Khabouris Discoveries
Quote:Much better. I do believe there could have been a hebrew/aramaic text behind this, at least the thought patterns are there, but would I believe that the current peshitta text is the original? No, it seems to follow the greek too much. At least from what this monolinguist can tell. The Holy Spirit teaches us all things, so I gotta pay attention when He shows me something.

Hi Dave:
Are you saying that you cannot read Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic? Is this what you mean by monolinguist.

So far your focus has been on English readability. I suggest that you begin to hack through Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew, or you can only guess at what is being said in the text. You are completely dependent upon another's translation/version. It's impossible to make any evaluation of the text from that vantage point.

Most of us are just scratching the surface anyway. However, it's a breakthrough to be able to read a word and look it up yourself. I use the Aramaic-English Lexicon and Concordance regularly.

There are very few people plugged into that can read or speak either Hebrew or Aramaic fluently. Paul 's mother tongue is Aramaic and he's a treasure to all of us here. Most, if they're honest will admit that they are just linguist hackers like me. <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: -->

All the best in your studies,
