Translations Compared: Eastern or Western?

I just received Herb Jahn's "The Aramaic New Covenant: a Literal Translation & Transliteration. It is the entire Western Peshitto text, with the W5 and all the Western readings, as Dave Bauscher has. I've added Jahn's NT readings to the others on the list and stats for the list in the above post.

His version is extreeeeeeemly literal and is like reading an interlinear text without the original language being present. It's useful, but it?s the Peshitto in form and content. He also re-orders the NT books, with John being the 1st book and Jude is placed in front of the letters of John. This version was produced in 1996, which makes it the earliest of the modern translations, after Lamsa's version.
