What date are the Peshitta documents?
The Khabouris Codex was copied from A SECOND CENTURY MS of the P'shitta New Testament.

NOT "a fourth century manuscript".

Since Stephen Silver is the best Khabouris scholar on this list, let's ask HIM.

Khabouris is actually a 12th century manuscript which, according to its scribe, was copied from a 4th century manuscript (pre AD 360).
The other dates are correct. There are several other 5th century Peshitta mss. as well. These Peshitta mss. agree extremely closely with each other; far more closely than any two Greek manuscripts agree together. There are several hundred Peshitta mss., many of which can be dated from the 5th, 6th,7th and 8th centuries.
