Errors in the Peshitta OT from the Leiden instittute.
#38
You seem to judge our friend Dave with quite a heavy hand.

Is it not written: 'do not judge lest ye be judged by the same measure'

Dave has many valid points and has been quite helpful to me.

The modern state of Aramaic scholarship is so poor that any of us should be commended for trying to make heads or tails of the mess on our own accord, with our spare time.

I simply stated my views on ELS.

To me, the issue is even simpler than my abstract Kabbalah thing. If ELS were true then every word of the good book would have had to have been tailored to meet the needs of the code. Try writing an intricate parable like Jesus taught and write it with a strict amount of letters! Impossible. I think the guy who first came out with it believes that Aliens planted the message or something and discusses this in his new book.

But we all need to just chill and take this whole Aramaic thing with a grain of salt. The good book is just a set of symbols! And symbols are not perfect, even if Aramaic is the Original language of the text. Language has limits.
