The New Testament Peshitta and Peshitto
Ivan Ostapyuk Wrote:Therefore, I think that the Peshitto is not translation from a Greek text but both
Peshitta and Peshitto originate from the same text.

That is true only if you are talking about the original 22 books (minus the story of the woman taken in adultery in John 8, by the way-it's not in the original Eastern Text either)

Quote:The question is Peshitta or Peshitto is closer to the original or maybe who is the original?

The 22-book Peshitta is definitely the original.

Quote:Next, what about 5 more books in the Peshitto. Are they the original, or translated from a Greek text or unknown?

Until we find some very early Aramaic texts that pre-date the Greek texts somewhere we'd do just as good for the most part to study these 5 books in Greek. I make exception here and there--for instance, comparing Jude 23 in the Peshitto and the Greek is rather interesting. Also Peshitto Revelation has Hebraic words such as 'menorah'-Aleph and Tau'-'Sheol'-'ephod'-etc.
In my opinion it would be a great occasion for celebration of scholars worldwide if a Semitic Apocalypse were found that pre-dated the Greek. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Quote:Are these 5 books deducted from Peshitta or
added to the Peshitto?

I suppose you could look at it either way. The ancient Church of the East did not accept them and the Syrian Orthodox Church did.

Quote:What about Crawford manuscript comparing to the Peshitto book of Revelation.
Which text is more credible?

I can't remember why James Trimm, Steve Caruso and others find it so intriguing. You'll have to ask somebody that has really delved into Crawford heavily. I haven't.

Quote:And the question the those who abide in 22 books canon. What is Your relation to the 27 books canon? do Your consider these 5 more books inspired Word of
God or something doubtful?

I think we'll just have to let them stand by their own merit verse by verse. Many books show earmarks of inspiration here and there, but to just open the floodgates wide and let them all into a fixed canon would be crazy. There's no reason to discourage anyone from studying the 'Western 5' in any language I don't suppose. The COE doesn't discourage the reading of Revelation akhan Paul tells us.

Quote:Maybe this topic was discussed before, then just redirect me.
Better if answers are supported by facts.

I wish everyone in the entire world who seeks this kind of information would go to the Scholarly Reprints website and purchase William Norton's book. Here are some excerps that I've posted from it on the forum.
