Peshitta/o Old Testament
Gentile Wrote:I have to say that I am quite disappointed about the apparent disinterest in the Peshitta Tanakh. I think it is probably the best version of the OT around given the flaws in the Masoretic Text and the fact that the Septuagint isn't in its original 'Semetic' tongue therby limiting possible word meanings. I know most Peshitta websites focus in on the NT but lets not forget what came first and what the Messiah quoted from! <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->

Paul has posted some links which try to begin to address this before, but from what I have read the origins of the various books within the peshitta OT may be diverse (not to mention lost in history perhaps).

I might have a slightly different take on the importance of the primacy of the peshitta NT than others here. For me is it very ironic that we western Christians can at times spend SO much effort trying to extract the exact menaing of of a particular word in ancient greek, only to now find out that it is only a translation anyway.
Perhaps the message is that we need to look at the message.
