Traditionally, it is said that Jesus (pbuh) spoke Aramaic. 
Say: "Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death, are (all) for Allah, the Cherisher of the Worlds. (Surat al-Anaam: 162)

Asalamu Alaykum Bowman,
 
Prophet Isa "Jesus" Peace be upon him spoke Aramaic as I understand.

Well first of all, Aramaic and Arabic are sister languages.  Second of all, where does the Quran say that he spoke Arabic?  The Quran is written in the Arabic language so all the stories and quotes of the prophets would obviously be in Arabic!  Is that really so hard to understand?  Wink

The authors of the Koran have not only Jesus speaking in Arabic, but all the OT prophets such as Moses and Abraham, as well - even before Arabic was invented!
 
See the problem, brother?!
 
This is simply more proof that the Koran is not original, but, in fact, a second-hand copy of the original.

Again, the Quran is an Arabic book so...the narratives will be in...Arabic!  Your argument is the same as saying that an English translation of the Quran has the prophets speaking English.  It is a logical absurdity. 

You have not answered my question as to where the Quran actually says that Jesus spoke Arabic.

Bowman, the Quran like the Bible is in large parts not a history book describing real-life events with people conversing in certain languages. These holy texts contain spiritual truths, myths, parables, poems, and other forms of symbolic texts. As human beings Isa and the Prophet did not live at the same time.
