Re:Greek

Here’s a resource I thought I’d pass along from the Mark Driscoll/Mars Hill/Resurgence family:

Re:Greek

Here’s some info from their website:

What is Re:Greek?

In our goal to resource multiple generations to live for Jesus so that they can effectively reach their city with the gospel by staying culturally accessible and biblically faithful we must not only study our city, as well we must study our bibles. The Resurgence Greek Project helps you study the Bible more effectively and more easily than ever before. No more flipping through numerous resources or problem solving an online tool that was designed in the early 90’s. Re:Greek brings you the latest technology to study the most timeless treasure, God’s Word, as part of the free online resources of theresurgence.com.

How does it work?

Everything is at your fingertips! If you want to search for a word, you can just click on it and a menu will give you options for that word. Want to study it in Greek? Easy, just switch over to the Greek text and all sorts of grammatical tools are available to you. Coming soon we will provide some video tutorials.

How can Re:Greek help me?

If you’re a pastor that thought you didn’t have time to do the “hard” work of studying the text in the original Greek and still keep your prep time in check, then Re:Greek will help you by allowing you to do the language work much more easily. Thus freeing up more time to spend with your family and ministering to the needs of your congregation.

If you are a God fearing man and woman called to minister wherever you live and desire regular study of your Bible, then Re:Greek will help. At Re:Greek you will be able to pick up right where you left off in your study and reading without having to navigate through the mess of pages. Without advertisements or pop-ups, there won’t be any distractions for you as you look to God’s Word for truth.

A Challenge From Chuck Swindoll To Pastors

In light of the present state of pulpits/preaching across the world, here is a great challenge from one of the most-gifted pastor/preacher/communicators of our time, Chuck Swindoll. I’ve heard him speak numerous times {radio, cds, in chapel while in seminary, etc}, and I wanted to share this challenge, especially for my fellow pastors out there. Enjoy…and keep preaching the Word!

A Video Message To Pastors can be found on his blog: The Pastor’s Soul, Role, and Home

…And My Hope Is Lost

You ask me what my hope is; it is, that Christ died for my sins, in my stead, in my place, and therefore I can enter into life eternal. You ask Paul what his hope was. “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.” This is the hope in which died all the glorious martyrs of old, in which all who have entered heaven’s gate have found their only comfort. Take that doctrine of substitution out of the Bible, and my hope is lost. With the law, without Christ, we are all undone. The law we have broken, and it can only hang over our head the sharp sword of justice. Even if we could keep it from this moment, there remains the unforgiven past. “Without shedding of blood there is no remission.” He only is safe for eternity who is sheltered behind the finished work of Christ.
D. L. Moody

Thanks for these words, Ross!
