The Antioch Bible - Didem - 10-27-2012

OK I just discovered this new Peshitta translation and get this: it's the ENTIRE Peshitta Bible, i.e. Old AND New Testaments!!!

It's not complete yet but publication starts this year. Subscriptions and orders:

Translation sample of Isaiah: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... b_Subs.pdf</a><!-- m -->

That is extremely expensive but sounds interesting!

Re: The Antioch Bible - Burning one - 10-27-2012

a new translation of both testaments makes it worth the price! also, the Isaiah pdf makes me think it is parallel like the AENT - so that would be EVEN BETTER. one thing i'd like to know is if this is Eastern or Western NT....

Yes it's the text and translation.

The price isn't surprising cause the Greek primacy centric NT scholarship world isn't too interested in funding Aramaic studies.

The NT is definitely the western text (note the Serto script). But still, it's about time we got a scholarly translation, the variants from the eastern text will probably be documented in the footnotes. The Peshitta Institute at Leiden University in the Netherlands is still working on their annotated translation (also of the entire Peshitta Bible) called "The Bible of Edessa". I expect them to use the western NT text as well, but still looking forward to that in the coming years:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... dessa.html</a><!-- m -->

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... DFE3E79E5D</a><!-- m -->

Now the COE just needs to translate their text.
