Since the replies I got on-list and off deal with the Hebrew rendering 
of the words the angel would have spoken to Joseph, does this lend 
support to Joseph and 1st-century Jews speaking Hebrew, rather than 
Aramaic -- or in addition to Aramaic? Or would the Aramaic for "Jesus" 
and "he/Yahweh will save" be very close to the Hebrew so that the 
Aramaic of "Jesus" is also related to the Aramaic for "he/Yahweh will save"?
