Rolling Discussion: What's One Thing You Wish You Would Have Learned In Your Greek Class But Didn't?

No class can cover everything. It doesn't matter what the subject matter is (e.g., theology, counseling, hermeneutics, etc.), you simply can't cover everything. And that goes for my classes as well–all of them. I'm curious if there is something you wish you would have learned in your Greek class but didn't. Share it with us here in the comments section. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

  1. I had a forum exchange in my Cultural Analysis and Engagement Class, and it reminded me of something we discussed in Greek class. It had to do with the tools we use to do research. The subject was about technology making us lazy. That is a partial truth. However, it really boils down to how we use it. Google was the example. My classmate argues that Google gives us what we need instantly, thus voiding us from actually doing research, like going to the library, doing stuff "the old fashion way". I have to day that there is some validity with his point. However, my contention is this. Google is still an useful tool and depending on how one is willing to go, there is much more than a simple search. Especially for doing research. Books.google.com is a perfect example. Here you can find excerpts of many books, articles, etc. that will help anyone. The question about technology is this, how are you going to use it. What if when we face Christ, he asks us how did we use that wonderful gift of Google, that he allowed some talented folks to create. How did we use it to fulfill the Great Commission. Better yet, Logos Bible Software. We can get lazy with this too. When was the last time you used a hard copy of Strong's concordance to do a word study, and gone to the library and pile up on books just to prepare for a sermon? It's like the parable of the talents, "you have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much." Can we view Google as a 'talent'? Just a thought.
