Did Yeshua Converse with Nicodemus in Greek?
Many in modern times believe the Apostolic Scriptures (New Testament) were written in Hebrew or Aramaic. Yet, the manuscript evidence points to Greek as the original language. In this fascinating article, Rob Vanhoff looks at John 3 for clues. Yeshua was an up and coming teacher, and Nicodemus was “the Teacher of Israel,” and thus the language in which they conversed seems obvious. Moreover, the language of the text actually gives us some striking answers to the question of what language they were speaking because the word play only “works” if they were speaking Greek.
