For the first time this week, part of the homework assignment for my Greek class involved translating a complete verse directly from the New Testament (1 John 5:11). It took me a little while to figure everything out, but I eventually finished my translation. I went to check it against an English Bible and I was thrilled to discover that my translation matched the ESV almost exactly. The only difference was one of the verbs. I had “has given” instead of “gave”, but the NASB also has “has given” just like my translation, so I perhaps there is some flexibility on that word. Anyway, it was such a blessing after the effort I have put into the class. Praise the Lord!
