Peshitta NT quotes from Peshitta Tanakh
If you compare the quote from the Torah in Mark 10:7-8 (A man shall leave his father and mother and they shall become one flesh) in the Peshitta NT with the Peshitta Tanakh and Targumim Onkelos (and LXX an MT if you want), the quote from the Peshitta NT is IDENTICAL, letter for letter, with the Peshitta Tanakh. Yeshua must therefore be quoting from the Peshitta Tanakh (both are in Syriac), and not even quoting from Targum Onkelos, or Targum Pseudo-Yonatan, as might be expected. This is very interesting. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
Is anyone aware of any studies showing how OT quotes in the NT compare with the Peshitta Tanakh?
