ὄντως ἠγέρθη ὁ κύριος!
Wishing everyone a blessed and memorable Easter, especially in the midst of these interesting times! Let us rejoice in the resurrection and life of Christ our Savior, who has given us eternal life through His death on the cross! So thankful this year that we have the privilege to worship Him, even if we can’t make it to a church building because of COVID-19.
Have you ever wondered what an Easter greeting in Greek would sound like? Wonder no longer! I ran across this site (called YouTube, ever heard of it?) that happened to have a video of just that! :) Kind of a neat accent he has there, not exactly the kind I’m used to, but I can understand what he’s saying!
“Εὐλογητὸς ὁ θεὸς καὶ πατὴρ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, ὁ εὐλογήσας ἡμᾶς ἐν πάσῃ εὐλογίᾳ πνευματικῇ ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις ἐν Χριστῷ…ἐν ᾧ ἔχομεν τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν διὰ τοῦ αἵματος αὐτοῦ, τὴν ἄφεσιν τῶν παραπτωμάτων, κατὰ τὸ πλοῦτος τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ…”(ΠΡΟΣ ΕΦΕΣΙΟΥΣ 1:3,7)
