God is much more interested in the language of the heart than the loudness or language of one's voice.

It is not so important really to know which language Yeshua actually spoke, it's HIS example of life that is most important

A little history for you ahmadzafire

Before the Babylonian captivity (586 B.C.), Hebrew - lit. Y'hudit (Jewish) 2Ki. 18:26 - was the language of the Jews (also known as Hebrews). The Law was written in Hebrew, the Temple services were conducted in Hebrew and the people spoke Hebrew. However, during the seventy years of captivity the people learned a new language - Aramaic (an eastern dialect of Aramaic later referred to as Hebrew, or the language of the Hebrews). When Alexander the Great conquered the region, he introduced Greek as the official language; later the Romans came and brought with them Latin. So by the time of Yeshua there were four major languages in use: Eastern Aramaic, (also known as Hebrew or the language of the Hebrews) which was the vernacular (common language); Hebrew, which the Law was written in; Greek, (Kione - common Greek as opposed to classical Greek) which was the official language for governmental purposes and Latin, which was the language of the Roman Legions.

LASTLY JESUS NEVER EVER CALLED GOD allah , Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters. Reliefs and votive bowls used in worship of the "daughters of Allah" have also been discovered. The three daughters, al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat are sometimes depicted together with Allah the Moon-god represented by a crescent moon above them. The archeological evidence demonstrates that the dominant religion of Arabia was the cult of the Moon-god. Scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god's name "Sin" is a part of such Arabic words as "Sinai," the "wilderness of Sin," etc. When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god. This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism. The fact that they were given such names by their pagan parents proves that Allah was the title for the Moon-god even in Muhammad's day.

The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God." The Moon-god was called al-ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad's father and uncle had Allah as part of their names.

Why is Allah never defined in the Qur'an? Why did Muhammad assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who Allah was?" Muhammad was raised in the religion of the Moon-god Allah. But he went one step further than his fellow pagan Arabs. While they believed that Allah, i.e. the Moon-god, was the greatest of all gods and the supreme deity in a pantheon of deities, Muhammad decided that Allah was not only the greatest god but the only god.

The Muslim's claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles is refuted by solid, overwhelming archeological evidence. Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult. It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god. As such, it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by all those who follow the Torah and Gospel.

The pagan Arabs worshipped the Moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the Moon-god called the Kabah; kissing the black stone; killing an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc

SO YOU SEE YOUR GOD AND THE TRUE HEAVENLY FATHER ARE NOT THE SAME , SO GET OFF THIS QUACKIE KICK allah and the CHRISTIAN GOD ARE ONE AND THE SAME. THATSNOTHING BUT HOG WASH

The fact that they were given such names by their pagan parents proves that Allah was the title for the Moon-god even in Muhammad's day.
