  1. I always like to follow along when you read out of the Bible . So what bible are you reading from when you are reading this philemon?


    • Great question. Usually, I begin with several of best word for word translations like the ESV and NRSV, then I compare contemporary thought translations like the Kingdom New Testament, The Message, and the NLT. Then, for key verses, I look at the Greek text and dig into the original contexts and meanings. Finally, i make a Power Point slide (posted on YouTube) that combines all of the above. Hope that helps.
