Release Date: 2015-06-15
Genre: Religion

This is a translation (8th edition-2013) of The Aramaic New Testament (Aramaic was the language of Jesus and his countrymen of 1st century Israel) in a literal English prose translation of The Peshitta New Testament. A translation of the Psalms & Proverbs from the ancient Peshitta OT Version is included at the end. Aramaic was the language of the Jews in Israel, the Middle East and in Europe from the 6th century BC and afterward until the Muslim conquests of the 7th century AD. This translation is derived from the author's Aramaic-English Interlinear New Testament and The Psalms & Proverbs interlinear. Aramaic was used in Mel Gibson's film "The Passion of the Christ" to make the film as realistic and accurate as possible. This New Testament will surprise and thrill the reader with its power and inspiration coming from the words of "Yeshua" ("Jesus" in ancient Aramaic) as He originally spoke them, in a literal and readable English rendering. 389 pages paperback in Large Print.

The First Century Aramaic Bible in Plain English The Torah The Five Books of Moses

Author: Rev. David Bauscher
Publisher: Lulu.com
ISBN: 9781304919434
Release Date: 2015-04-19
Genre: Religion

This is a prose English and very literal translation of the first five books of the Old Testament (The Torah). Aramaic was the language of Jesus and of 1st century Israel. The Peshitta Bible is the world's first entire Christian Bible. The Peshitta Old Testament is itself a translation of the Hebrew Bible completed in the 1st century AD, according to the available evidence. No Peshitta scholar places the Peshitta OT later than the 2nd century AD. As such, it gives an early look at the state of the Hebrew Bible at that time, since Aramaic and Hebrew are sister Semitic languages and about as close to each other as any two languages can be, sharing the same alphabet, writing, grammar, much vocabulary and even similar pronunciation of many words. Some of the original Old Testament is Aramaic, such as Daniel chapters 2 through 7 inclusive, and Ezra 4 through much of 7. It even appears in a verse of Genesis 31 and one verse in Jeremiah 10:11. 228 pages, hardback.

Trotz ihrer universellen Weisheit ist die Bibel ein nahöstliches Buch, das für Menschen des Nahen Ostens geschrieben wurde. Jede ihrer Seiten spiegelt nahöstliches Denken und Fühlen, Sitten, Gebräche, Redeweise und ausmalende Erzählkunst wider. Diese zumeist übersehene Tatsache fordert auf, darüber nachzudenken, ob die Bibel wortwörtlich zu verstehen ist oder ob sich buchstäbliche Deutung nicht geradezu verbietet. Wie kann man erkennen, was wirklich gemeint ist? Wie wurden die biblischen Geschichten ursprünglich verstanden? Ist die Bibel überhaupt richtig übersetzt? Diese und viele weitere Fragen beantwortet Dr. Rocco Errico in diesem Buch. Unter Zuhilfenahme seiner „sieben Schlüssel“ und aramäischer Bibelmanuskripte baut er eine Brücke zwischen unserem westlichen Denken und den sozialen Gegebenheiten des antiken Nahen Ostens. Jahrhundertlang missverstandene oder widersprüchlich erscheinende Bibelverse werden dadurch (oft überraschend) erhellt und ihre Bedeutung, die immer einfach und unkompliziert war, erkannt.
