Jesus Words: Aramaic or Greek?

I think a good starter would be "Idioms of the Bible Explained" by 
George Lamsa.  "The Semitic Background of the New Testament" by Joseph 
Fitzmyer is very good.  Also works by Joachim Jeremias.."The Parables
of Jesus" for one.  A search of these authors at will produce
other works.
