The consensus within biblical scholarship, though not universal, is that the Old Testament of the Peshitta was translated into Syriac from Hebrew , probably in the 2nd century AD, and that the New Testament of the Peshitta was translated from the Greek. Syriac is a dialect, or group of dialects, of Eastern Aramaic , originating around Edessa. All of these are acceptable, but Peshitta is the most conventional spelling in English. The Peshitta had from the 5th century onward a wide circulation in the East, and was accepted and honored by the whole diversity of sects of Syriac Christianity. It had a great missionary influence: the Armenian and Georgian versions, as well as the Arabic and the Persian, owe not a little to the Syriac.

The consensus within biblical scholarship, though not universal, is that the Old Testament of the Peshitta was translated into Syriac from Hebrew , probably in the 2nd century AD, and that the New Testament of the Peshitta was translated from the Greek. Syriac is a dialect, or group of dialects, of Eastern Aramaic , originating around Edessa.
All of these are acceptable, but Peshitta is the most conventional spelling in English. The Peshitta had from the 5th century onward a wide circulation in the East, and was accepted and honored by the whole diversity of sects of Syriac Christianity. It had a great missionary influence: the Armenian and Georgian versions, as well as the Arabic and the Persian, owe not a little to the Syriac. The famous Nestorian tablet of Chang'an witnesses to the presence of the Syriac scriptures in the heart of China in the 8th century.
The Peshitta was first brought to the West by Moses of Mindin , a noted Syrian ecclesiastic who unsuccessfully sought a patron for the work of printing it in Rome and Venice.
He undertook the printing of the New Testament, and the emperor bore the cost of the special types which had to be cast for its issue in Syriac. Immanuel Tremellius , the converted Jew whose scholarship was so valuable to the English reformers and divines, made use of it, and in issued a Syriac New Testament in Hebrew letters. The article noted that it was taken to the White House where President Eisenhower viewed it. In a detailed examination of Matthew 1—14, Gwilliam found that the Peshitta agrees with the Textus Receptus only times and with the Codex Vaticanus 65 times.

Joseph, the son of Matthias, by birth a Hebrew, a priest also, and one who at first fought against the Romans myself, and was forced to be present at what was done afterwards, [am the author of this work]",. Yigael Yadin, an archeologist working on the Qumran find, also agrees with Josephus' testimony, pointing out that Aramaic was the lingua franca of this time period. A statement by Eusebius that Hegesippus "made some quotations from the Gospel according to the Hebrews and from the Syriac Gospel," means we should have a reference to a Syriac New Testament as early as — AD, the time of that Hebrew Christian writer.
The translation of the New Testament is careful, faithful and literal, and the simplicity, directness and transparency of the style are admired by all Syriac scholars and have earned it the title of "Queen of the versions.
