This is an excellent refrence for New Testament Bible study. Dr. Lamsa has a scholary insight into the ancient Aramaic texts that is easy to read and understand. The Aramaic translations illuminate many nuances lost due to slight mistakes in the main stream Greek versions of the New Testament. I also purchased Dr. Lamsa's translation of the Holy Bible from the ancient Eastern texts, I have replaced all my other Bibles with this one. Dr Lamsa works are a blessing to not just Christians, but all mankind.

I received my copy of the Deluxe Study Edition and love it!

One not so small complaint though. Portions of the book are fraught with numerous misspellings and typographical errors. It's very distracting and less than professional in this age of spell-check and computers.

Example: pg. 586 last paragraph

"They were mostly unctiltured..."

Some places I have found as many as five errors in one paragraph.

Shame on the printer:

I just purchased this Bible translation and have loved using it as a study guide when I am studying scripture. Most of the time it parallels my NIV translation and NKJV also, but it is when it reads a little different that it really sparks my attention and my desire to look deeper into God's word for a more in-depth study. Using different translations is very helpful in understanding what scripture is saying. Using a the Lamsa translation from the original language gives insight to consider more deeply what God means in His scripture. It is really a good resource.

Format: Hardcover
Dr.Lamsa's credentials are above reproach. I have used and valued his Old & New Testaments which I have owned for over 30 yrs since my seminary days. And, I have preached from it recently, and it has been well received as a source book, despite the conflicts with Greek and Western thought. Truth always prevails and this version is chocked full of truth. It is, [The Modern New Testament from Aramaic] highly enlightening and credible. A foundational work which can be totally relied on to be confirmable in it's verasity. It is by far my personal favorite Bible since I can throughly trust it to be well researched and documented.

While the translation is good and very interesting, the editing and proof reading of this edition are poor. We have found many typos, missing words and phrases and some sentences which make no sense at all.The Modern New Testament from the Aramaic: With New Testament Origin, Comparative Bible Verses, & A Compact English-Aramaic Concordance : Deluxe Study Edition

Format: Hardcover
Brilliant scholar translates scripture, warning in the preface of its natural, multiple meanings. However, the resulting text does not give the flavor of alternate meanings he suggested would come. Very traditional result of what could have been a valuable tool for growth and healing.

If your a Cristian, you must read this translation. It cuts out the middleman and makes the meanings of obscure passages more clear. Thank you Dr. Lamsa

It was so refreshing when I finally obtained this text. Within the text go to what the Beloved said on the cross in Aramaic and you will realize the treasures that are found in this text... and there are so many.

The Text is easily followed and a text that I believe is a "must have" for laymen and scholar alike. You will so enjoy it....
