Rabbi complaining of Jews' widespread Aramaic use
peshitta_enthusiast Wrote:And how did the language fare after Jesus? In 1933, archaeologists discovered Aramaic inscriptions in a Jewish synagogue built around 245 AD in the Roman outpost of Dura Europos, located on the Euphrates River in modern Syria. They have since uncovered Aramaic writing in more than 20 synagogues across the Holy Land. Clearly, Jews continued to speak the language. And they did so in such numbers that Hebrew scholars felt the pressure of Aramaic competition: third-century Rabbi Yohanan insisted Jews should speak only Hebrew, as "the angels do not know Aramaic."

Why do you think the article says:

Inscriptions in churches across the Holy Land attest to this???scholars have even found early Aramaic copies of the Bible translated from the Greek Septuagint

It seems illogical to think that the Peshitta Tanakh was a translation from the Septuagint rather than the Hebrew!
