Greeks

in the New Testament mean Hellenists, or naturalised Jews in foreign countries; those not naturalised were called Aramæan Jews in Syria, Mesopotamia, and Palestine.

“I will praise God that our family has ever remained Aramæan; not one among us has ever gone over to the Rellenists.”—Eldad the Pilgrim, chap. ii.
