Aramaic, the language of Jesus Christ, has few speakers today but it is being kept alive by the people of Maaloula near Damascus, who hope to preserve it from extinction. Some even hope to attract scholars from around the world who are interested in Aramaic. The language is still used by the Syriac Christian church and the majority of the 15,000 people of Maaloula can speak it, but few can write in it today.
