Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Translation of Romans 2:17-29. "Spirit and Letter"

[Completed for my Greek exegesis class this semester.]

17 But if you are called a Jew and rely upon law and boast in God 18 and know his will and approve the superior things, being instructed from the Law, 19 and if you have convinced yourself you are a guide for the blind– a light for those in darkness, 20 an instructor of the senseless, a teacher of toddlers: having the form of knowledge and truth in the Law– 21 then, the one teaching another, do you not teach yourself? The one preaching not to steal, do you steal? 22 The one saying not to commit adultery, do you commit adultery? The one detesting idols, do you commit sacrilege? 23 You who boast in the Law, do you dishonor God through the transgression of the Law? 24 For the name of God is being blasphemed among the ethnicities because of y'all, just as it has been written. 25 For circumcision indeed profits you if you keep law, but if you are a transgressor of law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. 26 Therefore, if the uncircumcised man keeps the righteous requirements of the Law, will not his uncircumcision be accounted as circumcision? 27 And the one who is naturally uncircumcised, fulfilling the law, will judge you: the one who, though having the letter and the circumcision, are a transgressor of law. 28 For the man who is manifestly a Jew is nothing: neither is the circumcision that is manifest in the flesh. 29 But the man who is inwardly a Jew– with circumcision of heart that is spiritual, not literal– his praise is not from men, but from God.
