Aramaic is alive and (almost) well


The New York Times features the Syrian town of Malula where the language of Jesus, Aramaic, is still spoken.  The Times article also includes the history of Malula’s beginnings, which legend attributes to a young woman who was converted under Paul’s ministry, and then fled her family’s persecution.  The article is an interesting resource for both study and sermon illustration.  Hope you enjoy it!
