Is Aramaic like this?...in it's various dialects, and if not now, perhaps back then?

Shlama Akhi Chuck,

Aramaic is like this in all of its modern dialects. And it certainly was back then as well.

Today there is a modern "koine" in Neo-Aramaic, a more or less standardized version just like modern American English. But just like modern English, there are variants spoken by communities when they are amongst each other. But when he crowd is mixed, the "koine" is employed.

People today can and do switch dialects depending on whose company they share. Christ and the Apostles certainly did this as well.
