I've been a student of the Bible from over 50 years now. I love this Bible because it provides the reader with a direct translation of the Ancient text. Any lay person should have this Bible in their library.
This Bible is a translation of the Aramaic of the Peshitta. Many Bibles today including KJV and other modern translations use words in their translation that are not in the original Greek texts. Jesus knew Aramaic and read from the Aramaic version. He also preached from the Aramaic language. Remember the English Bibles were not around until the late 1300's. Sorry KJV only people. Original Languages are always better but we can get a good translation into English from other languages than Greek. A for instance. The word church is not in the Greek. The Greek word is ekklesia which means congregation or assembly. Church is a word that literally means building. See Shorter Oxford Dictionary. So when you ask me where I go to church you are asking me, What building do you go to. This word is only used in English Bibles. Unfortunately this Bible also uses church for ekklesia. UGH!
I enjoy seeing this Bible which was the language of Jesus. I do not see any conflict with most of today's versions. However I have conflict with some newer translations on the market. I also enjoy the insight this Bible offers. A very good buy. Just need a hard cover or leather cover.
I looove getting the bona fide text from the original language Jesus spoke!!! Sheds so much light on vague or indecipherable texts! Excellent insights into the eastern culture through footnotes, too! Thanks a bazillion, George!!!
This book was exactly what I was looking for. A friend had a copy, which I looked over and decided I wanted a copy for myself. I checked a few places and then found your site. Your store had it available and at a reasonable price.
I would recommend this copy of the Bible and this site for your Christian supplies. Thank you.
I am so grateful for this Bible. I realize there are many words with a different translation than KJV and as we know, WORDS are very important. Especially in the Lord`s prayer. This is a magnificent work and has stood the test of time with good reason. I love the ease of read in the text font & boldness as well. I miss the red lettering of Jesus, however, found that I can underline in color code, the information I want to find with ease later. My only concern is to how long the binding will last, but at this price, we have a wonderful book. Thank you so much for being there with these offers and the great selection.
