Moffett and the Peshitta
brantana Wrote:Thanks Paul. Moffett's book has indeed been a great read so far, well written and well researched. How about approaching my question from another angle... Are there any very early COE source documents or other early Aramaic documents that unquestionably quote directly from the Peshitta? I figure that early believers using direct Peshitta wording, in/from multiple sources, would of course provide the same degree of certainty and documentation as early affirmation by the COE.

Any documentation on this route?


Hi Brantana,

Actually yes, Mar Aphrahat quoted from the Peshitta extensively - there are several posts on this forum regarding this topic you may find helpful.

In regards to the Diatesseron, the version was made from the 4 Gospels of the Peshitta version. The CoE used it as a popular reference work until at least the 11th century, and even made Arabic translations from it. The following post should be of help to you:
