Mari/P.E.A.C.E. (Matthew's Gospel) Review
Shlama Friends,

Last night, our Akhi Andrew Gabriel Roth, e-mailed me a copy of Matthew's gospel, along with all of it's footnotes and study notes.

WOW! That's my first really pertinent comment!

I feel wholly inadequate to review even the first Book of a work of this spiritual magnitude.

First, I want to speak about something that I consider to be a very important issue.

For those of you who are not really into Biblical End Times eschatology, please indulge me here.

I want to say that it's my belief that Our Sovereign Elohim ('God') gave this work into the hands of A JEW to complete.

I want us all to REALLY think on this. It was the Jews who first gave us the New Covenant, and now here in this rather dark time on our little blue planet, God has chosen another Jew to bring us the Good News of Messiah, in a form that we can ALL understand, and that we can all love.

This (to the best of my knowledge) is the 10th Syriac to English translation of either the Eastern Peshitta, or the Western Peshitto.

And it's only the second complete Eastern Peshitta New Covenant published in the last 70 YEARS !

But I think that The Father saved it for this time, that is so near to The End of Days. I honestly do.

In a kind of perfect redemptive Way of doing things, this is the nearest that we are ever going to get to a PERFECT TRANSLATION of the Eastern Peshitta.

The thing that struck me with the most force, is that this is an imminently READABLE translation.

How long have we looked for this? Some of us have looked for it for literally YEARS.

For anyone that knows even a little transliterated Syriac, Mari/P.E.A.C.E. is very easily understood, and there are are a few words that might not have been read in any New Covenant for perhaps over 2,000 years now (unless of course, your native tongue is Syriac).

The Father's Name is "Master YHWH", and the Son's Name is "Y'shua".

I feel very comfortable with both of these as Names.

The footnotes and study notes are many, and I barely had the time to just touch even the surface there.

There is 'a tenderness' to this translation that I can't fully comprehend, nor describe with any words from the English language.

Andrew nailed it, you FEEL this translation, and it can take you through a very ancient Door, that perhaps was not even meant to be opened until this time.

That's the mystic part of myself speaking, but I honestly feel an Ancientness from this text, but yet at the same time, a fresh and vibrant and completely ALIVE version of Matthew's Good News.

I can also feel all of the work that has gone into just this one Book alone. And it's almost unbelievable how GOOD that it turned out.

Not that Andrew doesn't have "the Right Stuff", he obviously DOES have it powerfully, but we're talking about walking up a pretty much 2,000 year old hill here, with ALL of "the collective baggage" that that brings with it.

But YHWH Always works things out in His Perfect Time, and I have nothing but great things to say about Andrew, and his publishing partner, Baruch.

I wish to say 'Thank You Both' for allowing me to write this review. I'm a broken man in many ways, but I always KNEW that you could pull this off.

I knew it a year ago, when I wrote that Magiera review, and here we are getting closer, and closer, to publication.

That's frankly the only negative thing that I have to say, is that we ALL cannot buy a copy of Mari/P.E.A.C.E. tomorrow morning!!

Andrew, if I heard you correctly, you guys have maybe another few weeks or so to go, and it could be August, just as easily as in what's left of July?

Is that kind of what I heard you say? Apologies if it is not, and just mark me "excited", and I heard wrong from reading through too much Joy! <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: -->

Friends, if YOU want to read Messiah's Words in a translation that will uphold YOUR FAITH, you need to buy a copy of Mari/P.E.A.C.E., as soon as you can!

Thank you Andrew!

Your Brother in Messiah, Albion
