Which Language did Jesus Speak (Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek?)
The Bible clearly states that the Paul spoke to them in Hebrew and not Aramaic. This got me thinking about a book I had been meaning to read but had not gotten around to it yet. I read through much of it today and found it fascinating. It is a premium module at theWord.net, but it is only $3.95. Doug presents compelling evidence that Jesus and the apostles actually spoke Hebrew and not Aramaic. This is confirmed by scripture and Josephus. He presents the historical, scriptural, and linguistic evidence that the primary language of Jesus was Hebrew and not Aramaic as is commonly believed today.
