So what difference does Aramaic primacy really make?
Greek New Testament Flaws.

According to Greek scholars Kurt Aland and Barbara Aland (The Text of the New Testament, 2ndEdition, William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, Grand Rapids, MI, 1989, page 29), almost forty percent of the verses in the Greek New Testament documents are significantly uncertain with at least two or more major words being different among the various Grreek versions. In many cases whole verses or important parts of verses are missing. That doesn't even count the many important differences that depend on single words. The addition of a single sigma in Luke 2:14 in the Alexandrian (Minority) Greek Text significantly and theologically changes the message of the Angels!

To make matters worse, the faulty Alexandrian Greek Text is now used for all popular modern English versions except the NKJV (which uses the superior Byzantine (Majority) Greek Text).

In sharp contrast, the 22 books of the Peshitta have been transmitted with few if any errors in the original Aramaic Text of which the New Testament was composed by the Aramaic-speaking Apostles and Jewish followers of Jesus. This superiority of the Peshitta text has been well demonstrated on this forum and in several excellent books by forum members and others.

Why would anyone want to study variable English translations of uncertain and faulty Greek translation versions that were originally written in Aramaic when we can study the original text and excellent translations of that text?
