      This book explores the notion, found in some early Greek philosophers, that humans can become divine or god-like through reason. Patrick Lee Miller of Duquesne University provides a general introductory chapter, followed by a chapter each devoted to Heraclitus, Parmenides and . The first step in this process is to translate the Greek words of the New Testament into Hebrew.

      Acts New Living Translation (NLT). 21 For he must remain in heaven until the time for the final restoration of all things, as God promised long ago through his holy prophets. 10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. 12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her.

Hood is at home in the three regions. However, Greek is also descriptive of the way Christians think about God intellectually and talk about God theologically, for that thought and discourse have been shaped and defined by ancient Greek philosophical thought.

“Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us responsible for this man’s blood.” 29 But Peter and the other apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than men. 30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you had killed by hanging Him on a.

An Unshakable Kingdom 26 At that time His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth, but heaven as well.” 27 The words, “Once more,” signify the removal of what can be shaken— that is, created things— so that the unshakable may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be filled with gratitude. But as God’s children, we need to walk in fellowship with Him. This idea of fellowship is expressed, especially by John, with the word “abide” or “remain,” which is the Greek meno, “to abide, dwell, live, remain.” Our refusal or failure to abide in fellowship with Him means the loss of His abiding in us in the sense, not of His.

“The Greek gods had personalities like those of humans and struggled with one another for position and power. They did not love humans (although some had favorites) and did not ask to be loved by them.
