Explain, Declare

Greek Word Pronunciation: ex-ay-GAY-oh-mai
Strong’s Number: 1834
Goodrich/Kohlenberger Number: 2007
Key Verse: “… the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.” -- John 1:18

Exegeomai is a compound word of ek, meaning “out” or “forth” and egeomai, meaning “to lead the way.”

The noun form of this word was used by the Greeks of an expounder of oracles, dreams, omens, or sacred rites, later coming to mean a spiritual director. In the Septuagint, the word is used of magicians of Pharaoh’s court in Genesis 41:8 and 24, and the verb is used of teaching or interpreting concerning leprosy in Leviticus 14:57.

This verb appears 6 times in the New Testament. Five times, in Luke 24:35, and Acts 10:8; 15:12, 14; and 21:19, the verb is consistently used as “relating, declaring, telling, or describing,” as in a narrative. In JOHN 1:18, however, the word is translated as explained or made known. According to Wuest: “God the Son, in His incarnation, led the Father out from behind the curtain of His invisibility into full view.”

The term “exegesis” comes into the English language with the definition of a method of Bible study in which we fully explain every detail of the text. Jesus Christ, in His incarnation, fully explained in finite terms, so far as finite minds can grasp, all the details of the Person of God the Father. He said, “He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father.” Thus, Jesus Christ is the exegesis of God.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think about if you added some
great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its field.
Superb blog!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?
