To Ibn Ismail

I greet you in the precious Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, the author and distributor of peace and I wish you His peace.

It is most likely that the Lord Jesus Christ's primary language was Aramaic, it also being likely that He understood Hebrew and Greek. These three languages being the languages in which the Bible was written; with the Lord Jesus Christ's command to His followers to take His good, good news of hope, forgiveness and life in His Name to all nations, it being the work of Bible translators to translate the good, good news into all the world's languages, and the joyful task of the Lord's followers to take this good, good news into all the world, giving people everywhere the chance to read or hear this good news, the best news that a human being will ever hear, or can ever hear, and thus the opportunity to respond to it.

The Bible is available online at http://www.biblegateway.com and may be read in many different languages, including many different English translations.

The New Testament (the primary source of reliable information about the Lord Jesus Christ), is available online in Aramaic at http://aramaicnewtestament.net/

Please tell me what you mean by the "Bible (original version)."

With kind regards and best wishes, you're going to live forever Ibn Ismail, please choose your address, please choose life in Jesus' Name.

Lactantius Jr
