Once again, our English words seem to fail to explain the many nuances that our Hebrew and Greek scriptures express.  Even in our own culture we use the word ‘heart’ with different meanings in different situations.  Is it a muscular blood-pump?  A mystical crucible for holding warm-fuzzies?  The central [...]
