CALLING ALL MEMBERS AND EX-MEMBERS OF THE WAY INTERNATIONAL!
I am looking for members and ex-members of The Way International.
As you may know, the late Dr. Wierwille, founder of The Way
International, taught that the NT was originally written in Aramaic,
the Peshitta Aramaic NT is an important witness to the NT text, and
research tools on this subject are badly needed. As the following
"...Aramaic was the original language in which the New
Testament was written..."-- Dr. Victor Paul
Wierwille; Twenty-fifth Anniversay Souvenir Booklet,
"For centuries, the Greek versions of the New Testament
have recieved their due attention while the Aramaic
versions, for the most part, have been neglected.
Discoveries in textual criticism in the last 150 years,
however, have shown the Peshitta [Aramaic] text,... and
other versions play as vital a role as the Greek in
ascertaining the original New Testament text... In recent
times some scholars have demonstrated that a Palestinian
Aramaic original lies behind the Greek versions of New
Testament documents.... research tools of the Peshitta
[Aramaic] Version are essential to this task."-- Dr.
Victor Paul Wierwille; The Concordance to the Peshitta
Version of the Aramaic New Testament; p. ix
