It is generally agreed by historians that Jesus and his disciples
primarily spoke Aramaic (Jewish Palestinian Aramaic), the common language
of Judea in the first century AD, most likely a Galilean dialect
distinguishable from that of Jerusalem.

Actually, everybody except you (and Arty-come-lately) knew
it was parody. That's because most people can recognize satire
when they see it. It all started with this article, from the guess where -- the Babylon Bee --
and you fell for it, hook, line, and anvil:
Just like you fell for that other piece of Babylon Bee satire, the one about Saint Paul's
King James Bible being up for sale on eBay. Remember that one?
Still not getting it? Here are some other choice Babylon Bee articles:

Yep, you're that one guy in the room who doesn't get the joke.

And AGAIN! Geez, Duke, you just now read that link, where it said about your church:
Additionally, submitting any competitor baptism
will be worth an automatic entry into the Vatican's
upcoming Come Home Sweepstakes, where one lucky winner
will win a Treasury of Merit shopping spree, plus an
exclusive offer of absolution.
While accepting competitor baptisms is new to the
Vatican, the push for savings-friendly programs isn't.
Last year, Pope Francis announced the Church would
match or beat the penance assigned by any Orthodox
Church, which was followed by its popular One
Confession For The Whole Year promotion.
and didn't catch on that something ... just wasn't quite serious?
Man oh man...
