Decoding the Language of Jesus
Most scholars believe that Jesus spoke Aramaic due to the evidence found in the New Testament and in other ancient sources. Important spiritual truths can be found in certain of the Aramaic words and phrases used by Jesus Christ (Yeshua Meshikha in Aramaic) in the Holy Bible. Aramaic is still spoken by certain Christian groups in the Middle East and is the language of the Assyrian Church of the East, the Syrian Orthodox Church and has an important legacy that has been largely forgotten in the West.
