I said

"when the Quran is translated it is so profound there must have been good reason why god chose to use the Arabic language with it's richness and diversity of meaning based upon the context to reveal his last book to give this profound meanings and express them"

he said
So the ancient Arabic fertility god, Allah, chose to reveal Himself in a language that less than 5% of the world speaks? Makes sense to me.

In other words, it's a repeat of the 1st question, worded a little differently.

ALSO, this nonsense about richness of language can apply to MANY different languages. Greek and Hebrew can also fit the bill very nicely.

When did Jesus come? In the fullness of time.

Galatians 4

3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

4 But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

GOD/YHWH chose the right time in History to reveal the Incarnation of Yashua Messiah.

1. The Pax Romana
2. The crossroads of the world, the middle east, and the center of the middle east, ISRAEL.
3. Common language, Greek. A much richer and deeper language than the crude arabic.

Roman had conquered politically and militarily, throughout most of the civilized world Roman law and peace were enforced.

Greece had conquered culturally, the common or KOINE Greek was spoken by MANY people, regardless of their ethnic origins. Greek was the trade language.

Arabic was the most advanced and comprehensive language at the time when Quran was being revealed and it still is the most comprehensive. The terms, concepts and themes would be best clarified and explained in Arabic language and last but not the least, it was the language of the people where it was revealed. Allah said in the Quran:
 1. Arabic was the language of the people where it was revealed & also the language of prophet Muhammed (p.b.u.h)
وَكَذَلِكَ أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لِتُنْذِرَ أُمَّ الْقُرَى وَمَنْ حَوْلَهَا وَتُنْذِرَ يَوْمَ الْجَمْعِ لا رَيْبَ فِيهِ فَرِيقٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَفَرِيقٌ فِي السَّعِيرِ
“And thus: We have revealed to you a Quran in Arabic so that you may warn the Foremost of all towns and those who dwell around it, and may warn of the Day of Gathering, which is beyond all doubt. One group will be in the Garden, and one group will be in the Flames.” (Quran 42:7)
2. To explain it without any want of clarity, distinctness or perspicuousness
وَلَوْ جَعَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا أَعْجَمِيًّا لَقَالُوا لَوْلا فُصِّلَتْ آيَاتُهُ أَأَعْجَمِيٌّ وَعَرَبِيٌّ قُلْ هُوَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا هُدًى وَشِفَاءٌ وَالَّذِينَ لا يُؤْمِنُونَ فِي آذَانِهِمْ وَقْرٌ وَهُوَ عَلَيْهِمْ عَمًى أُولَئِكَ يُنَادَوْنَ مِنْ مَكَانٍ بَعِيدٍ
“Now if We had made it a Quran in a non-Arabic tongue they would surely have said, “Why is it that its verses have not been made clear? Why – a foreign tongue and an Arab?” Say, “For those who accept it, this is a Guidance and medicine for a wholesome life. But as for those who will not believe (Arabs or non-Arabs), in their ears is deafness, and so it remains obscure to them. They are like people who are called to from afar.” (Quran 41:44)
3. To make it easy to understand
إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ
“Behold, We have sent it down in all clarity, in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason.” (Quran 12:2)
إِنَّا جَعَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُون
“Behold, We have made it a Quran in clear Arabic language that you may fully understand.” (Quran 43:3)
It should be noted that there are around 80,000 words in the Quran but the actual words are only around 2000. In principle, if you take out the repeated words, the total number of words in Quran may well be less than 2000. Allah has revealed His book which contains so few words. Accordingly, if a reader decides to learn only 10 new words everyday, he can understand the basic message of the Quran within a period of seven months! So it is indeed very easy to understand the Quran, provided one is willing to learn it.
The challenge of the Quran, is to produce a single Surah (chapter) like the Surahs it contains. The challenge to produce a Surah, which, in beauty, eloquence, depth and meaning is at least somewhat similar to a Quranic Surah remains unmet to this day. Any scripture claiming to be a divine revelation must also be acceptable on the strength of its own reason and logic. The Quran is not a book of science but a book of ‘signs’, i.e. ayats. There are more than six thousand ‘signs’ in the Quran of which more than a thousand deal with science.
