Languages in Jesus’ Time

New Testament scholar Darrell Bock gives us his usual scholarship by bringing attention to an article in a scholarly journal about the languages spoken in Israel during the ministry of Jesus. [Unfortunately, the link had to be omitted due to a malware report from the site.]

Summary: Jesus and his disciples probably spoke both Aramaic and Greek, though the former was most common. Hebrew was used less.
