comment Given the differences between Hebrew and Aramaic, how are the Aramaic sections identified?
>Hebrew stopped being spoken and written after the Exile. That is patently false. The Dead Sea Scrolls are post-exilic and most of them are Hebrew. The books of Maccabees were originally in Hebrew. Tobit was originally in Hebrew. There are letters, engravings, and coins in Hebrew post-exilic.

comment Was Barabbas' given name Jesus?
Abba as a name for God was actually used in Judaism. It appears in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Talmudic literature. bt Taan 23b tells of Abba Chilkiah who prayed God would send rain for some schoolchildren who had asked him (Abba, the wrong Abba) to make rain. He prayed answer the prayer of these children who cannot tell the difference in "the Abba who can give rain and the Abba who cannot give rain."
