The bandages that wrapped Jesus' head
Hello everyone-

Well, once again, if a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, I must be one of the most dangerous people on the planet.

John 20: 7 (RSV):

[7] and the napkin, which had been on his head, not lying with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself.

PY's Interlinear:

[7] - and the burial cloth - that - which been wrapped - had - around his head - not - with - the linen - but - being folded - and placed - aside - in a certain - place -
PY, especially:

Is there anything of interest in the Peshitta Translation here - anything? There is in the Greek, at least from Joe Atwill (Caesar's Messiah, ISBN 978-1461096405). Consider what he says:

"At this point, not "Peter" but "Simon Peter" arrives and is the first person to actually enter the tomb and, once inside, sees "the linen clothes lying" and the soudarian (endnote 111), on three consecutive lines. The soudarian was a funeral cloth used by Romans - not by Jews"

The word "soudarian" has a note to it and it reads:

endnote 111: "of note is the fact that the word the author uses for this handkerchief, "soudarian," is one of the few words in the New Testament that is neither Hebrew nor Greek, being of Latin origin."

Uh-Oh...This is what sends me to the bookstacks. Any ideas from a Peshitta Perspective on this one?

Thanks all,
