Personally I would find it logical. Hebrew also has much more depth to hide little gems.
I didn't follow the links.. but i think this is a great topic, and I agree very logical, and yes, adds such depth to God's Word! I wonder what do you think about Paul's letters when written to a Gentile church? Hellenistic and Greek.. Do you think those were likely written in Greek or in Hebrew?
I wonder if there were Hebrew and Greek gospels circulating after a while? (shortly after the first gospels were written very likely in Hebrew).. Luke was a Gentile I guess so I wonder about his gospel?
Maybe this is covered in this thread already!
Paul's letters would very likely have been written in Greek, as he was writing to churches all over the world of Jew and Gentiles, and Greek was the common tongue. It would have made no sense to write an epistle to the believers in Corinth in Hebrew, for example.
That all being said, WW is certainly right in saying that most of the writers were Hebrew (and most of the scenes with Jesus were with Hebrew or Aramaic as the spoken language), so a Hebrew mindset is being expressed into Greek. The only writer who almost certainly has Greek as his mother tongue would appear to be Luke, who in Luke and Acts is regarded as writing in a very skilled manner.
I think it is the sort of question everyone is going to see from their own perspective, but there are interesting things to consider from the Greek side. For instance, the alliteration in Romans 1:31:
ἀσυνέτους ἀσυνθέτους ἀστόργους (asunetous, asunthetous, astorgous)
This comes in the midst of a long list of fleshly character traits. If Romans had been written in Hebrew, it would have been the most tremendous coincidence for these words to match so closely. Nor is this by any means the only place where this kind of word play occurs.
The issue of original composition is not an open and shut case, but I for one really enjoy what those with deep knowledge of Hebrew like WW and Gregory bring to the table. If anyone is interested in links that are in favor of Greek being the original language, let me know.
My own personal belief is that the language of God, rather than being any particular human language, is Spirit, and where this Spirit inspires, that language becomes spiritual, whether it be Hebrew, Greek, English or Tagalog. That being said, I also believe God created the languages for specific purposes, and the reason I believe that God created Greek for the gospel going forth, is that it offers a lot of precision that is very important when matters of doctrine arise. However, again referring to something WW said, I don't think you can divorce the Greek of the NT from the Hebrew minds behind it.
