Early General Articles on Christ's Words

More recent articles tend to focus on the meaning of specific Greek phrases or words that Christ uses frequently. These articles were written early in my study of Christ's Greek. Since my knowledge of Christ's use of Greek was more limited in the beginning, these articles tend to focus on the meanings of the symbols that appear in Christ's words. In closely studying Christ's Greek words, even with limited knowledge of the Greek, larger patterns in Christ's teaching become apparent. These patterns may or may not be important.

These concepts discussed are not very obvious in English translation because many different Greek words are translated as the same word in English, while the same Greek word is translated as many different Greek words. When examined in the original Greek, we find that Christ used his words very precisely and consistently. He used different words to express different ideas. We examine these larger patterns of use in the articles under this menu item. The concepts that we discuss in this section are both easy to understand and help us understand the larger context of Christ's Words.
