On the "Western Five" extra-Peshitta books
Paul Younan Wrote:Shlama Andrej,

We respect that other branches of "Christendom" accept them as canonical. Like we respect that even others consider books like the Epistle to Clement to be canonical.

Other Aramaic churches, exclusively in the western empire, eventually translated them from Greek and gradually began to make use of them in other versions they created. Not all revised their copies of the Peshitta. Some created new versions with varying reception and rejection, others added them to the end with explanations of their origin.


Still wondering; the crawford codex (which includes the 5) does not seem to be a Greek translation at all.
It's a pity that these documents do not have the respect they deserve.
