book of Hebrews: better from Greek, or Aramaic?
Do you think the sense of John 14:6 is best rendered with:
"I am the Way the Truth and the Life"?
"I AM the Way the Truth and the Life"?
“I AM the true and living Way"?

Do you think John 14:6 originally had:
"my Father"?
"the Father"?

Both the Peshitta and the by-A.D. 175 Diatessaron have "my Father."

John 14:6 - Jesus said to him,
“I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life.
No one comes to my Father except through Me.
the Way, the Truth and the Life - these words can also be translated as: 'I am the true and living Way', because here we use a figure of speech called: 'hendiadys', in this case actually: hendiatris because two resp. three nouns are used to indicate one 'business'. It is a figure of speech that is common in OT and NT. In the NT, for example, also in Jh. 1:9, 14, 17, Jh. 6:32 and Jh. 15:1.
my Father - this is the reading of the Aramean Peshitta. The reading of the Greek NA28, MHT and TR reads: 'the Father'.

Diatessaron 45:34
Jesus said unto him,
I am the way, and the truth, and the life:
and no man cometh unto my Father, but through me.

John 14:6
(Murdock) Jesus said to him:
I am [Aramaic: ana ana: I I: I AM] the way, and truth, and life:
no one cometh unto my Father, but by me.
(Lamsa) Jesus said to him,
I am the way, and the truth, and the life;
no man comes to my Father except by me.
(KJV) Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
