Seeking insight on Janet Magiera's Messianic Aramaic NT
Seeker1 Wrote:Also -- switching topics slightly -- it was helpful hearing that Janet and certain others are "of the Lamsa tradition," so to speak. Would it be too much to ask for someone to spell out, basically, what are all the Aramaic translations out there and which ones are coming from certain "streams." I'd especially appreciate knowing any particular beliefs that might set certain streams or translators apart from others. (Not to disparage but for awareness' sake.) Since I don't know Aramaic at all and would be depending on the translator, it'd be helpful for me to know what particular angle each translator is coming from. ...not that anyone would intentionally bias a translation, but it seems it could almost be very difficult *not* to do so at least to a small extent as allowed with the choice of meanings for given words.

Thanks for all the help.


Hi NKelley, glad to see you are interested in the PeshittA. As for wanting to know of others opinions on the various english translations of the Eastern Peshitta and western peshitto you can read through the following threads. Some may be a bit long and sometimes of topic of what you want to know but you can skim through them and focus on the parts that speak of the translations -
