( Acts 26:14 KJV ) “And when we were all fallen to the Earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou ME? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.”!!
Jerusalem, Israel – Pope Francis and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traded words on Monday over the language spoken by Yeshua – Jesus two millennia ago.
( Exodus 20:3 KJV ) “Thou shalt have No other gods before ME.”!!
( Joshua 24:15 KJV ) “And if it seem evil unto you to Serve the LORD, Choose you this day whom ye will Serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and My House, We Will Serve the LORD.”!!
( Deuteronomy 5:7 KJV ) “Thou shalt have None other gods before ME.”!!
Pope Francis carried out a headline-grabbing three-day tour of the Holy Land, visiting refugees, hugging clerics and honoring the victims of the Holocaust. But perhaps the most interesting moment of the trip came during an exchange with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a meeting in Jerusalem. The Israeli premier and the pope found occasion for a slight historical quibble.
“Yeshua – Jesus was here, in this land. He spoke Hebrew,” Netanyahu told the pope, through an interpreter. “Aramaic,” the pontiff immediately corrected. “He spoke Aramaic, but he knew Hebrew,” offered Netanyahu. You can watch the full exchange below ( it takes place around the one minute-mark ). Netanyahu is addressing the Spanish-speaking, Argentine pope in Hebrew, which is translated by the interpreter into Italian.
Reaction on social media was swift, with many siding with the Pope’s correction. Reza Aslan, author of a recent, best-selling popular history of Yeshua – Jesus, chimed in:
correction. Reza Aslan, author of a recent, best-selling popular history of Yeshua – Jesus Christ, chimed in: Reza Aslan;
And no. Yeshua – Jesus Christ didn’t speak Hebrew. He may have understood it but it wasn’t primary spoken language. He spoke Aramaic.
Reza Alsan is NOT a Christian at all, he is a Potty Mouthed islamic muslim that Slanders Yeshua – Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible!!
Thus; Reza Alsan is a Pathetic Pathological Liar, spreading hate with his tweets and his un-Christian Books!!
Neither Netanyahu nor the pope was wrong, but the question is a matter of emphasis. There’s scholarly consensus that the historical Yeshua – Jesus Christ principally spoke Aramaic, the ancient Semitic language which was the everyday tongue in the lands of the Levant and Mesopotamia. Hebrew was more the preserve of clerics and religious scholars, a written language for Holy Scriptures. Even so, certain portions of the Old Testament are written in Aramaic, a sign of its prevalence in Jewish antiquity. ( There remain those, particularly devout Christians, who dispute Aramaic’s primacy at the time .)
Aramaic and Hebrew are from the same family; the former’s script likely informed both written Hebrew and Arabic. Like most languages, Aramaic spread through centuries of conquest, spurred by the invasions of the Assyrian and later Persian empires. A version of it is spoken by communities of Chaldaean Christians in Iraq and Syria. Last year, when a historic Christian town near Damascus fell to Brack Hussein Obama’s Supported Syrian rebels, Western media warned of Islamists planting their flag among those who still speak the language of Yeshua – Jesus Christ.
In the age of the historical Yeshua – Jesus Christ, Aramaic was confronted by new imperial realities: The whole of the Levant, including Judaea, the ancient province that contains Jerusalem and Bethlehem, was part of the Roman empire. The historical Yeshua – Jesus Christ probably did not speak Latin. The lingua franca through much of the eastern Roman world was Greek, and he could have picked up a few words of that Mediterranean tongue from traders plying its caravan routes. The Holy Gospels carried down by tradition were written in Greek — a crucial link that cemented Christianity’s place in the Western world, via the eastern Roman empire.
( Psalms 122:6-9 KJV ) “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For My brethren and companions’ sakes, I Will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I Will Seek thy good.”!!
Netanyahu likes to make historical allusions. In speeches, he frequently mentions his possession of a near 3,000-year-0ld golden signet ring, found by archaeologists near the Western Wall. It is inscribed “Netanyahu” — “That’s my last name,” he reminded everyone at a speech at the U.N. General Assembly in 2011. Invoked this way, the Israeli premier was explaining his ( and Israel’s ) unbreakable bond to the city of Jerusalem, whose geographic east is contested by the Palestinians. But Netanyahu’s father was born in Warsaw with the last name Mileikowsky and only adopted Netanyahu upon moving to Israel. Identities, like languages, are malleable things.
Okay for a Brief: Yeshua – Jesus Christ is the SON of GOD our FATHER which art in HEAVEN!! Yeshua – Jesus Christ Spoke Hebrew and He could Speak any Language of the entire Earth, because He was Not of this Earth, but, from the HEAVENLY FATHER God Above!! Thus: Yeshua – Jesus Christ Could Speak any Language in all the Universe because GOD CREATED HIM!!
