Preaching in Unknown Tongues

Post by cwconrad » December 23rd, 2011, 3:54 pm

David Lang, the Accordance guru, has a blog entry today on a preacher talking about the word καῖρος in Gal. 4:4 -- about what a special word that is. Of course, Gal 4:4 talks about the πλήρωμα τοῦ χρόνου and the word καῖρος doesn't appear there at all. Check it out: "That's Right, Preacher Man! I Am Dangerous" ( ... -Dangerous).

εἰ οὖν τὸ φῶς τὸ ἐν σοὶ σκότος ἐστίν, τὸ σκότος πόσον.

οὔτοι ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς πάντα θεοὶ θνητοῖς ὑπέδειξαν,
ἀλλὰ χρόνῳ ζητέοντες ἐφευρίσκουσιν ἄμεινον. (Xenophanes, Fragment 16)
