Actually, it depends on what you mean by "tradition." I have seen a fairly
elaborate argument articulated for something very close to this notion. I'm
not saying I buy it, but it does show that at least someone holds such a
tradition. There is an e-list that has no relationship to B-Greek or
B-Hebrew, called B-Aramaic. It is hosted by SANJ, the Society for the
Advancement of Nazarene Judaism. They have put out a "Hebraic Roots" NT--an
English translation taken (supposedly) from Aramaic and Hebrew versions
instead of Greek. What that basically means is that they used an old Hebrew
manuscript of Matthew and a couple of Aramaic manuscripts of the same, but
resorted to the Syriac Peshitta for the rest of the NT. An abbreviated form
of the same argument that was posted in a multi-part series on their list is
articulated on their Web site: http://www.nazarene.net/hrv/index.htm
