Why does Hebrew and Greek appear in Pilatos' sign?
Burning one Wrote:Shlama,

a possibility i've pondered for the "Hebrew" on the sign is that it actually means "Aramaic." the reason being that oft-times in the Gospels when the text calls something "Hebrew," the word used (like a proper name of a person or place) is distinctly Aramaic - not what we think of as Hebrew. this tells us immediately that the word Hebrew could indeed stand in for Aramaic, at least to the minds of the 1st century believers. soooo, it is just a possibility for the sign. i don't have a problem with it being Hebrew, mind you, but i have considered it could be referencing Aramaic.

Chayim b'Moshiach,

Since we were on the subject of beer in another thread, this reminds me of the Foster's Lager commercial - 'Haw ta speeek Awstraleean'. Of course, it's English. But locals can refer to it as "Australian."
