The earliest most original gospel ie. the Peshitta
jookieapc Wrote:Thanks so much for the information you provided here Paul.

I actually forgot about this thread after some travels and then a google search of the same question again brought me back here again.

So if I wanted to find the most authentic Peshitta then this is the best available <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> ?

Do you know where the oldest surviving Peshitta is kept? If so, are there any differences between the one sold at assyrianmarket and the oldest source? I'm sure I saw a photo of a very old Peshitta stored in a museum somewhere.


Hi Ben:
The Khabouris Codex was sold to a private collector, James S. Melikian, in June 2008, at Sotheby's auction in London England. Just prior to the sale, the Khabouris Codex was on display in Queensborough Art Gallery in New York and then in the Phoenix Art Gallery, Arizona.

The complete transcription and pictures are available on-line at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> and are in PDF format for free download from the Khabouris Page. The Peshitta Page makes use of Dr. George Kiraz' Sedra III database. Lars Lindgren has created a user friendly interface to present a verse by verse comparative alignment of the Khabouris Codex and the UBS 1905 Peshitta text. Also, a complete analysis of every word in the verse is facilitated. (lexical-concordance and grammatical parsing) Enjoy! <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
