     When Jesus lived here on earth He spoke Aramaic, the language common in Galilee then.  It was an old Semitic tongue, related to Hebrew.  It's considered traditionally as one language, but it may also be thought of as "a group of closely related languages." 
     Modern Aramaic is used today by scattered groups in Western Asia, including Christians, Jews and Muslims.  It's kept in the form of Syriac by certain Christians.  The Syriac pronunciation is presented here.
