    It’s funny when I hear Elizabethan English spoken when quoting Jesus (mostly by Evangelicals rather than mainstream Protestants, and hardly at all by Catholics or Orthodoxes.). After all, Jesus spoke his current language Aramaic (he knew Hebrew), not some gussied-up grandiloquent speech to make him sound sanctimonious.
