On the "Western Five" extra-Peshitta books
ograabe Wrote:Dear Stephen

Thanks for your clear statements and recommendations. My understanding is growing. I need to do a lot more reading.

Am I correct then, that the Aramaic W-5 that we have are all translations from some Greek versions and no Aramaic originals are known to exist today?



Shlama Akhi Otto,

That is absolutely correct - the Aramaic W-5 are all translations from the Greek made by the SOC (Syrian Orthodox Church), the part of the Aramaic-speaking Church that lived in the Roman/Byzantine empire.
