Elymas or Etoimas?
Sami Rabia Wrote:Shlama Jeremy.

I am sure you know Dukhrana, the Peshitta tool gives you the Aramaic text, Eastern and Western, 5 different Greek versions along with the Latin Vulgate and English translations of the Peshitto. It is not perfectly set up for the task yet, because the texts are critical editions anyway. But let me see what I can find online.

It would be a great undertaking, but it would be a great thing to do and we have some of the tools we need to do it. If I werent pre-occupied with something else I would do it myself, but I feel that if we ever want to get to the bottom of the issue we will need all of our evidences gathered together and discussed systematically and comprehensively.

My goal would be to show that there is no reasonable case against Peshitta Primacy, but that the case for it is strong enough to vindicate those who believe it as being reasonable and respectable.


Shlama akhi,

yes, Dukhrana is a blessed tool indeed!! i spend much of my time there cross-referencing and double-checking and having too much fun altogether! <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: -->

my time and energy are greatly focused on other things at the moment, as well, but it would be helpful for all who are interested to put our heads together and see what we could come up with.

and as for being reasonable and respectable -- do we have to be???? <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->

seriously, tho, every bit would indeed help. i had recently spent some concerted effort trying to get through to a poster over at Bible Scholars Forums who is absolutely convinced he had all the necessary evidence to put out the Peshitta Primacy fires i had going there. if you're interested, his accusations against it - and my refutations - can be found at the following thread:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... 20&start=0</a><!-- m -->

his posts are authored by "Greek Student" - and he has others on the bigger forum itself where i also attempted refutations. he's been quiet for awhile, tho....but that is the most effort i've seen so far to try to disprove the veracity of the Peshitta Primacy arguments. so far none of his arguments seemed to hold any water, at least from my perspective. the majority of his accusations fell in the realm of Greek loan-words in the Peshitta, which is not a textually viable point of argument, if we're honest.

Chayim b'Moshiach,
