I'm copying this post from Mike Bird's blog. Even an excellent NT scholar like Mike can recognise the truth when he reads it.
Hebrew: "The Language Pleasing to God"
In reading Pseudo-Clementine's Recognitions for my devotions . . . (just kidding!) I came across this rather amusing passage:
In the fifteenth generation, men first worshiped fire and constructed idols. Now, until that time one language prevailed, the language pleasing to God: Hebrew (1.30.5)
All my OT pals will love this quote!
If you haven't found Mike's blog try a look at Euangelion.
