    This is a really interesting collection. I’ve found a few things I’d like to read. Washington is the “Blackest Name” in America? Who spends time researching this stuff, and what has this knowledge added to my life?

    I’ve never read the Greek New Testament, but my Bible comes with a handy dictionary of the original Greek for certain words in the back with a little number system thingie (I’m so technical, I know!). I would love to be able to read the Bible in its original languages, but to be honest, French kicked my butt and I’m losing it (no one to talk to), so I don’t know how long it would take me to be able to read it. Nice pictures. 🙂

      I totally understand about losing your French. I majored in French in college and my fluency isn’t as strong as it used to be! Learning Greek has been a challenge (it’s so different from Romance languages!), but it has been really cool to be able to read the New Testament in its original language. I’m not sure whether or not I’ll tackle Hebrew or try to become better at Greek. We’ll see!!
