Damn straight. I've seen the paintings, blue eyes, blonde hair, hell, he could be in a rock band.
The church wouldn't lie about that, would they?


Then how do you explain the Hispanic first name?

George Babbitt: The lingua franca of the time was Greek as the middle east was entirely Hellenized following the Macedonian conquests and the Ptolemaic dynasties that sprang from them.

Uhhhhh subby. Last I checked everything I've ever read of Jesus' words was in English. I mean.... a little French when I was in Quebec.... but Jesus definitely mostly spoke English.

I think your 'aramaic' is an 'error you made it'.

Next you'll be telling me people used to speak Latin without any pigs around.

You and I both know that the common human language will end up being LOL cat speak.

It was an accident, he didn't let it go, it just fell through the holes in his hands.

Crudbucket: EsteeFlwrPot: No way. The gemarah is in aramaic and hundreds of thousands of people study it. How is that extinct?

I had the gemarah once, but some penicillin cleared it up.

I think I can sorta speak it?

I don't know what the words mean, but going to church every Sunday, I memorized HOW to say it, and would just sing along.

At least I think it was Aramaic.  It may have just been Assyrian, but in a different dialect.
