So many people are lost and confused about the wonderful and simple message of the New Testament. A good way to dive in is to look for key concepts that are easy to grasp and plug the main terms into a lexicon (Λεξικόν). Things like community, church, love, brotherhood and family are starting points. ἐκκλησία (ek-lee-zi-a) is another of the most mistranslated words in the common English versions of the New Testament.
