All of the early Roman Catholic Church "Fathers" attest to the authoring of Matthew in the "Hebrew dialect." Some people say that the "Hebrew dialect" must be Hebrew. Several Hebrew versions of Matthew have been found (mainly the DuTillet and the Shem Tob) but it seems that most of the evidence points towards Matthew being written in Chaldee Aramaic (the "Hebrew dialect" of Aramaic).

Let's take a look:

The Beatitudes (5:3-12)- Pure poetry, lost in the Greek manuscripts.

The Lord's Prayer (6:9b-13)- Another beautiful poem to God, rhyming only in Aramaic.

Will Not Taste Death Before They See (16:27-28)- (NEW!) To misquote: "Did Jesus lie? Was He dumb? Are there 2000 year-old disciples? No 2nd Comming?"

Antics With "Eunuchs" (19:12)- Where did these eunchs come from?

A "Camel" Through a Needle's Eye (19:24)- Strange imagery that made more sense the Aramaic.

Simon "The Leper" (26:6)- What is a Leper doing in the middle of the city?
