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.
