Scholars say the Hebrew and Aramaic should really be considered as separate languages, but I have another theory I found something very interesting based on which Dead Sea scroll texts are in Hebrew and Aramaic Jubilee says that Hebrew is the original language of the world, but is at the same language we call Hebrew today.
My argument aims to postulate the Aramaic is the original Hebrew and the Hebrew as we know it is really a derivative up of the original Hebrew, aka Aramaic. Most of the Dead Sea Scrolls are in the so-called Hebrew and Aramaic, but what’s interesting is that when you actually observe when the text would have originally been written you find that most texts root and Aramaic predate most text written in Hebrew in the Dead Sea Scrolls. For example, the Book of Enoch the book of Lamech Noah and Abraham founded the Genesis and the Testament of Levi are all in Aramaic.
These writings is written by who they claim to be written by all originally pre day every writing written from the book of Judges to Maliki found the Dead Sea Scrolls, but every book from the book of Judges to Maliki is in Hebrew in the scrolls.
What I’m saying is simple. If you put the scrolls in order of when they would have originally been written and then attached a language they are written and based on the Dead Sea Scrolls you find, that there is a clear division of what time period Aramaic was used and what time period Hebrew was used, so with that said here is my theory. Aramaic is the original Hebrew referenced in the book of Jubilees that’s why all the early writings are in Aramaic when the Babylonian captivity occurred the Jews adopted a version or dialect of Aramaic, which is the Hebrew language.
We know today the Essenes kept the books written in the original languages and copied them in the original languages, because they view these early air make writings as the original Hebrew language and is extremely sacred, but the writings that were meant to be for public use they copied in Hebrew.
This would explain why Moses writings which according to my theory whatever probably originally been written in the air may are on Hebrew and the scrolls instead of Hebrew replacing Aramaic.
Aramaic just branched off and became another Semitic dialect I don’t always trust your binnacle writings however I find it interesting that wanted them set Adam spoke Aramaic this idea fits well with my theory. It is also believed that, Jesus Christ spoke Aramaic it seems likely that the Messiah would have spoken the original language of the world.

Aramaic is could be an easy language to learn if you have a basic knowledge of Hebrew or Arabic. Otherwise, it would be very difficult to learn Aramaic for native American English speakers or other European language.
