I could not understand why my Bible would have Eli, Eli, la'ma sabachthani, and I certainly did not trust the translators. They could have made a scribal error, or even a mis-interpretation. Not to mention; What language is this written in? So that brought me to by my first Peshitta Bible by Dr. Lamsa which revealed the true meaning of the word. Your book also brought to light certain revelations about Aramaic Idioms, and how they could be misunderstood, or not understood at all. It made me feel good to know that God did not forsake Jesus during his time of utmost need, but with a joyous voice of victory he cried; Papa! Papa! For this I was put aside/kept/spared/ This is my destiny.
Wado (Thank You), Very much for your book

|Message||I’ve recently visited your website and I found it very informative and fascinating. I’ve known that Jesus’s (may peace and blessings be upon him) mother tongue was Aramaic and I believe (if I’m not mistaken) more specifically a Western Aramaic dialect spoken around Galilee (knew this even before ‘The Passion’ came out). It wasn’t until recently that I’ve learned about the Peshitta. I have a very strong fetish for religion and of collecting religious books and items as well as a strong desire to learn Semitic/Afro-Asiatic languages. I’m in the process of learning Arabic and Hebrew and will eventually make my way, God Willing, to learning Aramaic. These 3 languages I intend to teach my future children to provide them a greater tool in their studies into the Abrahamic religions’ scriptures of Qur’an, TaNaCH, and Peshitta and/or Syriac Bible. Anyway, I have a strong desire to learn Aramaic so I can read the Peshitta which I’m sure is more accurate.|
|Message||Amazing. Wish I could speak Aramaic so I could appreciate the poetry. I look forward to selecting my favorite translation. Your efforts are a testimony to reincarnation, for surely more than one lifetime has been needed. Much success in your career as a heart surgeon. I suspect you are destined to make breakthoughs which will be taught to others, for how else could you touch more than one person at a time as you have in your avocation?|
I found your website extremely interesting and even more informative. I have been surfing for the most helpful aramaic website and yours has been the most helpful.
|Message||With great interest I read the Aramaic Peshitta Primacy for Dummies, also because I am a member of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch. Here is another proof for you which makes a lot of translations look a bit silly:|
in Matthew 19-25, Mark 10-25 and Luke 18-25 it says: It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven.
The aramaic word involved here is Gamlo (gomel - miem - lomed - olef) which could mean camel. But another translation for this word is a thick rope used to tie boats ashore. This meaning would be a lot more plausible because as you know he was talking mainly to fishermen.

I live in Montreal, Canada. But in my childhood iwas raised there 1979 for One year. Mountenergro speaks the oldest serbian language and more religious traditions then most of the balkan area. I started reading the bible at age 21. I knew that so much deep spiritual meaning is missing. Jesus Christs favourite language is Aramaic. And his holy church in heaven its prefered. why!! Its the most spiritual language in the world. The greeks are very Jealous of the Oriental Churches, becuase they were established before them. The Vulgate the first latin bible used greek text. But the greek used the Syrian which western society and greeks dont want to give credit to. The jewish prey not in Hebrew language. When I hear Asshuri language and Syraic I can understand the language and it hidden spiritual meanings and mentality. I get very offended how The syraic language, music, liturgy scriptures is oppressed by Greece and Europe. Macedonia and greece dont get along anymore. Many words were inserted by Altin, english scholars that were unheard of before.
|Message||bloody chris, do some work!|
|Message||What you are doing, for free is really a good service to those who want to study aramaic seriously. I just learned the first three letters (and of course numbers) and am hot on the trail of becoming a fluent aramaic scholar. Thank-you for making this possible. Really thank-you. It just makes sense to me that the first new testament would be in Aramaic.|
What an amazing web site! Nicely done! Congratulation!
We are trully blessed by the contents.
All the best to you!
|Message||Thank you for the great gift of this website. It will be of great importance to all who care deeply about the New Testament and its origins. What a great resource!|
