It appears that Kevin Wilson has tagged me for an odd little game of social networking. The rules are as followed:

  • Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more (no cheating!)
  • Find page 123
  • Find the first five sentences
  • Post the next three sentences
  • Tag five people

The nearest book at hand is my favourite Bible: a leather combination BHS/UBS4 that I hand-bound myself (yes, I also have a Biblia Sacra, but it’s not leather bound and has the NA27). Since I’m teaching intro to the New Testament this semester, the Greek side is up; and I’ll post from that side. Page 123 of the UBS4 is Mark 2.1-10. Assuming each verse is about a sentence, my quote consists of vv.6-8 (text pulled from

6 ἦσαν δέ τινες τῶν γραμματέων ἐκεῖ καθήμενοι καὶ διαλογιζόμενοι ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις αὐτῶν, 7 τί οὗτος οὕτως λαλεῖ βλασφημεῖ τίς δύναται ἀφιέναι ἁμαρτίας εἰ μὴ εἷς ὁ θεός; 8 καὶ εὐθὺς ἐπιγνοὺς ὁ Ἰησοῦς τῷ πνεύματι αὐτοῦ ὅτι οὕτως διαλογίζονται ἐν ἑαυτοῖς λέγει αὐτοῖς, τί ταῦτα διαλογίζεσθε ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις ὑμῶν;

I tag the following folks: Daniel Kirk, Pat McCullough, Jim Spinti, and Calvin and Mandy Park.
