Re: Lamsa and Aramaic (puns again)

        Hello b-greekers

        the last time this came up I asked if anyone had seen a
        reliable study on the comparative incidence of wordgames
        (ie puns like John 15:2) in the recorded words of Christ
        as recorded in Greek vs a hypothetical Aramaic.

        I've only browsed one of Lamsa's books once but didn't see
        anything that seemed more than the natural "incidence of
        coincidence" ... have I missed the good stuff?

        surely someone has done comparative research on this?
