Netseran Aramaic

From Nazarani
Jump to: navigation, search

Netseran Aramaic (Aramaic: נצרניית ארמיתא Pronunciation: Aramitha Netseranayit) refers to the living language used in the Holy Offering and other services of the Nazarani Church. It is a distinct dialect of Aramaic, which is very closely related to and indeed a descendant of the Galilean dialect which was spoken by Yeshue and His apostles.

It is impossible to speak Galilean to-day, because the language does not include words for the majority of the things in our day-to-day lives and experiences; thus the purpose of the Netseran Language Institute is to train a whole generation of fluent speakers of Netseran Aramaic, as inheritors of the language of Yeshue, and by extension of the common Aramaic heritage which all the followers of Yeshue share with one another.

The idea of a single language for all of Yeshue’s followers is not new, but has been on ongoing theme since the apostle Saul of Tarsus told the followers of Yeshue living at Corinth:

Yet, I beg you my brothers, in the Name of our Master Yeshue the [Anointed / Messiah], that among you there may be one language for everyone, in order that there not be division among you, but rather a [perfect / mature] [mind / thought] and single [thought / consciousness / conception] for everyone.<ref>1st Corinthians 1:10, from The Bible Translated by Hadrian Mar Elijah Bar Israel)
