The Spirit always takes precedence. Knowing Greek should only help clarify
what the Spirit of God teaches. The operation of the Spirit of God within the
spirit of a person is significantly more important than the operation of the
human mind and its abilities. The mind must be the handmaiden of the spirit.
The mind must serve the spirit. The mind and intellect handle the world of
Greek, or any language for that matter. The human spirit is that place and
that place alone where God is known and where the Bible can be properly
interpreted by the Holy Spirit.
