The New Testament is an anthology, a collection of Christian works written in the common Greek language of the first century.
The original texts were written in the first and perhaps the second centuries of the Christian Era, generally believed to be in Koine Greek, which was the common language of the Eastern Mediterranean from the Conquests of Alexander the Great (335–323 BC) until the evolution of Byzantine Greek (c. 600).
skops the New Testament was written Greek. Why? Because Alexander the Great spread the Greek language not your slavic bulgar language. Give it up skops Macedonia is Greek!
Do you skop realize how stupid you look trying to be Macedonian when your all pierogi eating slavs like the polish and bulgarians. Alexander did not speak in your ski language!

This Koine merchant language of commerce hardly does not negate the parallel language of the indigenous cultures be it Macedonian, Egyptian, Persian et all...

Stop being petty and ethnocentric...

the Macedonian Empire was engineered to be a multicultural entity and embraced all of the new cultures, languages and customs as a fusion of cultures...too bad Aleksandar didnt finish his work...we wouldnt be having this conversation today...

The fact that the Koine merchant language of commerce was universal and its adoption as the common language for the governance of a multicultural empire means that commerce and trade played an important role in its operations...

This ethnocentric me me me thing is really distasteful and you guys need to look at today and tomorrow to find a way to pay off your enormous debts...get your priorities straight man!!!!

Macedonians are Greek! Learn your Slavic identity and stop fooling yourself. The truth stares you in the face and you still deny your bulgar roots... Be proud of what you are history will not buy your people bread. Get your priorities together. Fyrom is a poor country.

Frigin Apes!
Pounding your chests like Gorillas in the Mist chanting over and over how proud you are to be Greek...

Nauseating to say the least...

My identity is my own to ponder...as is yours.
For you to be this overly concerned with my identity is revealing at how insecure you are about your own that you would have the need to pound your chests and belt out for all to hear that the New Testament was written in Greek...err Koine...

This is 2013 man...dont you have other more pressing concerns than my identity?

My people by the way are in the heart of Macedonia...under occupation by a Greek regime who denies their very existence...

I have every reason here as a free Macedonian in this wonderful country Canada to celebrate who i am in my own way without persecution or prejudice...unlike the situation over in Gaylada.

Insecurity breeds jealousy and contempt...this is what i see in your frantic display of Greekness...sic.

My guess is that you were taught that the baby who cries the loudest gets the milk...sad.

Macedonian was and is a Greek dialect.
Macedonians said and say Thessaloniki.
Macedonians did derive new Greek words by composing other Greek words according to Greek grammar rules: Thessaloniki, argipous, aigipops, ephemeris, paremvoli, Orthopolis, Profthasia, Voukefalas, Parmenion, Polysperchon,.......

Whoever denies Macedonians' Greekness is idiot or ignoramus or an imbecile SlavoSkopian propagandist.

You are waisting your time with Nimrods.
They don't want to know the truth.
And the truth is not bad.
But it makes us Macedonians smarter then they are,
so they continue to disagrea, and refuse to acnowlladg us Macedonians.

Ha, Hell-ass needs to say thank you to Alexander the Great for creating the Koine Languages by force!!

***Alexander the Great (356 BC-323 BC) was instrumental in combining these dialects to form the "Koine" dialect (Greek for "common"). Imposing a common Greek dialect allowed Alexander's combined army to communicate with itself.***

Ha, Hell-ass needs to say thank you to Alexander the Great for creating the Koine Languages by force!!

The language was also taught to the inhabitants of the regions that Alexander conquered, turning Greek into a world language. The Greek language continued to thrive after Alexander, during the Hellenistic period (323 BC to 281 BC). During this period the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, appeared.

For many centuries Greek was the lingua franca of the Roman Empire. It was during Roman times that the Greek New Testament appeared, and KoinÈ Greek is also called "New Testament Greek" after its most famous work of literature.

Alexander demolished Thebes!!!
Quote;
The neighboring states and the cities of Greece rebelled against Macedonian rule now that they saw a boy on the throne. Alexander's council advised him to give up trying to subjugate the Greeks and to concentrate his resources on keeping the barbarian nations of the north under control. Treat the Greeks kindly, they said, and that will dissipate the first impulses of rebellion.

But Alexander rejected this advice. If any sign of weakness were perceived at the beginning of his government, everyone would be encouraged to attack, so only in bravery was there safety. First Alexander marched to the Danube and beat down all opposition from the tribes in that area. When everything there was peaceful again, he turned south and marched to Greece.

There had been a revolution in Thebes. The demagogues there were urging all of the other Greeks to join Thebes and free themselves from Macedonian domination. Athens also was being agitated by talk of war and rebellion, particularly from the demagogue Demosthenes. 6

After a march of two weeks, Alexander appeared at the walls of Thebes and demanded that the city send him the two leaders of the rebellion. To show how willing he was to forgive what was in the past, Alexander offered a full pardon for all those that would take it. The Thebans gave him an insulting reply, so Alexander killed six thousand of them, demolished their city, and sold all of the surviving inhabitants as slaves.

*** This severe example would make the other Greeks think twice about the consequences of disobedience. And soon the Athenians repented and reaffirmed their allegiance to Macedonia. Whether Alexander's new gentleness toward the Athenians was the result of remorse over the horrible cruelty done to Thebes,***

or merely that his passion for blood was satisfied, is not certain. However, from then on Alexander always showed kindness to any Theban survivor he could find.

Soon afterwards, representatives of the Greeks assembled at Corinth and named Alexander to lead them in a war against Persia. 7 While Alexander was at Corinth, politicians and philosophers came to congratulate him, but he noticed that the famous philosopher Diogenes, who lived there in Corinth, did not come.

Alexander may have killed at least 50,000 Greeks who where fighting on the Persian side and you clam his Greek your stupidity is beyond belief.

[1] Arrian's The Campaigns of Alexander "The cavalry action which ensued was desperate enough, and the Persians broke only when they knew that the Greek mercenaries were being cut and destroyed by the Macedonian infantry." [p.119-20]
[ancient Greeks fighting against ancient Macedonians and the modern Greeks called Alexander's conquest Greek? Something doesn't add up here.]
[2] Arrian "The Campaigns of Alexander" "When received the report that Alexander was moving forward to the attack, he sent some 30,000 mounted troops and 20,000 light infantry across the river Pinarus, to give himself a chance of getting the main body of his army into position without molestation. His dispositions were as follows: in the van of his heavy infantry were his 30,000 Greek mercenaries, facing the Macedonian infantry, with some 60,000 Persian heavy infantry- known as Kardakes." [p.114]
[Paradoxical juncture: Alexander's conquest can not be called Greek conquest while 30,000 Greeks are actually fighting against Alexander and his Macedonians, while far less,(7,000) were part of the Macedonian army.]
[3] Quintus Rufus "The History of Alexander" Patron, the Greek commander, speaks with Darius:
"Your Majesty", said Patron, "we few are all that remain of 50,000 Greeks. We were all with you in your more fortunate days, and in your present situation we remain as we were when you were prospering, ready to make for and to accept as our country and our home any lands you choose. We and you have been drawn together both by your prosperity and your adversity. By this inviolable loyalty of ours I beg and beseech you: pitch your tent in our area of the camp and let us be your bodyguards. We have left Greece behind; for us there is no Bactria; our hopes rest entirely in you - I wish that were true of the others also! Further talk serves no purpose. As a foreigner born of another race I should not be asking for the responsibility of guarding your person if I thought anyone else could do it." [p.112-13]
[50,000 Greeks serving with Darius’ army and fighting Alexander's Macedonians. A legitimate and a very obvious question: If Alexander’s army was in fact a ‘Greek army’, as the modern Greeks claim, then how is it possible for a ‘Greek king’- Alexander, to hire mercenaries - Greeks, from his 'own' country? 50,000 strong Greeks were with Darius fighting the Macedonians, while Alexander took only 7,000 Greeks next to his Macedonians which served him as "hostages" and "were potential trouble makers" (Green), which he got rid of only when he learned that the rebellion in Greece against the Macedonian occupation forces there was suppressed (Green, Badian, Borza). The fact that 50,000 Greeks were fighting Alexander’s Macedonians shows clearly that their loyalty and their numerical superiority lies with Darius and his Persians, not with Alexander and his Macedonians. As Peter Green puts it: "if this was a Greek conquest where were the Greek troops?" Alexander’s conquest can not therefore be at all a Greek conquest, but simply a Macedonian conquest.]
[4] "The turning point in the evolution of Alexander's army appears to have been the year 330. Until then the Macedonian component was progressively reinforced, reaching peaks before Issus and after the arrival of Amyntas' great contingent late in 331. Alexander then thought it safe to divest himself of non Macedonian troops. The forces from the Corinthean League, infantry and cavalry, were demobilized from Ecbetana in the spring of 330;
