: Hi Khatie Lillie,
: Sorry so long to respond....my little girl has been miserably ill the last few days with the flu and hasn't let me out of her sight. :-)
: I'm glad you found my "pisheeta" (as Fred calls it :-)) website interesting. When Fred first found it, he thought I was some scholar or academic type or something. Of course, that placed me in the path of his wrath right from the get-go. Let me assure you, though, I'm just a "layperson" and it's just a hobby....I love our language and the Peshitta New Testament is a great example of Aramaic.
: It doesn't surprise me that bibles are translated from the English these days....I mean, if the "west" disregarded Aramaic so long ago because of their anti-Semitism, why not disregard the Greek today?
: Christ was one of us, our own people. He spoke our language and the "Christian" New Testament was first penned in it...we have preserved it all these centuries.
: It's just one more thing the "west" has taken credit for...by claiming it was in their own Greek language which has primacy.
: The website is a small attempt by one Assyrian to give credit where it's due.
: Take care azizta,
Khatie Kharta Ghatie.... I know your kind , PREACHER!
