comment What arguments exist that would refute the theory concerning Aramaic primacy of the New Testament?
@ScottS very interesting. I vacillate between a similar position and the latest ideas from higher criticism.

comment Why did Jesus did not utter the whole phrase “ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ὤν” in John 8:58?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. I don't know if we can speculate as to why Jesus did not say something, but I'll be interested to see what kinds of answers this attracts. See also Is NWT's translation of John 8:58 reasonable?.

comment Date of appearance of the New Testament in Syriac (Peshitta)
no problem. It's not worthy of a DV, I was just curious if you had read Black's book and if you wished to add any additional sources. There is no need to do so.

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. This is definitely a very biased field where little of the literature does a good job remaining neutral and presenting only the facts. Do you have any sources other than Wikipedia articles? Are you familiar with Matthew Black's An Aramaic Approach to the Gospels and Acts?

comment How is the Septuagint interpretation of Psalms 40:6 reconciled with the Hebrew text?
@PaulVargas I agree with Mark on this one - but answers are free to take a number of perspectives, including disagreeing with the source cited.

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. Be sure to properly cite the text you're asking about. The chapter and verse numbers do not always line up between the Hebrew, Greek, and English texts.

comment Romans 8:28 translation
In CCEL, if you go to the 'Study' a Scripture passage selection and select 'References' then go under Phillip Schaff you will find the Church Fathers on specific verses you search for - VERY helpful. For instance, here's John Chrysostom's homily on this passage.

comment Romans 8:28 translation
@David there is no need to update your answer (unless you want to); I just wanted to share some free tools that are available online that you may find helpful for future studies. First, there are tons of free books including commentaries at archive.org (e.g. Denney's Romans Greek commentary on this passage). Second, you can find TONS of free Christian works including the Church Fathers at the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL). Just sharing some resources you might find helpful!
