Rocco A. Errico, internationally known biblical scholar, brings fresh insights to biblical passages through his knowledge of the language and culture of the Middle East in this revised, expanded version of the Ancient Aramaic Prayer of Jesus. The title comes from the Aramaic word for prayer, slotha: "setting your mind like a trap so that you may catch the thoughts of God." Learn the eight spiritual attunements within the Lord's Prayer that strengthen your connection with universal Spirit.
What is prayer? What exactly does it mean? What does prayer accomplish? Dr. Rocco A. Errico answers these questions about prayer through this newly revised and expanded edition of his popular Ancient Aramaic Prayer of Jesus--the Lord's Prayer. He focuses on the original Aramaic manuscripts, the ancient culture of the Middle East, and its Aramaic language of two thousand years ago. Errico presents definitions for words such as our Father, hallowed, daily bread, temptation, evil, and amen from the linguistic and cultural viewpoint of the era. You will learn about the eight spiritual attunements within the prayer that strengthen your connection with God. Most important, Errico gives you a feeling for what Jesus said as he spoke this powerful message in his native tongue and what those words mean today. Discover the way of peace, health, prosperity, and understanding as you learn about the true meaning of prayer and how to "set a trap" for the inexhaustible power of God!
