Finding Light in a Dark Place

I have a stack of vocabulary cards several inches high.  Greek is getting more and more complex.  But all of this frustration and hard work is worth it.  I've already learned how the Jahovah Witnesses use the Greek texts of John 1:1 to defend some of their beliefs, and how in doing so they are manipulating the Greek syntax to try and make it say something it does not.  I've also already learned a lot of nuances in the Greek that do not get carried over to the English, like emphasis and the Middle voice.  I hope that one day my hard work pays off and I will be able to communicate all of this to my congregation
