Thalitha Kuo Ume: Did Jesus Speak Igbo In The Bible?

Remember in Mark 5:37-44 when Jesus Christ saw the girl that had died he said “Talitha cu mi” and the dead got up and walked. For a dead person to get up and walk, that person has to start breathing again. As we know breathe is life.

Now, what if what Jesus actually said was “Thalitha kuo ume”, meaning “Thalitha breathe in” in Igbo?
