|About the Book|
The age and history of the Khabouris Manuscript is unknown. It was given to the Yonan Codex Foundation by two Americans who are said to have secured it from an ancient religious sect known to modern scholars as Nestorian, a surviving remnant of the See of Babylon of the Church of the East. It is thought to have come from a small church library atop a mountain in Kurdistan. This New Testement manuscript has been translated directly to English from the ancient Aramaic with particular and painstaking fidelity to the preservation of the thought patterns, images and concepts peculiar to Aramaic, the native language of Jesus of Nazareth, and the language in which He delivered His teachings to the world.
