Jewish by birth (never religiously), baptized as an infant in the Roman Catholic Church, but just now preparing to be confirmed and have my first communion.

A friend of mine and I are preparing to begin a study group for Attic/Koine Greek. If you are interested in learning Attic/Koine Greek, please go to the following website, create an account, and introduce yourself:

We're hoping you'll participate!

comment What is the accurate meaning of κεφαλὴ (kephalē) in 1 Cor 11:3?
"If it means "Authority Over", it is against trinity." - No, it's not. In the Trinity, there is an equality of nature, not position. A son is subordinate to his father, whether his father be God or a man in nature. For this reason, in the Trinity, the Father sends the Son, and not vice-versa.

comment What does it mean to be “born of water”?
@MatthewMiller: "Though Nicodemus translates the word as “a second time,” the word also means “from above.” It is this later interpretation, which Jesus seems to intend." <---- Problem is, Jesus and Nicodemus like communicated in Aramaic, although the words would later be translated and recorded into Greek for a Gentile audience (in the Gospel of John). That being said, there's no Aramaic word that has the double meaning which ἄνωθεν does. Thus, instead of assuming Jesus meant "born above," why not believe what Nicodemus heard? That is, Jesus said "born again," only he meant spiritually.
