Qnuma, Kyana, Parsopa & Ethutha

Apr-02-2001 at 10:37 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Shlama Akhi Yaqub w'Kulkhon,

James, you and I had discussed the meaning of these words as they apply to the doctrines of Christology and the Trinity, as formulated by the Church of the East.

I wanted to share the following exposition from Mar Bawai the Great (Book of the Union, 6th century), in the Aramaic followed by the English translation, hope this helps to shed more light on the terms 0mwnq , 0nyk , 0pwcrp and Fwty0 :

0hl0d 0rb 0xy4m wh dx
(One is Mshikha, the Son of God)
Nynyk Nyrtb fk Nm dygs
(Woshipped by all in two Natures Nynyk)
0b0 Nm dyly htwhl0bd
(In His Godhead begotten of the Father)
0nbz Nm L9l 0yrw4 fd
(Without beginning, before all time)
Myrm Nm dyly htw4n0bd
(In His humanity, born of Maryam)
0dyxm 0rgpb 0nbz Mlw4b
(In the fullness of time, in a body united)
0m0 Nyk Nm htwhl0 f
(Neither His Godhead <was> from the nature Nyk of the mother)
0b0 Nyk Nm htw4n0 fw
(Nor His humanity <was> from the nature Nyk of the Father)
Jwhymwnqb 0n^yk Nyry=n
(Preserved <are> the Natures 0n^yk in their own Qnumeh Jwhymwnq)
Fwrb 0dxd 0pwcrp dxb
(In one Person 0pwcrp of one Sonship)
Fwhl0 hyty0d Nky0w
(And as the Godhead is)
Fwty0 0dx 0m^wnq Flt
(Three Qnumeh 0m^wnq, One Essence Fwty0)
0rbd htwrb hyty0 Nkh
(Likewise the Sonship of the Son)
0pwcrp dx Nynyk Nyrtb
(Is in two Natures Nynyk one Person 0pwcrp)

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
