You, my readers, may enjoy this lovely piece by the V. Rev. Patrick Reardon, “The Macedonian Call.”  He correctly stresses the particularity of the first trajectory of the New Testament kerygma (proclamation) as shaped by a specific tongue, koine (“kee-NEE”) Greek.  Thank you, Fr Alban West, for calling this to my attention!

Here is the link to “The Macedonian Call”:
