Linguistics 101 - Languages and Dialects
Dean Dana Wrote:Shalma lukhon,

I can assure you Dave, for myself, as a person formally trained in rabbinic schools from birth through high school, that for western Christians the concept of "saved" and "salvation" is foreign to the ears of Jews. That???s why, to this day, Jews scratch their heads trying to figure out what Christians mean by "save, saved and salvation". The term "life" is far more prevalent, both idiomatically and theologically.

Thanks for that Dean!
It seems to make sense to me. To use the word life (or a derivatiive of it) seems to convey this much clearer IMHO.
