Greek for the Week: Mark 11 for Palm Sunday

palm-sunday-songs-1-1024x585What bored acolyte figured this out first, I wonder? Don’t answer that. Just enjoy Greek for the Week for Palm Sunday, and let me know what you’d prefer to have translated for Holy Week next week!



Greek for the Week: Ephesians 2:1-10

YES, it’s an epistle, but the gospel is John 3:16 and I feel like y’all can handle that (the Greek word for world is “Kosmos). SO much here, and make sure and have the English version close if you can so you can judge how bad a job the translators did with this one.


Greek for the Week, John 2:13-22

SO MANY INTERESTING WORDS. If you are preaching, I highly recommend you listen and do your own research about the different words for “temple.” Very cool.

Also, do go read this, Dr. Lewis’ excellent sermon on this text (and where she gets a little meta about the switch from Mark to John, which I find helpful).
