Here’s a fine review/response to R. Scott Gleaves’ book Did Jesus Speak Greek? by my friend Will Ross. Will is a fine Septuagintalist, working on a Cambridge PhD at present, and has very helpful things—in agreement and in dispute—to say on this book, which revisits the debate over the language(s) which were around in first-century Palestine and (thus) the probable language(s) which Jesus himself spoke. Well worth reading.
