I was going through some class notes from the Seminary when I came across this little quote. What I’m actually doing is trying to scan most of my notes into the computer so that I don’t have to store (and move) the binders.
I can’t even remember who the professor was, but he was explaining a certain construction in 1 Peter and gave a wooden translation that you would never use, but gets at the meaning of the phrase. He said "you can put it in your notes if you promise not to put it in a sermon."
As it turns out, I’ll be preaching on this section next Sunday.
