The New Testament of Our Lord Jesus Christ: Part I: The Four Gospels

ByAmerican Mission Press

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This volume contains the first part (the four Gospels) of the original issue of the complete New Testament published by the American Protestant Mission to the Assyrians in Urmia, Iran in 1846. The book was printed in both the newly developed Modern Assyrian language and the Syriac language that was the liturgical and only literary language in use among the Assyrians before the creation of the new literary language. The texts are presented in parallel columns. This volume represents the first time that the complete New Testament was published in Assyrian and it represents one of only three known instances where the American Mission published any text in Syriac. Although later translations were based on the Greek text of the New Testament, the Assyrian translation given here was made from the Syriac Peshitta version in the accompanying column with variations from the Greek included as footnotes.
