So what’s “manthano” anyway?

manthano – koine greek for “I am learning.” That’s what this blog is about, what I am learning – be it about the Bible, computers, etc.

So why koine Greek? Koine Greek is the language I am learning right now at school. I’m leaming it so I can study the Bible (at least the NT) in it’s original language. I have had a year of it so far, and I will continue learning it this year.

Another cool word is mathetes. This word is the noun form of manthano. It literally means “learner.” In the Bible it is usually translated “disciple.” It is used of the original 12 as well as others who followed Christ. That is what I desire to be, one who follows Christ, a mathetes. I am still learning.
