3 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 1 PrayingPraying

Member Comments:
Thank you for writing Mr. Robb. Your view on this subject is very interesting and I agree with you. I find it a bit hard to believe the locals back in the day would be fluent in three languages. I would be hard pressed to just survive. From other articles I have read, the book of Matthew seemed purposely targeted to Jews. Makes sense there would be a Hebrew manuscript somewhere. Keeep up the great work, may our awesome God bless you richly.

1 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ PrayingPraying

Comments: Good article, J.L. I heard that there as some claims that there is some new evidence implying that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew. I have not done enough research to come to any conclusion on this myself. But, you make a great point, if quacks like duck, why not.

That being said, it is definitely important to understand the context in which the New Testament was written, including Jesus' immediate audience and the fact that Jesus Himself came out of a Jewish (Hebrew) heritage.

A book I recently came across provides some insight to understanding Jesus' words seen in light of his Jewish context (as the title obviously explains), "New Light on the Difficult Words of Jesus: Insights from His Jewish Context" by David Bivin.

4 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ PrayingPraying

Comments: I'm betting that a MS of the New Testament letters found in Hebrew would be so close to what we have to day, as to be insignificant.

Thanks you for the book reference. I will definitely go to Amazon in a sec and order.

In my book series The End, I am completing Part 5 (at the proofer) and have a scene where an earthquake in Jerusalem opens up new archaeology sources and several New Testament books are discovered, originals and in Hebrew. Three languages? I have trouble with one.
