This answer and this one bring several commentaries who hold that Targum Yonasan was not written by Yonasan ben Uziel. Are there any other people mentioned who may have authored the work?

To clarify:

  1. I will not accept answers that bring other sources defending the opinion that Yonasan Ben Uziel indeed wrote this.

  2. I am looking for actual sources that bring theories for its authorship as well as an explanation behind why the source believes that this person could be the author. If an answer does not meet these criteria, it will not be accepted.

  3. I AM NOT LOOKING FOR SOURCES THAT YONASAN BEN UZIEL DIDN’T WRITE IT. I am looking for sources that anybody else wrote it.

    There is absolutely no way to know. At most you can know the century and country of authorship. – mevaqesh Nov 17 '17 at 3:39
  • @mevaqesh If you can narrow it down to that much and nobody else comes up with a better answer I might accept it. – DonielF Nov 17 '17 at 4:15

    Possible duplicate of Targum Pseudo-Jonathan in Rabbinic Literature – sabbahillel Nov 17 '17 at 12:33

    Perhaps the pseudo son of Uziel? – DanF Nov 17 '17 at 15:40

    @sabbahillel Read the question again. I very clearly write that I don’t want answers that would be valid over there, and that question clearly says it doesn’t want answers that would be valid here. How can it possibly be a duplicate? – DonielF Nov 17 '17 at 16:34
