The language of Jesus

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) program, Foreign Correspondent, presents a report from Matt Brown on the efforts in Malula, Syria to preserve Aramaic.

My favourite lines from the piece, from a shepherd to his sheep:

Come to the meadow, come to drink and dance. … Come here, you blonde. You are prettier than a bird.
