Discovering God's words

Each week we take a single word which appears in the Lectionary readings for that Sunday, and explore the use of that word throughout the Scriptures.  

We look at each word as it appears in the original language in Greek or in Hebrew.  

Looking at a single word across the Scriptures helps to give us a greater sense of the unity of all Scripture.
