The Testimony of Yeshua

ByLonnie Martin

When I read the book: Was the New Testament Really Written in Greek? I learned that the "New Testament" was really translated from the Aramaic Peshitta into Greek. But the only modern English version available was the 1933 Lamsa—very copyright restricted. So I decided to update the 1851 Murdock / 1848 Etheridge versions into modern English. It took thousands of hours to revise the texts, noting the significant differences between the Aramaic and the Greek versions. I thought that I would find many new insights that were lost in the translation from Aramaic to Greek, but more errors actually occur going from Greek to English! The online version has about 2,500 live links to a Greek lexicon for instant verifications, and no copyright. I am now certain that the objectivity of the translators has a greater influence on a translation than whether or not it is based on the Aramaic or the Greek!
