“Paul and Timothy, Servants of Jesus Christ…” Philippians 1:1
In the Journal last week, I proposed and argued extensively with biblical evidence, that Christians are slaves to Jesus Christ, the King of kings. I believe this is a position of honor. This week, I’ll discuss the Old Testament use of slave and servant and its translation in the New Testament. My objective is to show that translators could have used the appropriate Hebrew or Greek word(s) for servant instead of rendering slave for servant.
