Synopsis: This book shows how, in the reapplication of the parables in their particular situations, Aphrahat and Ephrem have given a paradigmatic character to the parables and were not concerned with any techniques or rules of exegesis but rather with the suitability of the exegesis for the needs of their community. In character their exegesis can range from straightforward interpretation to something that is more allegorical. The book throws light on how they have given equal importance to Scripture and tradition in their exegesis. Contrary to the common opinion, our study revealed at least two instances where Ephrem probably knew the works of Aphrahat. Finally the study shows evidence for the probable dependence of Aphrahat and Ephrem on both Diatessaron and on a form of Old Syriac for the Gospel texts.
