Your Favorite Translation (Everyone Welcome)

Thank you for your great replies. I really appreciate you answering soo swiftly!
A feww days ago I ordered Lamsa's Bible. How's it different? What is your view on this text?

Also, this is the first time I heard of "Peshitta". I googled "aramaic bible" and got this great forum! How is the Peshitta different from the Bible such as KJV, NIV, ect.? From what I researched so far, some of the wording is different however, the message is still basically the same. Do you agree? Some say the Peshitta is heretical.

Like I said. I'm just scratching the surface of these scriptures. I believe God has really put it in my heart to search deeply into His Word.
Where can I learn aramaic writing and speach?

In God,
Shalom Jagregoire.
I personally use Rev. David Bauscher's AEINT. I haven't used or seen The Way International's though, so I can't say which one I prefer. I do know that I have really enjoyed Mr. Bauscher's version. It is very helpful and has extensive notes on Peshitta primacy and translation.
The Peshitta has some significant differences from the Greek texts, but overall they're very similar. I think I heard a stat on here once that the Greek majority text agrees with the Peshitta 80 some odd percent of the time.
However, I think Peshitta study is important because even what seems like an insignificant difference can be very important in the realm of Biblical study. Especially from the Messianic Jewish perspective, which I am from, because Judaism traditionally puts an emphasis on every single word and even the spelling of the words of Scripture.
I'm not sure where you can learn Aramaic. When I started studying I had already spent a few years studying Hebrew, so I had a basic foundation in a closely related Semitic language, so it's been fairly easy for me in as far as I've gone.

I hope this helps. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy.gif" alt="Big Grin" title="Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
