Introduction ΑΓΑΠΗΣΕΙΣ comes from the double love command in Mark 12.30-31 and summarizes what this blog is about: (1) knowing the word (2) in order to love God (3) and love others. In response to the question, "What is the greatest commandment?" Jesus said: "Hear, oh Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these." This blog is devoted to the interpretation of scripture in order to love God and others. My primary interests to be included in this blog are **biblical exegesis **biblical theology **use of OT in the NT **Greek language **Hebrew language **Bible translation **linguistics **discourse analysis **cognitive semantics **the Letter of James **textual criticism **teaching **preaching. I want to pursue these interests in such a way that I love God with all of who I am and also love others more than myself.
Interests exegesis, translation, writing, hiking, photography, guitar, violin, wrestling with my kids, whitewater kayaking, soccer, downhill skiing
