Greetings Again!

Here's something we could discuss for a bit, if you like.

Take a look at John 12:1

In the Aramaic text does it literally say,

"...before the six days of the Passover..."

or must it be translated like below, which is seen in all the English translations I've seen.

"...six days before the Passover..."

Also take a look at the way the Greek has it worded.

Shlama,
Chuck

Many Thanks!

I feel the word order in the Aramaic can work as we see popularly translated, but I translated it literally in my own work because of my lean to that style, similarly to as you first suggest. We know from the other synoptic accounts that this was around 2 days *before* Passover. Thus, no meaning is changed from the popular rendering, ultimately, except for a very minor detail that could be brought forth that would be a bit more Hebraic in nature, as Ronen shared from Deuteronomy 16:8, even though other verses say it lasted for seven days.
