That's John 1:1 from the Peshitta.

Many think that Matthew was written in Aramaic (or at least dictated in Aramaic while a scribe translated it into Greek on the fly.) The reason for that is there are many Aramaic idioms and expressions which are direct translations. Mark was the first gospel written and was written in Greek (Mark was written for Gentiles), while Matthew has many Jewish and Aramaic allusions. The first book of the New testament was Galatians, and that was written in Greek. (Galatia was a Greek speaking city) Most of the apostles spoke Greek as a second language and since most of them were illiterate, they hired scribes to write what they dictated. (Paul was nearly blind by the time he wrote Colosians, so we know that one was dictated, but Galatians and Thessalonians were most likely written in his own hand.) Peter was a fisherman. Do you know any fisherman who can speak more than one language? Maybe they can curse in 5 or 6, but that's about it.
