Your question seems to be referring to: And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. - Acts 4:12 ESV Which in context is referring to the name given in verse 10: let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, ...

There is a plethora of evidence that Hebrew was a living language in the Land at the time of Christ and used by the common people. It is called Mishnaic Hebrew in the grammars and encyclopedias. Mishnaic Hebrew was very well known in the first century and was distinguished from Aramaic in such works as the Letter of Aristeas and Josephus. See below for more ...

By being made in the image of God, God granted man one of his attributes- namely the ability to communicate. As a God in communion and relationship with himself ("let us create man in our image Gen 1.26) the power of speech and language would have been understood to merely be part of that Imago Dei.

Since there's no explanation of how that worked, one can only infer from a lack of detail that within this "breath" came all the necessary components that Adam needed for living, including speech. Gen 2:7 (ESV) ...then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into ...

Whilst most people on this site have dismissed this question as silly, it is in fact very profound. The Hebrew language is unique among all language that exist or have ever existed in that it has several distinct layers of meaning. It is, linguistically speaking, a Semitic language like Aramaic and Arabic (among several), but no other language in this ...

A bit of sarcasm from our Lord: "And he said to them: 'You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!'" (Mark 7:9 NIV). This is perhaps more ironic than sarcastic, but it contains at least a tinge of sarcasm. Put differently, "Hey, nice going, guys. You've just set aside God's word and replaced it ...
