In accordance with Mr. Ostapyuk's wishes I have the link here in this forum:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->

Free book proving the Greek NT is a copy of the Peshitta. Compiles the best proofs from this forums and many other sources, with original stuff thrown in and great collaborations with others.

Very friendly easy-to-read format. You do not have to be a linguistic expert.

If the link doesn't work, you could always go to Google and search for peshitta. The site is number 7 <!-- s8) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8) -->
Shlama, akhi Chris
First of all my correct last name is Ostapyuk.
Of course, I have suggestions for Your website.
1) It is good to include the Peshitta text (in Estrangelo script) as in e.g <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> . For me this text is of unknown origin, maybe some enthusiast manually typed with possible mistakes. But, I am attracted to it because it is in Estrangelo script which is the earliest known Christian Aramaic script. As this script covered large territory, it may be possible for the Apostles to write in this script.
2) Also the qumran caves script. Good website <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> . This kind of script was used around the times of Jesus by the Jews, most probably the Apostles wrote in this script. A while ago I did a program that converted the Estrangelo letters into this type of Ashuri. The text looked touching, maybe such was the original look of the New Testament, but later I lost it. If You would put the Ashuri script Peshitta in Your website, it will be very important and attractive to the people.
3) I believe that topic <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="">viewtopic.php?t=855</a><!-- l --> is very important to be covered.
4) As You noticed I am more linguistic than theological person. I understand more or less about 20 languages. The topics about languages study that I posted in Aramaic primacy and General sections are of big importance to me. Before I planned to do a business out of it but later change mind and decided to let them serve to the glory of God. I kept them in secret but now I posted them. Yet nobody, except bar khela, appreciated them. I believe that people not get it for it is something strange for them. You may encourage people to study Aramaic of the Peshitta. This is easy, although I myself not long ago started to study this language. This language is more important to me than Hebrew and Greek taken together.
5) Very good that You included website of Andrew Gabriel Roth. Why don't You include <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- w --> and the website of Rev. David Bauscher ?

Also, I want to mention here the golden words of akhi Andrew Gabriel Roth : "I believe that we are united on this forum by a love of the Aramaic language and the orignal Aramaic NT we call Peshitta. Theology is a secondary concern and should be downplayed as much as possible here. I have certainly many different beliefs from most here, but I respect everyone. "
6) The audio Peshitta. Jesus was teaching people, talked to them and people listened. Now the people want to listen also. The Peshitta has to talk. We need to know the pronunciation of Aramaic, something common. I do care about the language. I wish Your website to have The Audio Peshitta.
7) Also, I wish You to have Aramaic online dictionary with the ancient pronunciations... and ... and... a lot I have to say about linguistics.
God bless Your website, in the allmighty name of Jesus.
Wow you have lots of suggestions. I shall copy your post to a txt file on my desktop, my "to do" pile. I am at present working on getting the book published in the first edition and working on a project for my secular studies, about the effects of COX-2 selective non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs... When I have time I consider many of your suggestions.



p.s. I understand the frustration that it may seem that Peshitta primacy on the 'net is a sluggish process. The problem is we all have jobs and lives etc and can't do all that we want. For instance, when I first knew of Peshitta primacy and found this site, I looked so hard for a book that had many many proofs collected which was free, that I may learn off it. I found none, so ended up making my own. One little problem solved <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/wink1.gif" alt="Wink" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink --> The Lord perhaps blesses us by giving us time and passion to do what little we can do while having busy lives.
