The Language of God

To follow up on the previous post about which translation of the Bible Jesus used, now remember, the Gospels had not been written, nor even completely spoken! We used crossreferenced quotes matching the Jewish Scriptures to the Gospels and Paul, noting that there appears to be more that match the LXX than the Hebrew.

ALSO the Gospel writers possibly determined the answers to our results and surmises, i.e. since Matthew wrote primarily to Jewish Christians therefore used mainly Hebrew references.

NOW – I went in search of “The Language Jesus spoke” to try to determin whether this gives us any guide reguarding just what version of Himself – the WORD he used in his teaching. However the search engine ergo Googles sent me first of all, to many pages concerning the Language spoken by God. On one of them the writer stated that initially he, too, had gone in search of the languae spoken by the eartly Christ and had discovered the many questions regarding the Language of God.

  1. My big problem with this entire discussion (not yours, but the discussion behind if of which you refer) is: what does it matter? The Hebrew Scriptures that we are familiar with these days weren’t completely formulated until after the fall of Jerusalem, around 200AD, so even they do not reflect that which Jesus taught. The LXX was set in stone, so to speak, around 246BC.


    • Hi and hello, yes correct, the concept arose from an article I had read. I had in mind -Jesus read from scrolls as per the synagogue and Isaiah, therefore at least Jesus possessed some scripture to hand. perhaps he also had access to the same in the lXX. Whether these determined his teaching we do not know, neither whether subsequent Gospels did either.
