Paul - would he choose Greek over Aramaic?
Shlama Akhi Chris,

That little commentary is TNT !! <!-- s:bomb: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bomb.gif" alt=":bomb:" title="The Bomb" /><!-- s:bomb: --> <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
I'm thinking about all of those places where 'Jews and Arameans' was replaced with 'Jews and Greeks' in the GNT. Also I remember one author who I used to consider very learned who called the Greek Old Testament 'original.' Talk about going way too far!!
I guess they are trying to be consistent when you look at it from one perspective. Think of this statement-"Our English Bible was originally written by Semitic peoples in the Hebrew tongue but by the time these same Semitic peoples composed their New Testament they got so overwhelmed by the superiority of the Greek language, customs and theology that they all threw their hands up in the air simultaneously and in one accord and said 'What the heck!, 'Let's try something new,' 'Our ancestors were all just a bunch of old fogeys who didn't know what they were talking about let's just allow ourselves to be totally inundated with this Indo-European influence!', 'Let's totally forget about all of our Afro-Asiatic moorings like it was all a bad dream and allow ourselves to be altogether supplanted by these foreigners.'" ... NOT!!! <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: -->
