Peter Ruckman contended that the Peshitta "contained the O. T. as it stands in the A.V. 1611, and the New Testament as it stands in the A. V. 1611" (Handbook of Manuscript Evidence, p. 79). KJV-only author William [or Bill] Bradley also claimed: "If you translate from the Peshitta into English, what you'll have in your hands is a King James Bible" (To All Generations, p. 52). Bradley also contended that the existing Peshitta manuscripts give “us a direct link from the King James Bible to the very handwritten documents of Paul, Peter, James, John and the rest” (p. 6). Donald Clarke contended that the Peshitta was "virtually the same Bible" as our English KJV (Bible Version Manual, pp. 19-20). KJV-only author Mickey Winter claimed that the KJV is "in harmony" with the Peshitta (KJV on Trial, p. 16). The Peshitta is placed on the KJV-only view's line of good Bibles or stream of the preserved text. Would an English translation of the Peshitta be the same as the KJV? Would KJV-only advocates accept an English translation of the Peshitta as being the word of God?
