Jesus spoke in Galilean Aramaic or any other dialects?
Shlama all,

@Brother Steve Caruso:

when I read your article such as:

Quote:The Syriac Peshitta is not
the "original Aramaic New Testament."

There several several Syriac versions prior to it, and Syriac itself is a dialect that did not crystalize until around 200 AD and did not become a major literary dialect until 400 AD

My question is:
1. What's the major literary dialect until around 200 AD? Galilean Aramaic? <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

and you wrote at I quote such as:

Quote:Early Galilean Aramaic, the mother tongue of Jesus, is a language that has all but fallen into obscurity.

Quote:Sadly, in the 600s AD with the rise of the first Patriarchal Caliphate, Galilean was quickly supplanted as the everyday language in Galilee by Arabic, and the linguistically ?orphaned? Western, Galilean texts soon fell into the hands of Eastern Aramaic-speaking scribes for preservation.

Quote:As these scribes transmitted and re-copied these texts over the next thousand years, they were amazed at how many ?errors? they found in them. They took it upon themselves to freely correct the spelling and grammar mistakes wherever they came across them. At the time, they did not realize that most of these ?errors? were not mistakes at all, but were proper Galilean Aramaic.

From the information above it seems to me that you want to say that the 'proper dialect' at the life time of Jesus and His disciples was the only one 'dialect' that is 'Galilean dialect' rather than 'multi-dialects' (forgive me if I'm wrong here). <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
