I agree with Bivan, Blizzard, Grant, Loisy, Schonefield, Trimm, Minge, Segal, Dam, et al, that all raise the flag regarding the New Testament being originally written in Hebrew and NOT Greek or Aramaic. The Bible was written over approximately 1600 years in three different languages, on three different continents, by 40 different authors. However, their very good estimates. The original New Testament, certainly by far for the most part, was originally written in Aramaic and or Hebrew. Yet in the Bible the early Jews and Christians provide an account of themselves which is unparalleled, among religious groups of those times, in its wealth of detail. The following dates are not exact because we cannot be exactly sure to the very year on every book. Three of the writers: Matthew, Peter, and John were among the 12 disciples who walked with Christ during his earthly ministry. It is thought that he wrote his gospel around the middle of the AD 80’s. Therefore. The New Testament contains 27 different books written by nine different authors. The New Testament WAS originally written in Hebrew, as shall be shown. The third gospel of the New Testament was written by Luke, who was a doctor. He said that he had set out to write and orderly account of the events in Jesus’ life, and was originally writing to one person, Theophilus (Luke 1:1-4). If you but read the first 20 pages of this 400+ page writing, you should be fairly convinced to at least realize the subject deserves more research on your part. It was not originally Greek as… Greek was the leading written and spoken language of the eastern Mediterranean world when Rome ruled the world during the New Testament period. The first book of the New Testament is the Gospel according to Matthew, and this book was likely written in a window between 80 AD and 90 AD, although some claim that this time frame should be larger. The following table lists out the order of the books as they were written. He had not been a disciple of Jesus. Finally, New Testament documents—including the book of Revelation— speak of Jerusalem and the Jewish temple intact at the time they were written. Jesus promised his disciples that the Holy Spirit would bring all things to remembrance of what Jesus said and did. In Jesus’ days, this had become the language of the common people in the region around Israel, primarily due to the conquests of Alexander the Great. The New Testament, however, is written in a completely different language: Greek. Every author of the New Testament was Jewish except for Luke. Yes, that is correct!!! Old Testament Hebrew. The conventional sources of historical evidence (archaeological remains, written documents) provide few traces of the Old Testament story and none at all of the events described in the New Testament. Greek would be a language that many people could understand at that time. Indeed, it remained the dominant language, especially in the large cities of Alexandria, Antioch, etc., until after the Arab Muslim conquest, long after the time the Western Roman Empire fell in 476 A.D.
