Peshitta – or: The New Testament was Written in Aramaic

with one comment

Das Neue Testament wurde vom ursprünglichen Original in Aramäischer Sprache auf Griechisch übersetzt – leider mit vielen Fehlern!
The New Testament, originally written in Aramaic, was later translated into Greek – unfortunately with many mistakes.

(Copied from a website in 2013)
Dr Lamsa was a member of the Assyrian Church of the East. He was a strong advocate of one of that Church’s beliefs: Peshitta primacy (a form of Aramaic primacy). His hypothesis was that for the New Testament, the Aramaic Peshitta was the original text, and the Greek versions were translated from it. In support of this, he claimed that Aramaic was the language of Jesus, His Disciples and the earliest Christians, including the authors of the Bible.
Lamsa further claimed that while most of the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, the original was lost and the present Hebrew version, the Masoretic text, was corrupted, and possibly retranslated from the Peshitta OT (a very old Aramaic version of the Old Testament).
Lamsa produced his own English translation of the entire Judeo-Christian Bible in the form of The Holy Bible from Ancient Eastern Manuscripts, more commonly known as the Lamsa Bible, freely available online on this website, and for purchase in hardcopy.

Go to Lamsa Bible Online – English Peshitta Translation (NT):

Go to the Aramaic Peshitta:

I can’t find this .pdf file on the web anymore. Sorry. (7-JAN-2015)

BTW: Was it a camel or a rope? Read Matthew 19:24 in your bible and in the Lamsa version.
Which translation makes more sense?

  1. Be very careful with the Lamsa bible because lamsa was not even a believer…and he was involved in occult influences…www.chick.com/ask/articles/lamsa.asp
    It’s been made popular by the Hebrew roots movement….and another recent heretic and false teacher Andrew Gabriel Roth…who has followed in his footsteps and “translated” the New Testament from Aramaic.too many people believe that the peshitta copy came before the Greek it was in fact written after, and make themselves rich tricking innocent/ignorant Christians with their “”new revelations”….
