    A most accurate translation

    I have had an old hardbound copy of the Lamsa Peshitta Bible; it's been on the shelf since 1967; from Holman. It was bought for my father for his 46th birthday. I would highly recommend this translation over all other English translations of the Bible. I have found major discrepancies in KJV and other translations that this Bible has cleared up.

    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.

    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.
