Item description for The Aramaic Gospels and Acts by Joseph Pashka...
Overview It is astonishing in our day and age how difficult it has been to obtain the Gospels presented in the Aramaic Language-until now. This edition of The Aramaic Gospels and Acts finally presents the traditional Aramaic text and an English translation in an affordable manner. The oldest Aramaic translations of the original Greek Gospels were finally standardized sometime in the third or fourth century as the version known as the Peshitta. The Syriac-Aramaic Peshitta version has been regarded as the standard version ever since, and is the same text presented here in the old Estrangelo letters. The English translation is linguistically conservative yet highly readable. Students of scriptural study and interested readers alike will find this edition well worth the wait.

I like this book so much! Although I don't read Syriac,Joseph Pashka's English translation is very simple yet much powerfull than NIV or NRSV. I compared with UBS GNT,I think he used traditonal Syrian Orthodox Church's text. Many years ago,I tried to buy Syriac version of the NT,but I couldn't buy,because it is too expensive in UBS website I want to say Thank you so much to the Author Joseph Pashka, making wonderful translation! May Our Lord Bless you!

A great book! I like how each Aramaic verse is followed by the English translation right under it. I'm back buying one for my friend.

I liked this book. It is not a book about Aramaic, it IS the Aramaic. It's very complete and a great resource for those interested in the original Gospels.
