Word play in aramaic and syriac
#1
Shlama?

First I?ll introduce myself, because I?m a new member.
I come from Switzerland, my mother tongue?s French (and English too, but? not so easily ^^).
I read the Aramaic, the syriac, the Greek (but not better than English lol)?
Aramaic primacist although between the Peshitta and Bezae D05 I?m not sure that the Peshitta is the oldest version?

I want to share a good question with you about the wordplays in Aramaic? A good example is in Luke 3:8. [?] do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham for our father,' for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham. There?s a possibility (and more than a possibility) that John said : mn ?lyn ?bny? mshkH ?lh? lmqwm bny? l?brhm. We see the wordplay benaya (children) and avnaya (stones)? that we don?t find in peshitta, The peshitta reads ?men haleyn kepha meshkaH alaha lamqamo bnaya lavraham.?. We find there kepha?

The question is: why the peshitta has not this wordplay?. I?ve maybe a begin of answer: John who speaks is a Judean ant not a Galilean (Mariam came in the Judas? mountains when she visited Elishbea?), and his dialect is influenced by the Hebrew (unlike Galilean, dialect of ?the Galilee of the gentile?) ?ben?.
It?s not the only supposed wordplay, but it?s the most visible.
