Obviously, the cam- paign itself was a historical event, but there is no solid evidence of a siege of Jerusalem. In the vast majority of cases in which the Bible tells of conversation between Israelites and non-Israelites, there is no discussion of what language they spoke or how they understood each other.

On the relationship between the text of Kings and Isaiah and that of Chronicles, the general consensus is that the Chronicler simply reworked and abbreviated the Kings text in order to make it it his literary and theological aims. See S. For example, see W. This, for example, is the opinion of E. How Did Rabshakeh Know Yehudit? Rather surprisingly, very few of the medieval or modern commentators even brought up the question of how Rabshakeh knew the language of Judah. See, for example, the comments made by V. On the use of language as a marker of identity in the Bible, see W.

See, for example, T. For example, J. Clark , That a senior Assyrian court oicial would know the language of Judah is indeed surprising, as are the ar- guments that Rab-shakeh raises, that show his profound knowledge of events within Judah and Jerusalem. It is not impossible that Rab-shakeh was a native Aramean or even Israelite, of the second or third generation of the exile of Israel.

Day, R. Gordon, and H. Williamson Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, , 43— However, they actually use this quotation out of context. The passage then quotes the opinion of Rabbi Judah in the name of Rabbi Shmuel, that if one hears blasphemy from an idol worshiper, he does not have to tear his clothes.

Hebrew language

And we now know that the Assyrian Empire had a systematic policy of using the abilities of skilled deportees from its conquered lands, putting them to service in its military, administration, and even in the royal court. We have already mentioned the Aramean sage Ahiqar. Over three decades have passed since Bustenay Oded published his ground- breaking work on the mass deportation policies of the Assyrian kings. In this study, Oded examined deportations, not just from Israel, but from all the lands of the Empire. The main points that are relevant for our purposes are as follows: while deportations were carried out by several Assyrian kings, the system as a whole was perfected by Tiglath-pileser III, Sargon II, and Sennacherib.

They were used not only as punishment for rebellious provinces but also as a preven- tive measure, in order to weaken potentially rebellious areas. Only in two cases are the deportees identiied as slaves. In the methodological section of this book, Oded points out the large number of deportees of Israelite origin who can be identiied in the inscriptions by their theophoric names, by speciic mention of their families or their origins, and by additional clues.

Oded singles out people from Samaria who served in the Assyrian military. As such, and perhaps See also I. Galil and M. Weinfeld Leiden: Brill, , 91—; R. Harold Ellens London: T. Clark, , 98— Some scholars consider the speech and the entire story in which it is set to be a free composition of the author of Kings or of one of his sources and mostly debate the date of its com- position, its relationship to Isaiah 36—37, and its signiicance within both of these books.

Do you think that mere words are strategy and power for war? On whom do you now rely, that you have rebelled against me? See, you And yet, like similar speeches in the writings of Thucydides, the biblical text does not contain the ipsissima verba of the speaker. However in v. This is a critical point. As an Israelite from the Northern Kingdom, Rab- shakeh would have no special sympathy for the Jerusalem temple.

Hebrew and Aramaic -- Languages of First-Century Israel

Even Sa- maria, as far as we know, had no central royal temple. For instance, Methuselah Genesis is Hebrew for "his death brings" The flood occurred the year that he died. It is not until we come to Noah's grandchildren that we find names that are of a language other than Hebrew. According to the Biblical record of names, Adam and his descendants spoke Hebrew.

While the Hebrew Bible may not refer to the language of the Hebrews as "Hebrew," we do know that their language was in fact "Hebrew," as attested to in the many inscriptions discovered in the land of Israel from this period of time.

After the time of King David, the nation of Israel split into two kingdoms, Israel in the north and Judah in the south. During their captivity in Babylon, the Hebrews continued to speak the Hebrew language, but instead of writing the language with the Hebrew script often referred to as Paleo-Hebrew , they adopted the Aramaic square script to write the Hebrew language and the Hebrew script was used on a very limited basis such as a few Biblical scrolls and coins.

When the Hebrews returned to the land of Israel, around BC, it was believed that the Hebrews had abandoned the Hebrew language and instead spoke the Aramaic language, the language of their captors in Babylon. The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church , in its first edition in , stated; " [Hebrew] ceased to be a spoken language around the fourth century B. One of the most compelling evidences for the continued use of Hebrew into the 2nd Century A.

This letter, along with many others, was written in Hebrew, establishing the fact that Hebrew was still the language of the Jewish people, even into the second century AD. Because of the overwhelming evidence of Hebrews continued use, the Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church , in its third edition in now, states; " [Hebrew] continued to be used as a spoken and written language in the New Testament period.
