Tongues of Men

I have mentioned before that in a diverse place like London the courts get to use a lot of interpreters. For the second time in my experience we had a Tigrinya interpreter the other day, followed by a chap translating to and from Amharic. "Blimey" I thought. "Wasn't that Jesus' language?" Well, no, actually. That was Aramaic, as I found out when I looked it up on Wikipedia
We live and learn.
