The Aramaic Dialect of Paul and Luke
Luke was from Antioch of Syria, so couldn't he have spoken the Syriac dialect of Aramaic? Paul was also from Tarsus of Turkey (the same country in which Edessa is in), but was raised in Jerusalem. When Paul spoke to the people in Acts 21:40, it is stated the he spoke in "Hebrew" (the Judean Aramaic dialect). The question is if Paul's Aramaic could have been a mix between Syriac (which his parents could have spoken) and Judean (in which he would have been schooled). I call this mixed dialect "Judeo-Syriac". What do you all think?
