    I found your website by accident googling the different Greek words for worship. Fascinating. I was wondering if you have ever read Brant Pitre’s book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist? He has a Youtube video and he’s Catholic. . .but his take on Ancient Temple Worship is fascinating.

      Thanks for your comment. I don’t think I’ve seen that book, but a quick looks tells me it would be informative, illuminating the “roots.” You might have found my post on worship words that follows Karen Jobes’s helpful diagram on semantic relationships of the words. That post is here. [The whole series may be found by going here and scrolling down to the entry for Sept. 23 and before.] You might be interested also in this on another site of mine (connected with two of my books): https://christianassemblyandworshipblog.wordpress.com/52-angles-on-communion/ Your mention of temple worship reminds me, too, that I need to get back to pursuing the matter of what was (and wasn’t) likely publicly done with the Psalms. We Christians seem to have assumed corporate use, but there is little to no documentation of that. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
