About:

"In Revelation 2:2, Jesus tells the church in Ephesus something intimate. He says, 'I know your works' (Oida ta erga sou). Four words don't seem like much, but in the Greek, it packs a punch... Jesus chooses the Greek word oida, which expresses total, comprehensive knowledge. It is intimate knowledge that comes from being up close and personal. This knowledge isn't hazy on the details. It doesn't struggle to remember. It preserves the particulars. In the mind's eye, everything is sharp and clear, like a well-taken photograph." -Chris Palmer "Letters from Jesus: Studies from the Seven Churches of Revelation" explores Christ's warnings to the seven most prominent churches in Asia Minor in the book of Revelation. These letters date back to 95 A.D., but they help us make a fascinating discovery about civilization: life hasn't changed that much over the last two millennia.
Author Chris Palmer illustrates the truths contained in the "Letters from Jesus" using modern, everyday day examples. The host of the popular podcast "Greek for the Week", he unpacks Greek words and phrases in these verses from Revelation with humor, joy, and biblical scholarship.
Why study Greek, even just a little bit? As Chris explains, looking at the New Testament in the original language in which it was written can offer us some beautiful insights into God's Word. "It's like reading the Bible in high definition," he says. Also, "studying God's Word in the original language forces us to approach it with reverence and awe, humbling ourselves to obey what it says, whether it's something we want to hear or not."
