TODAY’S BLOG ENTRY - © - JULY 21, 2017

       Here is the premise: “Jesus and his earliest followers certainly spoke Aramaic for the most part, although they knew Hebrew. Therefore the Gospel message was first preached in the Aramaic of the Jews of Palestine. Modern scholarship tells us that the originals of the Four Gospels and of other parts of the New Testament were written in Greek; this is disputed by the Church of the East…Regardless of which view one may accept, Aramaic speech is an underlying factor and it is unquestionably tue that documents written in Aramaic were drawn on by writers of the New Testament.”

       From that premise comes the Holy Bible from the ancient Eastern text, George M. Lamsa’s Translations From the Aramaic of the Peshitta as produced in 1933. Lamsa boldly asserts “The Peshitta is the only text through which we can ascertain the ancient Bible text.”

      While there are literally thousands of Greek manuscripts preserving Bible passages, almost all the Aramaic were lost in World War One. “Astonishingly enough,” Lamsa writes, “all the Peshitta texts in Aramaic agree.” Lamsa used the Mortimer-McCawley text for the New Testament and Codex Ambrosianus for the Old.  While thousands of texts for your King James Bible were distilled over thousands of years by thousands of scholars, for the Peshitta we have good old George and Mortimer.

       There are scores of Peshitta verses which are vastly superior to the NIV, NASV, TLB, HCS, etc., the Lamsa Peshitta in my most remarkable Bible collection has some real clunkers:

     I John 5:7 And the Spirit testifies that the very Spirit is the truth… and of course Acts 12:4 says “the Jewish passover.”

     …and this tells you Lamsa’s view of the deity of Christ: your King James reads John 10:30  I and my Father are one…. But the Lamsa Peshitta reads John 10:30 I and my Father are of one accord. Sad to say, people who have trouble with their King James Bibles, people who are not well taught, fall for fad items like this one, wasting time rather than redeeming it.

MOST RECENT RADIO BROADCASTS

Make arrangements with your local station to air this program in your area.
This program has seen souls saved and saints edified since 1980.




It was back in September 1980 that I produced my first radio program on a reel-to-reel recorder that stood eight feet tall.  The mechanics have changed, but radio remains a most effective means by which to speak to people as if it were one-on-one. Over the 37 years of broadcasting the results have always been there, perhaps because my program is very different from any and all the other Christian programming out there: give it a try!!


TODAY’S BEST SNAIL-MAIL

Good Morning Pastor Mc Lean,

   The (DBI) study on expansion was great and knowing the truth through experience coming from a church that never taught anything from our Apostle Paul that continues to grow and does so may wrong things… it all just proves the growth of apostasy.

   Please forward me a copy of the sample church Constitution that you make available and Articles of Incorporation if you have them.

    I listen to your radio broadcast daily and you mentioned a free copy of your book on Hebrews…

1 Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.



Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery

Today's McNuggett: The most divisive issue which has plagued Christianity for all of 20 centuries involves the person of Christ. The Bible testimony is Christ is the fullness of the Godhead bodily...Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

  It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is written, but of whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after.   Miles Coverdale
