"Master YHWH" and "I AM"s in the Peshitta
The Greek manuscripts have a mistranslation in Mt 26:6 (paralleled in Mk 14:3), leading to a contradiction with social customs of the time and Lev 13:45-46. Shimon was a potter, not a leper. Lepers didn't entertain houseguests back then per Lev 13:45-46, but potters/jar makers did.

From the Aramaic:
And when Yeshua was in Beth-Aniya, in the house of Shimon the potter, a woman approached him who had with her an alabaster vase of ointment which was a very precious perfume, and she poured it upon the head of Yeshua while he was reclining. And his talmida [students] saw and it displeased them?.

Granted, one could try to save the Greek mistranslation by supposing that Simon was an _ex_-leper who continued to be called-- slanderously-- 'Simon the Leper,' just as Matthew was called in Mt 10:3, "Mattai the tax-collector."

?: Were any blind men Jesus healed called "X the blind man" after having been healed? Were any demoniacs Jesus healed called "Y the demoniac" after the demons were cast out?
