For shame, Noel, as now you are out and out lying, which is unbecoming a religious calling toward truth and revelation.

First, the entire New Testament was written in Greek and not Aramaic.

Second, you are pulling out of your you know what the claim that Joseph in Matthew is Mary's father and not Joseph the husband as it clearly states. This is to make the narrative work for you when it clearly doesn't work.

Third, if Matthew gets the story wrong, then the Bible is not a divine source of knowledge and it is all questionable.

Your faith has blinded you from even the possibility of striving for the truth, which is sad.

Got other fish to fry so moving on.

Cheers!
