I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that my New Year's resolution was to read the Greek New Testament at least once all the way through, from start to finish, this year. I set up a reading plan for myself, which is pretty rigorous given all the things I have going on. However, I am sticking to it. I'm pleased to say that I'm still on track. So far, I have completed both Mt and Mk. Tomorrow, I begin Lk, which will take about a week and a half. I will say, it has been very enlightening reading through the New Testament this way. I have really started to see the little idiosyncrasies of the writers, that is, the little phrases they like to use over, their favorite words or images, etc. This is very cool to pick up on. I've also noticed word connections throughout each narrative that I've never noticed before; something that I think would've remained lost on me if I had only continued reading in English. Some of these connections are incredibly valuable on the interpretive and theological scales and have definitely reshaped my view of both Gospels a little bit so far. Anyway, here's to reading Lk and staying on track!
