What is wrong with the Bauscher codes?
No Aramaic patristic writer (at least eastern) that I'm aware of (Aphrahat, Narsai, Ephrem, etc.) makes reference to the story of the woman caught in adultery. I would imagine it would have caught someone's attention if in fact this existed in any Aramaic text. Unless of course Dave's point was that the ball was dropped in the 1st or 2nd century.

But then again, it makes one wonder why Tatian's Diatesseron (compiled from the Peshitta) didn't contain it.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:Only 56 verses in the canonical Gospels do not have a counterpart in the Diatessaron, mostly the genealogies and the pericope adulterae.

The Diatesseron was of course created around 150ad.

And then the question becomes: how and when did it make it back into the text? No manuscript contains it. Only the later versions like the 1891 Mosul Text (created by the Chaldean Catholic Church) contains it, but with the explanation that it was not originally there.
