The Peshitta Bible is based on the Peshitta text, an ancient Bible manuscript written in Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus Christ and His apostles. Unique in its genre, this work is the first formal attempt to translate those manuscripts into Spanish. This version will help the reader better understand certain Bible texts that had not been clearly grasped before. Aramaic was the primary language during the times of the Assyrian, Babylonian and Persian empires, as well as the language adopted as mother tongue by the people of Israel since their exile in Babylon until the days of Jesus Christ. In certain areas of Iraq, Iran, Lebanon and Israel this language is still being spoken. The current renewed interest in Bible Aramaic is mainly conveyed by the translation of the Peshitta text into Spanish. This work, the ultimate masterpiece in Aramaic literature, left the message of the gospel and the apostles as a historical record in a "clear, simple, straightforward" language, and this is-incidentally-what the word "Peshitta" means. In the final section of this work, the reader will find a reference to relevant text selections and comparative tables between traditional Hebrew and Greek texts with the Peshitta text. These resources will help the reader conduct an in-depth study and better understand God's Word as recorded in this text.
