Eastern vs. Western dialects of 1st century Aramaic
Nice link, Jeremy! I love hearing the different American dialects of English.

At the risk of repeating myself, I want to restate this very important point about what we have to deal with in the Greek Primacist camp:

Quote:The fact that the GNT is written in a single dialect of Greek doesn't bother anyone. Never mind that none of the Apostles had this as their native tongue. However.... merely suggest that the New Testament might have been written in Aramaic, and suddenly they get very picky, and their requirements change - it must be EXACTLY the same Aramaic dialect the Apostles spoke at the time. (a single dialect, too. Never mind Luke was a Syrian, and Paul was from Tarsus in modern day Turkey.)
