Thanks East I had a hunch there would be another option there. So if anyone got Aramaic. I'll give a point for that, let me know.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone? New Thread
15 for me thanks, Zico.

I have no issue with your answers of Greek, Hebrew and Latin. But having checked (only because of your comment) it seems that John used the Greek word Hebraisti which some claim in the way it was used did not mean "in Hebrew" but was a word that described a local Aramaic dialect.

So you may wish to award a point for Aramaic instead of Hebrew
Me I had Latin Greek and Hebrew
