    Which language did Jesus use predominately - Hebrew or Aramaic?

    Jesus was conversant with both these languages and probably others as well, but which one did he use most often in conversation with his disciples, friends and family?

    Aramaic was His conversation language.  It was used in community during His lifetime.  Hebrew was His Religious language for studying the Torah and for Sabbath and such.  I don't remember where I learned that, but that is my Understanding.

    I believe he spoke Aramaic. It was the language of his day.

    Aramaic was the predominant language of Jesus, although He was conversant in all languages being God.
