PostSubject: The Gospel of Matthew   Fri Feb 22, 2008 9:06 pm

Steve, didn't you say you made your own translation of Matthew? I forget where I read that, could you give me a link?

Also you may be interested in this, if you haven't seen it already

The beatitudes unlocked by Hebrew parallelism, Matthew 5:3-10

I like what he said here:
Quote :
At the very least we should get back to reading Scripture aloud so that
we hear it twice, once with the mind and once with the external ear.

I believe that too, it also coincides with 'so then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of G-d - Romans 10:17

That is why I have the bible on CD and like to listen to it whenever I can.

I like this

Poor in spirit = meek


Therefore, using parallelistic equivalence of phrase and Old Testament
language context we can see that 'poor in spirit' does not refer to
material poverty as Luke 6:20 taken in isolation might suggest. Rather,
it refers to being 'meek' or 'humble'. This is relevant because another
passage used by Jesus to describe his ministry is Isaiah 61:1ff., this
refers to the Spirit's anointing to preach the gospel to the poor, or
so it is usually translated. However, the Hebrew word in Isaiah is
again 'meek' and not 'poor'. Thus, it is not material poverty but
spiritual humility which is most open to hear the gospel. God shows no
partiality to rich or poor.
