reading the new testament without greek
The Gospels, Lost In Translation
a: Reading the new testament without greek ~
b: drinking wine through a tea bag
What: "The Greek would be nice, the NIV is nasty and the NRSV is acceptable! Reading the New Testament without knowing Greek is like drinking wine through a tea bag!!!" Although there is a hint of academic snobbery in the statement, it is one I have fundamentally come to believe. As Ministers of the gospel it is paramount that we know the text that stands in front of us as a witness to Jesus Christ and, the act of reconciliation that has taken place in him and is expressed in the words of all New Testament writers.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
