One thought on “Fruits of the Spirit in Greek

  1. interesting Ginny. What I would like to see someone do, is explain the words/ concepts in Hebrew that the English is derived from. The reason is that in my study of scriptural roots, I’ve come to learn th-at Hebrew is the only language that operates on 4 levels. Seeing as all the authors of books in scripture were Hebrews I’d be interested to see what the difference is. I have a book written by 2 messianic rabbis, who are born again of the Spirit, wherein they explain the Greek mindset is totally different from the Hebrew one. The Greeks having a background in mythology viewed hermeneutics as a 2 layer meaning – 25% obvious/literal and 75% myth. Thus it extends to the way they translated Hebrew into Greek for scripture. The Hebrew hermeneutical system was much different. I suggest getting and reading “Devils, Demons, and the Return of the Nephilim” which is not the main focus – rather the understanding of covenant from YHVH Elohim’s (GOD) view as He gave to the authors of scripture.
