    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] Note: List of named myrrhbearers... Mary, the mother of James and Joses... [/quote] It would seem, that the mother of James is meant. I'm not LCMS (but ELCF), but this article Joanna, Mary, and Salome, Myrrhbearers – Our Redeemer Lutheran Church (ourredeemernewark.org) by John Rickert would point into that direction. At least

  • Re: Prayer for the 17 Missionaries and their families

    A quick translation of a finnish hymn we sang today morning: " When carrying to all lands the Flag of Cross You bear, so help your witnesses stand, under their pressures, dare! Oh Jesus, do so help them, that they may be so bold to own your name and blood, Lord your name to grant and hold! "

  • Re: Prayer for the 17 Missionaries and their families

    I brought this to the attention of at least a 100 congregants, as I was a celebrant on a mass today morning. It helped to bring this prayer request to the attention of the congregation, since the topic of today in ELCF was: "Ambassadors/emissaries/envoys of Christ." So, prayers from Europe, Finland, too!

    This Counterpoints Series volume would give you a good start or introduction as to the dividing lines in Pauline Studies: Michael Bird (ed.), Four Views on the Apostle Paul . It all depends on which School of Pauline Studies you belong into. The IVP Hawthorne,Martin,Reid Dictionary on Paul and his Letters is nevertheless useful. Good general protestant

    Hi, Wimi2, and welcome to the forums! I know only of this way (not a search only in one book, but pretty close to that): Step 1. I have opened my NA28 to the Lord's Prayer (in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 6, where i know that the word Πάτερ appears): Explanation of the above: 1) First i right-click the word. 2) Second i select the noun. 3) Then

  • Re: Linguistics, grammar and punctuation John 1:18

    Your question preoccupied me further. I might add that Robert H. Mounce mentions in the RECB that " If μονογενής, monogenēs, is taken as a noun and followed by a comma, the result is a threefold description of Jesus: he is the unique one; he is God; he is the one who is in the bosom of the Father ." So does Leon Morris in his NICNT : " It is possible

  • Re: Linguistics, grammar and punctuation John 1:18

    [quote user="Hope"] μονογεν ὴ ς θε ό ς (monogenes theos, "the only God") [/quote] I would draw attention to the translation of the word μονογεν ὴ ς. You translate it "the only", " one of a kind, only or unique." I'm ok with that translation, but in my opinion there's more to it than that. Clearly it is a compound term consisting of the prefix μονο-

Here are my initial steps: Know whether: a) you know that you imagine or b) imagine that you know or c) by doxa you mean opinion or glory (both are legitimate translations of the word doxa !)
