The project has been going well. So time to modify things. I was reminded again today of just how important it is that I get my German down. Really down. So in addition to the Greek and Hebrew I’m adding German back in. I have a great couple of resources to recommend if you haven’t begun studying German yet. Or maybe you need a refresher?
Start with this:
Then get this:
And start carrying this one to church:
There, that should get you off to a great start! I’ve been through Wilson’s book twice, and am now plugging away through Ziefle’s Modern Theological German. Daily readings are also being done from my parallel ESV/Luther bible. Hey, learning German is not only super fun, it’s also devotional.
Psalm 138 (Hebrew and Greek LXX)
2 Cor 1–3 (Greek)
Acts 9:1–25 (German, section 4 in Ziefle’s MTG)
As our departure date to leave for Durham draws closer, I am becoming even more focused. There seems to be so much to do and so little time, but this has a way of focussing my energies and helping me to maximize every minute of time that I can find. Some of the anxiety has gone down as the Greek especially has been getting faster, smoother and more comfortable. But still so far to go. I thank God for helping me in this endeavor, as I seek to honor him through an attitude of excellence in both reading the scriptures and also being a husband, father and friend.
