Shlama,

in Acts 13:6 the Peshitta contains the reading of a name as:

[font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]0mw4rb[/font]

this is somewhat different than how the Greek reads with Bar-iesus. how did we get from Barshuma to Bar-iesus? <!-- s:dontgetit: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/dontgetit.gif" alt=":dontgetit:" title="Dont Get It" /><!-- s:dontgetit: -->

is the answer a simple misreading of [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]0mw4[/font] wrongly as [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)](w4y[/font]?

any clarification would be appreciated. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
