I don't for one moment believe that all the villagers
in Galilee in 31CE spoke Greek to one another all the time
but I am curious to know how those who think Greek was quite so prevalent
explain the Aramaic literature that has survived.  What kind of people do
they think produced it and do they think that when they weren't composing
Aramaic texts they reverted to Greek?
