>>53150788 >>53148781 Latin was spoken exclusively among the Roman government and military in the Eastern provinces. Koine Greek was spoken mostly by upper class Hellenized-Jews, or wealthy merchants, in first century Judea.
I seriously doubt he knew Greek, and he definitely didn't know Latin.
He was fluent in speaking Aramaic, though semi-literate at best. Maybe he knew some common Hebrew words from the scriptures, but at the time Aramaic was rapidly eclipsing Hebrew by number of speakers.
Koiné Greek was not a language of higher class and merchants only. In the east side of the Empire, it was a lingua franca. Notice how some of Jesus' apostles and followers (all of them peasants and fishermen) even had Greek names. Judea was very helenized (which is explained in the Maccabi books).
