Please don’t try to BS me and others on this thread. You are way out of your league.

The Mass was instituted at the Last Supper. That is NOT the same thing as saying the Mass is a repetition or re-presentation of the Last Supper. The Catholic Encyclopedia doesn’t make the claim you want to pretend for it, because it isn’t true. The Mass is the unbloody re-presentation of the Sacrifice of Calvary. At the Mass, it’s Calvary at which we’re made mystically present — not the upper room.

The vernacular of 1st century Jerusalem was Aramaic. Greek was widely understood; Latin was a more recent arrival and not as widely known. Hebrew was a language of scripture, study, and worship; it had not been a spoken language for centuries — evident from the crucified Jesus’s Hebrew quotation of the psalm, which was widely misunderstood by casual onlookers at Golgotha.

Keep it clean and skip the personal insults, O.K.? Good.

Luke certainly knew what was the Hebrew language and calls the language Paul used to speak to a crowd of Jews “Hebrew”. (Acts 21:40, 22:2)

“Hebrew was a language of scripture, study, and worship; it had not been a spoken language for centuries”.

Evidently not so since even Asian Jews in that crowd understood what Paul was saying.

Aramaic expressions seem common enough but no one confused Aramaic with Hebrew.

Jesus was quoting the Aramaic Targum -- the Hebrew is Eli, Eli, lamah azavtani? I would think the misunderstanding was more due to inability to hear clearly.
