A year or two ago when I picked up the second edition of Gordon Fee's blue

I fnd this an interesting thought! But what does this mean in practice? Say
you have to work on a certain pericope. Do you think it might be a good idea
to learn it by heart in Greek and then walking up and down SUMBALLWN TA
