The Syriac Sinaitic

The Syriac Sinaitic was discovered in Saint Catherine’s Monastary of Mount Sinai ( not the real Mt Sinai). This is also the place where the Codex Sinaiticus was discovered by Constantin von Tischendorf in a bin ready for the fire. A rubbish bin that is. (Codex Sinaiticus not the Syriac Sinaitic).

Peshitta vs Old Latin ( Vetus Latina)

Which agrees most with the Authorized version of the bible? Personally i’d say the Old Latin or the Vetus Latina. First off, the Vetus Latina contains scriptures usually left out by the Peshitta and confirms many New Testament scriptures. The Vetus Latina is also what most people claim the Waldenses  were protecting and that later […]

The Vetus Latina is the Latin version of the bible, probably the oldest form of the New Testament. It was known as the Latin Vulgate because it was the most commonly used bible. Then in 382 Jerome under the order of the Pope compiled a new version by taking many of the Vetus Latina manuscripts […]

Philoxenian version of the Bible

Talk about a bit of history. The Philoxenian version was written by Aksenāyâ Mabûḡāyâ which is probably translated as most people say Philoxenus of Mabbug. This version started in the 5th Century by the above to be a more accurate translation of the Septuagint ( the Greek Old Testament written in long before ). This is a […]
