For work, I had to fly out to Spokane, WA for the week. So, I had a lengthy flight to fill with activities. I watched that new movie with Jennifer Garner that is supposed to be like A Christmas Carol, but focused on a philandering man instead of a stingy one. Can’t remember the title. But it was a decent movie, and was free. Would have been a good one to watch with my wife, though.
I spent some limited time listening to Andrew Peterson on CD, and then studied some Hindi. Turned on my laptop, but it blue-screened so I decided to turn it off.
Other than that, I pretty much worked on Greek, which I have been behind in. I transcribed more of Matthew (hopefully later this week I can get the next installment of my Matthew translation posted). And then, I worked on memorizing Hebrews.
Right, not the whole thing. That’d be more than my puny memory could handle at the moment. But I have managed to memorize the first 6 verses. (Yes, 6 plane hours and I memorized 6 verses – how pathetic, right?) In my defense, I have a terrible memory. And I’m trying to memorize in Greek, not English. So cut me some slack.
Maybe I’ll post some of my thoughts related to these verses – the flow and cadence, the angle and trajectory of the thought (the first five verses are one sentence!) later. I have been reviewing one of Tyndale’s Bible studies on Hebrews and it, combined with the parables of Jesus that we have been discussing at church recently, has allowed God to bring a whole bunch of truth together in my mind: lot’s of varied thoughts that are all interrelated, building on each other, emphasizing one another in an amazing way.
Hope everyone has a great week.
