Holy Bible: From the Ancient Eastern Text: by George M. Lamsa
Author: George M. Lamsa
|This handsome new edition of the authoritative English translation of the Aramaic (Syriac) Old and New Testaments--the language of Jesus--clarifies difficult passages and offers fresh insight on the Bible's message.|
Now presented in a handsome new edition: the classic version of The Holy Bible is translated directly from the Aramaic (Syriac) text - the language of Jesus - by renowed scholar George M. Lamsa. The translator grew upin the Middle East speaking Aramaic, steeped in a culture with 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 the Aramaic Scriptures - called the Peshitta - into English.
