Last week my Pastor made a comment on the use of ‘mnemonic devices’ in the Greek text of the New Testament, since then ‘the topic’ has been in the back of my mind. I mentioned in a previous post that my Greek professor Dr. Black had been helpful in this process, he came through again when he emailed me this link earlier today.
This link is an article written by Dr. Black “On the Reading of Poetry”, in the International Standard Version of the Bible. In the ISV, the translators have attempted to retain the poetic nature of the Greek text in the parts of scripture where the majority of scholars acknowledge that poetic structure exists.
This musing is thought provoking!
