Hello everyone,

I am seriously considering to learn aramaic but Im not yet sure which benefits I have with it. I need some subjective inspiration.

Do you think it was worth to effort so much time and energy into learning that language? In other words, would you do it again?
Do you still have usage for aramaic and the peshitta or is it already shelved?
Can you tell me something about how your thinking of scripture has changed when you read/study the peshitta?

I am grateful if you would take the time to think about that and write a few lines.

Thx in advance,
Steffen

PS. I should add that I dont know hebrew yet. I will learn it at my seminary in the near future.
