If I understand first information given at the begining you have translated part of the new testament from the greek into aram??en ?
Is there NO MANUSCRIPTS FOUND IN THE ORIGINAL ARAMAIQUE LANGUAGE?
Hi Christiane,

The Peshitta that is used on this site is from the original Aramaic, and not from a Greek translation.

Just like Greek manuscripts, they were stored at safe places and found by researchers.
at <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.dukhrana.com">www.dukhrana.com</a><!-- w --> you can find more info about old manuscripts.

Note that there is no original source of the NT / OT anywhere.
So we always deal with copies from which the Aramaic source, seems to be very authentic.
We have
Khaboris manuscript and
Mingana 148 manuscript
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://vmr.bham.ac.uk/Collections/Mingana/Syriac_148/Page_268/viewer/">http://vmr.bham.ac.uk/Collections/Minga ... 68/viewer/</a><!-- m -->
that represent 22 books Peshitta.

Instead of downloading Mingana 148 page by page, I have the manuscript compressed in one file.
If anybody likes to have the file,
please contact me.

Ivan.
