This translation is made from the Book of Genesis in the Ancient Aramaic language from the oldest manuscripts copied by hand and passed on by the original scribes and monks of the Ancient Church of the East of the 1st Century of Christianity. It clarifies some of the biggest misconceptions about the Old Testament regarding Creation, Adam and Eve and the Coming of the Messiah.

My translation of the Old Testament also utilizes the cuneiform manuscripts discovered by archeologists in Mesopotamia in the late 19th Century AD. The Ashurai king Ashurbanipal, during his 7th Century BC reign out of Nineveh, sent out emissaries to the southern region, the land of Shin'ar (Sumer) and Chaldee (Babylonia) in search of the ancient epics such as the Epic of Creation, which included the story of Adam and Eve, the Epic of Gilgamesh, which included the story of Noah and the Flood. He had them translated in the modern Ashurit language of his day, however, the originals were three thousand years older but also in cuneiform. Interestingly the stories had been preserved essentially the same. Ironically, by the time of Jesus Christ, the Scriptures recorded during the Babylonian Captivity five centuries before had become so narrowly interpreted that the scribes and Pharisees failed to recognize Jesus as the Messiah prophesied by all those millennial religious records. Today, both Judaism and the Catholic Church have realized the contribution of the cuneiform tablets of the Ashurai to the understanding of the roots of the Bible. The archeologists Sir Henry Austen Layard and Hormuzd Rassam discovered the Ashurbanipal Library intact in Nineveh and crated the 50,000 tablets to the British Museum in London. They are the pride of the British Museum, together with the oldest Ancient Aramaic New Testament which dates back to the 4th Century AD.
