Bart Ehrman.

Thirdwoe Wrote:I don't know that The Aramaic that was spoken in Edessa, Babylon, and Northern Israel, was that far apart from each other...and since The Apostles certainly gave a copy of their writings to the Christians in each of these places...in Aramaic, then we have, in The Eastern Peshitta Scriptures, the only surviving witness of what those words were in Aramaic form...no matter which dialect was 1st.

Shamasha Paul Younan says that the Aramaic words as given in the Greek copies are identical to that of the Peshitta's Aramaic, so, if the Greek is a translation of the original form...it was what?s found in The Aramaic of The Peshitta!

Are we ok with saying that The Original Words of God, as spoken through The Apostles are lost in some other Aramaic dialect copy/copies that no longer exist? I'm not...Maybe we don?t have all the words that God wanted us to have?

But how do we know for certain that The Peshitta Text is a version (not translation) of another Aramaic dialect? Syria and Northern Israel are right next to each other on the map...and many Syrians crossed over the border to see and hear Jesus preach in the Galilee. In fact ALL Syria heard about Jesus and what He was teaching up there, next door (Matt 4:24)...and according to Church tradition, The King of Edessa wrote to Jesus, asking Him to come heal him...and Jesus is said to have written him back. It seems to me that there wasn?t much difference in the lingo...nothing that needed to be translated much anyway, though we see some of that with the Judean vs Galilean words in some places.

I say, we have the real deal with The Eastern Aramaic Peshitta text, as close as you can get to the Autographs themselves, which have not been seen since the early centuries A.D. if they still exist someplace.

Chuck, I absolutely positively agree with you 100%, the Eastern Aramaic PeshittA is as close as we have if not an exact copy/version of the Apostolic writings.
For any one that may still be in doubt of the Eastern PeshittA's Aramaic being that of the 1st century they should read Paul Younan's point about this @: <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://www.peshitta.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3181&p=19519#p19519">viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3181&p=19519#p19519</a><!-- l -->

So it is long over dew, according to the evidence, for people to either believe that the Eastern Aramaic Text's origins date back to the 1st Century or bring forth evidence showing that it does not, instead of continuing to speculate conjectures based off of a bunch of hoopla! Well we be waiting for any eventual proof to backup the speculation that the Eastern PeshittA's Aramaic is not that of the 1st Century. And please keep in mind that we have already heard the hoopla, enough already with such, simply bring forth the evidence in which such a claim is based. <!-- s:whaasup: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/whaasup.gif" alt=":whaasup:" title="Whaasup" /><!-- s:whaasup: --> ?
