Reminder on How to investigate
This is the study of only one Greek word, and you'll be comparing apples with apples so to speak.
Like a reporter who is investigating a story, we can ask similar questions while we are reading through the Bible learning about this subject matter concerning anastasis - resurrection, arise & stand.
We will provide a sample of this using the first time this word resurrection is used in the Stegenga Concordance so you can have an understanding how this is done.
Acts 12:7 (1-19)
- Who is this context about?
- Who is speaking in verse 7?
- Who were listening to him speak?
- What was Peter doing?
- What is the main message?
- What is the reason for anasta (get up) in this context?
You can download a copy of this first section of resurrection to your computer, then if you would like, tell me what you came up with. You can email your sheet to me with your conclusions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is much more going on in the Greek than we care to bring out at this time, but as we go along, you'll see how exact this is and all the facts that you can get out are amazing!
There will be more pages coming, but we'll do them one at a time for now.
