Oh yes, very much so. For instance, the Pesh1tta AKA the Syriac or Aramaic NT only counts 22 books, originally omitting the whole Antilegomena
(disputed books, in particular2 Peter, 2 and 3 John, Jude, and the Apocalypse) AND the whole corpus of Catholic epistles, but the latter ones were
later translated into Syriac Aramaic and included. Most likely the letters of John are pseudepigrapha and possibly written (by someone else) as subtle
additions to the Apocalypse, using similar concepts and wording for concepts central in the Apocalypse. Someone jumping on the bandwagon.
