"Timothy" variant pronunciation
#4
Hi,

Timothy lived in a 'multi-cultural' situation.
He is being called a son of an Aramaic father.
Probably the facts were complicate.
Syria, as a former Greek colony, might have many Greek descendants who were half-Aramaic-half-Greek.

Besides, I have been trying to find historical evidence of the social relationship and attitude between Greek and in former Seleucid territory living people.
It might explain why the ARamaic Bible has Timothy as son of an Aramaic Father but in the Greek Bible as from a Greek father.
