the standard New Testament edition in Hebrew. It is remarkable in that it was composed before the modern revival of the language but still remains fresh and alive for readers today.

Delitzsch also collaborated with J. F. K. Keil on a commentary series which covers the whole of the Old Testament and is still in print, having first appeared in 1861. Delitzsch contributed the commentaries on Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Isaiah.

His son, Friedrich Delitzsch (1850???1922), was an Assyrian scholar and author of works on Assyrian language, literature, and history.
