Comparison of Peshitta and "Old Syriac" Gospels
If you are interested in comparing how the Peshitta differs from the "Old Syriac" Gospels, I have produced a book which compares these in a readable and very accessible format. The Greek of Scrivener's text, which is essentially that of Codex Bezae, the Peshitta, and the Sinaiticus and Curetonian Gospels, are shown compared verse-by-verse throughout the gospels. The Aramaic text is shown in Hebrew square characters because this will probably make the book more accessible. Also, colour is used to illustrate the differences between the Peshitta and the Old Syriac texts, and between the two Old Syriac texts themselves. There are a lot of differences between the Old Syriac texts themselves!
This book will be indispensable for those who want to explore the Peshitta more fully and compare it with the Old Scratch, and verify the many things stated about the Old Scratch on this forum.
The book is available on Lulu. There is a black & white version:
