There are those who claim that this is the first complete Bible, and that it dates from the 1st or 2nd Century AD.

This translation is so close to the KJV, that I must believe that the translator used the KJV for most of the translated text, modifying it to explain the Aramaic sentences. When Tyndale did his English translation (used in the KJV and Rheims-Douay) he stated that he kept the word order and sentence structure of the Aramaic, even though he did not know the language. I suppose that he hoped that one day someone would be able to explain all those strange sayings - And Lamsa has done it. ( )
