I was thinking that Bob Lindsey's book was concerning the Hebrew translation
of Luke. I know that his thesis was that Luke was the first of the Synoptics
written primarily because, he claimed, it was the easiest to translate into
Hebrew and was much closer to the Aramaic spoken in the early church. I
recall Bob, a SBC Missionary to Israel, eating lunch in Tiberius (St. Peter's
fish) with my group from NOBTS and answering questions about his thesis. I
was unconvinced by the thesis, but enjoyed very much the company of Bob. He
was quite fluent in modern Hebrew.
