Modern Greek

By the way, did you know that Greek is still spoken today? It is, in Greece, and yet it is significantly different from Jesus' day. Languages change all the time. Geoffrey Chaucer lived in England from about 1342 to 1400 and wrote a famous book called, "Canterbury Tales." Here is how it starts.

Whilom, as olde stories tellen us,
Ther was a duc that highte Theseus;

Of Atthenes he was lord and governour,
And in his tyme swich a conquerour,

That gretter was ther noon under the sonne.

This is English, at least the way it was written many years ago.

My point is that language changes, and so has Greek. Greeks today use the same alphabet, and many of the words look the same, but it is still different.
