Fun with languages
- I don't want to say that the following is acceptable methodology, but if
my reading of salt in Mark was very far from the truth, what would be
the odds that I could do this?
Greek halas = salt
Arabic Halal food = "acceptable" food
Hebrew halakha = "Old covenant Law"
Latin salax = "in a salted state" = "in love"
Everyone/all sacrifices are halal by fire.
But if halakha has lost its halal how can (it/things) be made halal ?
Have salax in yourselves and be at peace with one another.
Everyone/all sacrifices are salted (purified, made acceptable to God) by
fire. But if salt (of the old covenant) has lost its saltiness
(acceptability to God) how can (it/things) be made salty (acceptable to
God)? Have salt (of the new covenant of the sacrifice of Christ, love
and forgiveness)) in you, and be at peace with one another.
