The Peshitta of Deutero-Isaiah includes several passages relevant to the question of the faith of the translator: Jewish or Christian? There are inconsistencies: some differences between MT and P suggest a Christian or messianic nuance; one blunts an anti-Jewish phrase; in another an opportunity to introduce a Christian theme is resisted. The cumulative weight of examples suggests Christian input. The inconsistency could be explained by postulating a Jewish-Christian translator who attempted to play fair by his Vorlage, putting his own convictions and religious literature to the back of his mind, but occasionally failed.
