Interesting 10 Minute Video About Dead Languages

I always thought Hebrew and Greek had been essentially unchanged since ancient times that new words and phrases were added but language itself the same. Well nope. I never knew Modern Hebrew goes back to the 19th Century.

I knew Ancient Egyptian was dead. I am surprised Aramaic is not listed. When I have time I need to google why Jesus spoke Aramaic not Hebrew.

I feel so uneducated. My teacher in Graduate School was right we barely know a fraction of a fraction of one percent at best.
