Son of Peace
#1
Shlama Akhay,

In the Greek versions of Luke, we read:

Quote:And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
(Luke 10:6)

The Aramaic "Bar Shlama" literally means "son of peace", but idiomatically this is an expression which means "harmony" or "agreement," in other words, the opposite of contention.

But since the Greek literally translates "son of peace", this is evidence that it was translated from an Aramaic original. Zorba rendered the phrase literally because he did not understand its idiomatic meaning.
