Coffee and Theology Podcast: Episode 2 – Aramaic Sayings in the Gospel of Mark (Part 1)

We’re at it again! Episode two of Coffee and Theology is here, and we’re talking about code-switching.

On a day to day basis Jesus spoke in Aramaic, yet of all the words he spoke less than a handful are recorded by Mark in their original form. Why not translate these words into Greek as he did everywhere else? Why would Mark take the time to preserve these words in their original language?

Well, we looked it up and this is what we found… at least the first half of it.
