086-094 Do You Know What Jesus Really Said? May 01, 2014

Aramaic was the language Jesus actually spoke to his disciples and the crowds. Since the four gospels were written in Greek, then translated into Latin and eventually into English and other modern languages, we may have lost some of what Jesus actually meant. As you explore the words of Jesus in Aramaic, you will have many surprises. You will see that it's almost like a "hidden gospel" that has been finally revealed to us. It may even seem, in some cases, as though we have never before really understood what Jesus actually said or meant. *CFD: Theology.
