Getting the Bible’s Words Right

May 11, 2018

Getting the Bible’s Words Right, episode 15.

To understand the Bible well, we first must understand the framework it is written in. Once we understand that and then look closely at the original Greek and Hebrew words, we can better understand the words the Bible is using throughout the entire Biblical narrative.  Many of the words in this episode are foundational to the understanding of the Bible. We discuss the words sin, repentance, faith, forgiveness, salvation, gospel, grace, new creation/new life, kingdom of God, disciple, holiness, judgement, and God’s glory.
