This is correct information, but how is it revelevant to Unveiled Isis?
The Aramaic-speaking Church of the East still excludes the above books,
except James. They also exclude 3 John. The Aramaic Peshitta text
omits the greetings from Babylon at the end of 1 Peter, but this is
Christian history or doctrinal discussion, not theosophy.

Are you able to check the sources that Blavatsky mentions in "Isis"?

Your postings do not make this clear (to me). Others seem to be helping
you though, so I will remain in the background!
