I ran across a fascinating article about a small group of Christians who have preserved the Aramaic language that Jesus spoke.
Here is a an excerpt:
The Aramaic language of the earliest Christians lives on in the church services of a tiny village on the Turkish Cypriot side of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, where a hybrid dialect of Aramaic is commonly spoken by just 1,000 people who are striving to keep it alive.
The language is dying out, but the Maronites in Cyprus are trying to prevent it from being completely lost. I’m certainly rooting them on, as it would be a tragic loss if they failed.
