But was Luke originally written in aramaic?

having been written to Theophilus, and considering some of the things that are included in Luwqa's account that are not found in the others, i am of the opinion that the intended recipient was actually the Jewish high priest who was named Theophilus and lived during that particular time. too much lines up regarding content and timeframe to make any better sense otherwise. history bears out the existence of a high priest with this name who lived during this period, and who was likely a Sadducee, so that all the "spiritual" and "afterlife" passages found in Luwqa's account make even more sense for being included in effort to show this denier the reality of what awaits man, especially if he would place his hope in Messiah.

just my thoughts.

Chayim b'Moshiach,
