Fine, let's settle this point. Show me the evidence that supports this claim. Not Wikipedia, not "sayings from Jesus", but clear academic evidence
that the consensus of New Testament scholars is that the Greek New Testament is a translation of an Aramaic original.
Let's see...I've quoted St. Jerome, the patriarch of the Church of the East, given you a 64 page explanation from an Aramaic scholar, and pointed
you towards the Peshi-tta text itself, even giving you specific examples where the Greek translation was completely botched. Yet you still demand
Where is your proof that the Greek New Testament is the original authentic translation?
How do you explain even simple botched translations, such as Simon the Leper, let alone the hundreds of other botched translations?
How do you explain that even modern scholars claim the Greek New Testament came from an original Aramaic source?
What is your refutation that the Church of the East does not have the authentic New Testament?
Where is your evidence that modern scholars do not believe that the Greek New Testament did not come from an Aramaic source?
How do you explain the dozens of Aramaic expressions, metaphors, etc. that are found in the Peshi-tta, and not found in the botched Greek New
How do you explain the Nazarenes that spoke Aramaic and fled to Syria after the destruction of the Second Temple?
When you answer even a single one of my questions, which you have yet to do thus far, I might actually consider engaging in this discussion further.
Ironically enough, the Pope himself came out authoritatively stating the Roman Church botched the date of Christ's birth, and also botched the
Christian calendar. Why would you take them seriously that they got the actual text of the Bible correctly, also? There is no credibility whatsoever
from the pagans, my friend.
Which really gets to the heart of this thread. The Church has completely changed not only the Jewish Sabbath, but has completely fallen away from so
many of the clear instructions laid out in the Bible itself. Idolatry? The Church is full of idols. Rosary? A post-biblical practice. Veneration,
if not downright worship of Mary? Borderline idolatry hearkening back to pagan practices. Scapulars? No, the Bible states the followers of God
should wear fringes on their shirts, not scapulars. Shave your beard? Not according to Leviticus, but the Catholic priests are clean shaven.
I could go on and on, but the Church is so far removed from Holy Writ theologically, it's mind-boggling sometimes. The theory that Christ replaced
the Old Testament is a false doctrine. Christ was a rabbi, and followed the Jewish feasts. He loved the Torah, and the Jewish people for that
