Every language has a unique rhythm and special cadence that is exchanged between native speakers. It is musical really; a song called prose; every conversation a beautiful score. Maybe that is why people are appropriately taken aback when they learn that the Bible they grew up with was not translated directly from original Aramaic texts, but rather from Greek translations retranslated into English. The Aramaic English New Testament (AENT) comes directly from Aramaic, the very language spoken by Jesus and his disciples.
Indeed the AENT is the most definitive English New Testament in nearly two thousand years and it is superlative. You see the AENT translates Aramaic into English as literally and precisely as possible – no extra paraphrasing or interpretative glosses are injected into the English translation. And therein lies the true beauty and power of every language; it is found in the earnest interchange between loving individuals… God and His children, the disciples and the early followers, Jesus and you.
Trace your fingers over the original Aramaic words on the right side of the page, while you explore the English translation on the left. Allow your gaze to follow naturally downward where over 2,000 footnotes illuminate the inspired passages in previously inaccessible ways.
Whether you enjoy the weighty tradition of the hardcover volume – complete with an indestructible binding and delicate silk ribbon placeholder, or should you select the artistically wrapped convenience of the softcover edition – turning the premium-grade pages with reverent anticipation… The AENT invites you to delve into the unfathomable depths of the Kingdom of Heaven, rediscover the life-changing power of the Good News and survey colorful truths displayed through a glorious collection of footnotes and appendixes.
