Agelbert NOTE:
I am guilty ;D of the bold highlighted below in the quotes from Wikipedia. My purpose here is to point out that the scholarly level of knowledge of Greek, that Dr. Spiros Zodhiates possessed, enabled him to spot, and correct, mistranslation errors from Greek to English. These mistranslations cause misconceptions resulting from reading the English Translation of the New Testament (which was originally written mostly in Greek).

Zodhiates was born of Greek parents on the island of Cyprus. His father first brought the family to Port Said, Egypt and then Khartoum, Sudan, looking for work. Spiros's brother, Argos Zodhiates, was converted to Protestant Christianity after hearing an evangelical preacher and brought this witness to his mother and brother, who also became convinced of its truth.

After neglecting to kiss a Greek Orthodox priest's hand
, Zodhiates was expelled from school. A lady named Katherine took pity on him and volunteered to teach the boy English. After completing his Greek education, he attended the American University in Cairo, Egypt, received his Th.B. degree from the National Bible Institute (later Shelton College, which closed its doors in 1990) in New York City, and his M.A. from New York University. In 1978 he earned his Doctor of Theology degree from Luther Rice Seminary of Jacksonville, Florida. He was also the recipient of several honorary doctorates.

Dr. Spiros Zodhiates (Greek: Σπύρος Ζωδιάτης; March 13, 1922-October 10, 2009) was a Greek-American Bible scholar, author, and ministry innovator.

Agelbert NOTE: The videos below are examples of the in depth knowledge of Greek that aids all of us in understanding the Gospels. In future posts I will provide quotes by Dr. Spiros Zodhiates from his edited Hebrew-Greek Study Bible. I have learned much from him. I hope you give him the benefit of the doubt and  carefully and seriously ponder what he says. This man knew his Greek. IOW, it was NOT 'all Greek' to him. 😀

A word of Scriptural advice to those who dismiss, mock or otherwise disdain the wisdom of Dr. Spiros Zodhiates in regard to mistranslations of Greek to English (in the Christian Bible New Testament) without serious consideration of what he says in this post and all the posts I will subsequently make:

Proverbs 15 KJV

The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.

The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.

He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.

The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility

In the videos below, the first important lesson we learn is that, in Greek, there are TWO words for anger, but a SINGLE word for both the Greek words is used in the English Translation of the New Testament. The (justified or unjustified anger) difference communicated by the TWO Greek words for anger is extremely important for all of us.

Justified & Unjustified Anger 1-3

From the "New Testament Light" television program, produced by AMG International, which aired in syndication in the 1980s and early 1990s. The program features the teaching of the late Dr. Spiros Zodhiates, longtime president of AMG International, from the original Greek New Testament text.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
