Q&A

Was Matthew’s Gospel first written in Aramaic or Hebrew?

Catholic Answers Staff  •  8/4/2011

Question:

Is there any truth to the claim that Matthew&#039;s Gospel was originally written in Hebrew or Aramaic, not Greek? A Fundamentalist I know, who insists Matthew wrote originally in Greek, argues that there&#039;s no evidence in favor of the idea that his Gospel was written first in Aramaic, because there&#039;s no extant Aramaic original.
