The viceroy butterfly principle


24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.   Matthew 13:24-30New King James Version

Word Study #1 Pneuma

First  Words of Warning

 Before I start, I want to mention some caveats based on what I saw after writing my introductory post.

Pneuma is an excellent example of why you should understand the context of the verse in question and both translated and original words. It is easy to try to lump them together. Amplified Bible gives you many possible meanings but no context as the correct one for a given passage.  The online dictionaries are better but again don't provide all the possible senses.  This is again why I think   Paper dictionaries are better in this case. When you understand the context, you can make more educated inferences if the verses in which the word used is not listed as examples of any definition. 

Don't let anyone pull the semantic wool over your eyes.

False teachers or those not well versed with the original words may try to give the word a non-existent meaning or classification.  I heard this with ekteino as used in the story about a man with a withered hand in Mark  3.   Attempting to prove that Jesus literally time-traveled to heal  Katie Souza gave ekteino a non-existent temporal connotation. You can listen to the painful and purposeful twisting in John Elving's critique of one of her TVthe starting when she provides the passage's background at the 7:47 mark to 8:03 when she explains the supposed meaning.
