so says my old English teacher.

He actually said "the reason it is God's language is it is the purest language and it is the language in the bible."

I got sent to the office once after saying that the bible is written in many different languages. He said I was being slanderous to the word of God.

Needless to say, he got fired pretty quick.

Because a modern language was used 2000 years ago.

"Purest" your English teacher don't know shit. Modern English is the biggest cluster fuck mix match of cultures and different languages squeezed into one. It's insanely difficult and strange to learn for people not native to the language so I've heard obviously I will never know that.

The bible was originally written in Latin, IIRC, and don't the Cardinals and the Pope speak in Latin? Yeah, your teacher is full of shit, burn him at the cross or something.

This is pretty accurate actually.

I heard from some people that it's the hardest language to learn out of all of them.

No. Current consensus is that the New Testament was written in Greek but Jesus spoke Aramaic. The Old Testament is a bit more confusing, but IIRC it's Hebrew and Aramaic.

The Roman Catholic Church uses (well, used; not so much anymore) Latin because it's based in Rome and it was founded when Latin was still in active use.

Also, where do you work that you got fired from?

This sounds made up, reason one, the Bible was translated into English, only recently, like 200 years ago.

Your English teacher isn't aware that the Bible was written in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Latin long before an English translation was created.

I got sent to the office once after saying that the bible is written in many different languages. He said I was being slanderous to the word of God.

I doubt the veracity of this story. But if it's true, then your teacher is an idiot and an ignoramus.

Needless to say, he got fired pretty quick.

He deserved it.

Straight from Wiki-answers.

The Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew, with some parts in Aramaic.
The New Testament was originally written in Greek.

Also English is widely considered the hardest language to learn, definitely not the easiest.

ITT: Bunch of idiots.

The bible was originaly written in hebrew, and it's origins are in eastern north africa. Later on the christians flooded the rome, which used latin, so the bible got translated to latin, and spread to the rest of the countries (Germany, France, Spain, etc.).

Then along with the time it was being translated to rest of the world languages, including english.
