Peshitta-Peshitto variants
#7
Thanks, Paul.

I am also posting this information here so that people can acknowledge the importance of Peshitta.

From Page 137 to 183 (William Norton's Book), we see Peshitto-Syriac Translation of Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, and 1 John.

In Page 139 (Hebrews 2:9) on Origen's comment about this verse.

(a) Ver. 9. Instead of the words rendered, " by the gracious favour of God," other Syriac manuscripts have two variations. The Greek does not seem to be correct,
because the exaltation of Christ did not determine the object of his death. A reading older than the time of the Nestorians, was mentioned by Origen, who died about
A.D. 254. It is, "For he, apart from Godhead." Some Nestorians adopted this reading. The Jacobites seem to have altered the position of " God," to suit their creed. They
have in their copies,?" He, God, in his gracious favour, tasted death." The Peshito edited for the B. and F. Bible Society, partly by Dr. Buchanan, and partly by Dr. Lee,
and which is founded on some ancient manuscripts, has the reading given above, which differs from that of the Jacobites only in the position of the word " God."

As you known Origen live from late 2nd century to mid 3rd century (185 AD - 254 AD). Origen died 132 years before Nestorius (386 AD - 451 AD) was born. So the idea that Hebrews 2:9 is a Nestorian modification to Western manuscripts is wrong.
