Authoritative English translation of the Aramaic (Syriac) Old and New Testaments
Clarifies difficult passages and offers insight on the Bible's message.
Now presented in a handsome new edition: the classicversion of The Holy Bible is translated directly from theAramaic (Syriac) text - the language of Jesus - by renowed scholar George M. Lamsa. The translator grew upin the Middle East speaking Aramaic, steeped in a culturewith customs, manners, and language almost identical to those in the time of Jesus. These resources are all brought to bear on his life's work of translating theAramaic Scriptures - called the Peshitta - into English.
