|Message||After reading your book Was the New Testament Written in Greek, I was amazed at how much more depth Aramaic has over Greek (though not even close in comparison to Hebrew). I also printed the book for offline study. Now I am disgusted at the Greek texts, and to be honest, wouldn't bother me to ever read the Greek again. I bought an Aramaic (I hope it's a real Peshitta Bible) with Jacobite script from the American Bible Society. I know nothing of the language, but yearn to know it fluently, as I would also with Hebrew. |
Now my next question is: Should I scrap my King James and other churchian translations of the Holy Writings? Lamsa's translation is too King James-y. But it's the only common translation of the Peshitta.
May Yahweh bless You, Chris, for this website and free book. I know it in my heart that this book has stirred me to learn Aramaic, hopefully to one day master both Hebrew and Aramaic. And if Yahweh allows, possibly Arabic as well.
Abba Yahweh please reveal more of Yourself to all who love You and want to seek You in all their heart, mind, being, and might in Yeshua's Name. Enlighten us with Your Spirit of Holiness. Show us your Face. Amen.
|Message||Dear Mr. Lancaster,|
I've been reading much of your book 'Was The New
Testament Really Written In Greek?', lately.
I want you to know that I'm very thankful to you and to God, that you provided this free resource, to us all.
Your book is simply wonderful, and a Godsend!
Thanks for your help, Shlama, Alfred

|Message||The site is beautifully done. Hope to see more and more in the future.|
|Message||I like your site!|
With best wishes.
This book should be read and seriously considered by any student of the scriptures. Chris has done an excellent job in his task, and he has done it for free. Being of poor finances, it does my heart good to know that there are still others in this world who will feed without thought of monetary gain. And that is what makes all of the difference. I am reminded of what is written in the scroll of Isaiah, “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.”
I am thankful to Chris for freely sharing; may the Lord God reward him graciously.
I have been using your site as part of my research on the Aramaic NT. Great to see a fellow Australian contibuting to such an important work.
|Message||Victor Alexander misleads people, but Christopher Lancaster leads people toward a much clearer picture of the New Testament. Chris goes by Aramaic scripture to continue the challenge of presumptions made of this day's status quo in a similar way to what Martin Luther had began in the 1500's (by challenging the authenticity and accuracy of the Latin Vulgate). If Martin Luther had Chris Lancaster's Aramaic resources, the Reformation perhaps would have gone a little smoother, and there may have not been so many splits and differences in the Body of Christ today. I firmly believe that Chris's work is a unifying force not only in the Body of Christ, but in the Judeo-Christian tree. |
Carry on Chris!
Blessings and Peace
|Message||I had been aware of the Peshitta for a number of years, and had used it in my studies as well. Even though I was aware of the antiquity of the book, I had no idea that it was considered by many to be the original language of the New Testament scriptures. That all changed while searching for a copy of the Peshitta online and stumbling across Chris' website. What I found there was a little book that would challenge everything I had known about the language in which the New Testament was penned. Like so many others, I had always just assumed that the New Testament was written in Greek. Why not? I had been told so by others for many years, and knew of no opposing arguments. |
Chris' book set those arguments before me. These were not the arguments of a weak position, but of a position so strong that I had to wonder why I had never before heard of Aramaic Peshitta primacy. Chris' book compiles arguments for Peshitta primacy, sending them out one by one as solitary scouts until, by the closing chapters, the reader is quickly aware that these small scouts have come together into battalions, marching against the entrenched walls of traditional assumption. As with the walls of old Jericho, the walls of Greek primacy will fall down flat.
