(-: !ܫܠܴܡܴܐ | Shlama! :-)

Here you will find ancient manuscripts and translations of the New Testament, as well as evidence for their original authorship in Aramaic.

The menu on the left, you will find links on this site pertaining to the 4 Gospels and Revelation.

These pages utilize Unicode to display Aramaic, Hebrew, Roman, and Greek fonts, so you may need a good Unicode font to display them properly!





If you see only dots, squares, or ?'s above for at least one of the languages, you will need to use a Unicode-enabled browser, and/or download a proper Unicode font, such as Code2000.

Every few weeks, a newsletter will be sent to your box full of information about Aramaic on the Internet (and where to find it)!
The email list is distributed through my messageboard system, so once you have an account on my Upperboard system, you'll start recieving the newsletter.
I won't sell off your private information, so you won't be getting junkmail :-)

10 days before move-in!

If you haven't guessed already, I'm a freshman in college this upcomming semester at Rutgers University (Livingston Campus). August 30th's the move-in date and I'm as nervous as hell about it, but excited! Unfortunately, this means that there will be few updates for the next month (I'll need time to settle in).

Anyways, I have added a new articles section which lists all of the articles on this site in alphabetical order, as well as other good articles I've found in my research on the 'Net. If any links break on me, please gimme a buzz to let me know! I want to be able to fix things asap.

Also, sign up for the E-Zine! So far, there is only one member (not including myself) and I would love to really get it off the ground (I won't start the mailings until I have at least 5 people on the list). Every couple of weeks I'll be sending out an email to you with the latest finds on the 'Net for Aramaic, as well as tidbits and whatever other neat stuff I can ferret out. It'll be fun, it's safe, and you get an account for my messageboard at the same time (which is another thing that I'd love if people were to populate) :-)

This website will be moving to the server soon, and possibly get it's own domain name, so keep an eye out for that! :-)

Lastly, soon I will be comming out with a publication section of this website, where I will be selling copies of manuscripts (which will be dirt cheap, and also available for free on my website in Unicode), and copies of books that I'm writing. First on the list is a nifty book on Estrangela caligraphy with instructions and exercises (it's gonna be cool). :-)

Well that's it for this week.

Shlama for now, rakhmai,


Old News:

August 11th 2002,

Sorry that there haven't been many updates lately. I'm getting ready to go back to school.

So, as a consolation, I have posted two more Gospels in Unicode: The Eastern Peshitta Matthew and Mark.

NEWS FLASH: Also in the news, a few days ago, Mr. Paul Younan of has offered me some webspace for this site on his server in exchange for helping redo's look! This means, no more stupid Tripod popup adds and the ability to help out one of the best Aramaic websites on the 'Net! :-)

Life is good :-)

July 28th 2002,

A new Aramaic Websites section. Here I'm posting my reviews of all of the Aramaic websites that I have found in my years of study :-)

If there's one that's not up there that you would like me to take a look at and add, give me an email and I'll see what I can do! :-)

Also, be sure to sign up for the Ezine

Shlama for now, rakhmai,

July 25th 2002,

Whohoo! Up past the 1000 visitor mark! More updates are coming soon :-)

July 19th 2002,

Updated all of the lessons currently up, and I'm adding on to Lesson 3.

Be sure to re-read Lesson 2 for the romanizations I use! There has been a slight change.

ALSO, keep your eyes peeled for a new Bookstore section. I'll have all of my picks from, and soon a series I'm writing on Aramaic Caligraphy :-)

July 10th 2002,

Section 2 is 1/2 of the way up. I just need to flesh out the remainder of the text. I have all 4 vowel systems up (complete enough to learn how to pronounce them) and I'm working dilligently to finish the dialect marks and finish the other text). :-)

July 3rd 2002,

Feeling inspired by a quick trip to, I am now working on my own Grammar section of this site. I hope you'll enjoy it! :-)

June 25th 2002,

I have just re-posted all of the Sinaitic Palimpsest of Mark in a printable format that's easier on the eyes than white on black. Please be sure to report any errors you spot, for the quicker I know about them, the quicker I can squash them. ;-)

Also, I'm announcing that hopefully within the next 2-3 weeks my copy of the Crawford Manuscript of Revelation will arrive from Manchester, England, and I will begin digitizing it, chapter by chapter!

Other than that, keep your eyes peeled for digital Unicode coppies of every version of the Gospels and Revelation that I can get my hands on in the meantime. :-)

Also, if you really like this site, a donation would really be keen (never required, but always welcomed). :-D

June 20th 2002,

Still working on the right to left bug :-) I think that I have most of the articles fixed now. I just have yet to go over Revelation. After all that is done, I'll be goofing around with the menu layout a bit.

Also keep your eyes peeled for the Luke section that's going up soon, for there will be an article, with conclusive evidence from the Aramaic, that our Messiah is also God!
