Greek like Violin: Days 15 and 16 (handling missed days)

The 15th day of “Greek like Violin” occurred on Sunday, not Friday of last week. We have been extremely busy with the demands of moving to Durham. Reading time is taken when I can find it, but the work in the languages must continue. One big help is the self-imposed demand that all Bible-reading, whether devotional or academic, is done in the Greek or Hebrew.

Here was the breakdown for Sunday morning:


Sunday – 1 Corinthians 14 (Greek)

Monday – 1 Corinthians 15 and 16 (Greek)


For those of you following this blog regularly, and finding motivation for your own studies in the original languages, stay strong this next week. I will be extremely busy with packing and other moving arrangements. Also, I need to partition more time to reading the assigned books for my modules at Durham.

So, many demands on my time, but I’m sure you have many on yours, too. Don’t get frustrated, just plug away as much as you can. If you miss a day (as I missed Friday and Saturday), don’t let your personal disappointment cause your behavior towards others to be unloving. Instead, try to remember what you read the last time you were able, and apply that to your present situation, looking ahead to the next time you can practice Greek or Hebrew like the violin.
