    We've all been too serious lately. (at least I have) so lets have a New Testament fun thread that everyone can participate in. Let's discuss words from other languages that crossed over into the NT Greek mss.

    First up. Persian words. Anyone got any?

    Don't have a Strong's handy, but isn't "eloi, eloi, lama, sabacthani?" (sp.) all Aramaic?
    And also "Abba"?
