February 17, 2019 Theodore's Baptism
Most of you know I have been trying to learn Greek on-line. So far, it has been a lot of vocabulary. I made myself flashcards with the Greek word on one side and its English equivalent on the other. And I've divided my flashcards into 3 piles; one with verbs, one with words I know basically 100%, and third the ones I really struggle with. My most recent test, I got 20 of 21 verbs, 45 of 46 I should've gotten 100% and I got 51 of 61 in my struggle pile; the best I've ever done.
I'm getting to a point here. Two words in my know-well pile come into play today. Theos means God. Doran means gift. Theosdoran-God's gift. Theodore's name means God's gift or gift of God. And we celebrate Theo today as a gift of God.
