1 Corinthians Aramaic primacy doubted...
Shlama Akhi Distazo and DrawCloser,

That's an excellent point you made about the Alexandrian variant, DrawCloser - and we should list that in the forum as it's own proof of Aramaic primacy (where the two Greek texts are both drawn from the same Aramaic source).

If Paul wanted to use the word "Greek" specifically, there already is an Aramaic word specifically for that ethnic group ("Yonaye", from "Ionian") See Colossians 3:11 "There is neither Jew (Yehudaya) nor Gentile (Aramaya), Circumcision nor Uncircumcision, Greek (Yonaya) nor Barbarian (Barbaraya)....etc"

If Paul meant to say "Greek", specifically, he would say "Yonaya" like he did in Colossians 3:11, and not use the generic term for Gentile.
