> Thank you both for sharing scripture. I too love Holy Scripture. There is an unfortunate misconception that those of us "whose home is Rome" Do not read the Bible......Not so, but I am not as good at finding and quoting the proper passage for a given situation. I am glad that you do have that ability. GH


The ability sometimes has more to do with knowing how to quickly do the research, and I am still learning. For instance I just figured out how to narrow a search to just the New Testament. (finally eh) I realize not everyone uses the King James Bible, but if you do, on this site you can do a search on any word and pull up all NT references containing that word. The more you study the links the more you understand the language and the spirit.
If you are a person who can't make sense of scripture language, with a little study of Jewish tradition and poetic styles, it gets easier to visualize more than just the words. Many cultures communicate with symbols and pictures. One symbol can go very deep with meaning. It's like a web page. One link symbol takes you to another and another. The same thought process applies to scripture. It can be a very interesting journey through the pages of time and space. Think of all the interpretations of a single parable. A parable paints a poetic picture. I encourage you to try this and have a little fun with it.

Later if you are so inclined, download some of the free mp3 files from The New Testament
