The Aramaic in the "Passion of the Christ" movie
I know this may be a little late but I would like to ask if anyone knows or is familiar with the type of Aramaic that was used or employed in the 2004 movie - "Passion of the Christ" by Mel Gibson?? I mean did Mel use PRESENT DAY Aramaic in the movie or OLD Aramaic. Seems (if memory serves me correctly) that he used the Aramaic dialect that is nearly become extinct and which only a few thousand speak (today) up in the Palestinian mountains. But I have a hunch I am off base on this. Was the Aramaic that was spoken in the movie the same Aramaic that they speak today in Palestine?? Tks

Take care,
