Translations Compared: Eastern or Western?
Yea, Mic, that is his English translation of a source/sources text/texts...but if you have the hard copy check the front in the intro and I think he says which edition/editions he used for his translation. Then you might be able to find out how old they are.

The postscripts could have been added by a later scribe, or were introduced by the scribe who made the original copy, where the source text didn't have them.

The Khabouris Codex 900-1100 A.D. has similar postscripts, and if the scribe copied the postscripts along with the main text, then they seem to go back at least to the middle of the 4th century, where the source text is said to have been copied from an even earlier source...but since we can't see it, we can't be certain if the postscripts are present there or not.

Here are some translations in English of what is found in the postscripts of the Khabouris.

Thanks to Jeremy (The Burning One) for these.
