Aramaic was the language of Israel in the time of Christ and is called Hebrew in the King James Version. Almost all of the place names given in the NT are Aramaic names, and we have tried to preserve those names in this translation. According to the first century historian Josephus, Greek was greatly discouraged by the Hebrew authorities and the Hellenists, or greek speakers were shunned.
You may ask, why do we need another translation of the Holy Scriptures? Although the subject is highly controversial with some, we have examined carefully the differences between the texts and found very convincingly that the words themselves show that the Greek Manuscripts are translations of the Aramaic Manuscripts. However, we have found no evidence from the Greek Manuscripts suggesting that the Aramiac NT was a translation of the Greek.
Assyrian and Syrian Christians have always maintained that they hold the original New Testament, preserved in the Peshitta NT, as they call it, carefully copied since the days of the disciples. They claim that the Greek manuscripts were translated from the Peshitta NT. The Western Churches claim however, that it is the Aramaic not the Greek which is the translation.
Who is right?
We have found that the text gives the answer. Lets examine 2 Corinthians 4:18
Aramaic NT - For we do not rejoice in those things that are seen, but in these things that are unseen......
KJV - While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen......
This indicates the Greek was in fact the translation. We have found this sort of evidence all throughout the Aramaic NT, supporting the claims of the Syrian Church.
Another startling revelation was the ELS bible codes that have been so widely recorded in the Old Testament Scriptures, can't be found in the Greek NT, but are found all throughout the Aramaic NT. For more information navigate to our Research page.

This is one of only two interlinear NT translations in print, and probably one of only two complete plain English translations that has been written from the foundation of an interlinear translation. There are some past and more recent translations, some using parts of bad manuscripts and some using less than acceptable translation methods and with personal slants.
