Well dont laugh at me, but one little fun fact I know is that the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are "alef" and "bet" and of Greek it is "alpha" and "beta".

But thats just pronounciation they have their own text of course

There's a reason for that. Hebrew was a direct adaptation of the Phoenician script, and Greek was a direct adaptation of...the Phoenician script. The main difference is, the Greeks added vowels. The Etruscans adopted their script from the Greeks, and the Romans from the Etruscans. In other words, our Western letters "A" and "B" (and others) go all the way back to the Phoenicians.
