No.  And even Lamsa did not translate the Peshitta Apocrypha (which are part of the canon of the Peshitta Tanak).


A good resource some day would be the Masoretic Text, LXX and Peshitta translated literally in parallel columns and annotated with reference to the Samaritan text, the Dead Sea Scrolls and Masorah.

Looking Forward to seeing this take place.

What is the best resource available to understand the original aramaic as spoken by Jesus? Thanks

@ Gregg:  Try Everyday Aramaic (Galilean)

What is your take on the book called 2nd Baruch, as it was included in some manuscripts of the Syriac Peshitta?

That is very interesting Mr Trimm, I took the Laws of Living course in Albany Ga from Dr McDougald in the early 80's. Took over the Aramaic Bible Society in 2006 and served as President until 2009. During this time I had the chance to teach the course.
