Aramaic Odes of Solomon
#26
Hi Mike,

I can't really answer for the codes, that's our brother Dave's realm...but I wanted to clarify something, if I may:

Mike Wrote:But the Eastern Peshitta just recently accepted them into their canon.

These five books have never been included in the eastern canon. It is my understanding that the official position of the Church of the East is that the canon has been closed since the originals were received, is not open now, and will not be open in the future.

That being said, most printed copies of the eastern text include these five books. There are notes before the text of each book starts that these aren't part of the original Peshitta.

These books are included in modern printed copies for the benefit of those Aramaic-speaking people who belong to the Chaldean Catholic Church, which is an offshoot of the Church of the East that accepted Papal authority in the 16th century. They are communion with the Latin Rite within the Catholic Church, therefore they recognize these 5 books as inspired scripture.

Despite the fact that these books do not have "canonical" status within the traditional (non-Chaldean) branch of the Church of the East, members of the faithful are encouraged to read them, privately at home, for their own edification. These 5 books are considered "pious", but not at the level of "scripture."

They are not used during the service, and they are not part of the liturgical readings.

Take care!
