I DO NOT need to know Greek in order to understand my English bible~enlightment comes by the Spirit of God~(Ephesians 1:17,18) NOT by knowing a language you do not know, that God has never encouraged his children to know BEFORE they can come to the knowledge of the truth only proves that you are just blowing smoke or using that as a means to deceive others by! I'm not going to spend valuable time chasing this unworthy rabbit~I'll let this wounded rabbit go off and die somewhere for the reward of chasing it is not worth the effort!
The SPIRIT OF GOD
Paul by Jesus in His office or promise of Holy Spirit:
the spirit OF wisdom and revelation in the knowledge OF him:
OF is a preposition: the spirit OF knowledge is the mental disposition
Rev. 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the WORDS
of the prophecy of this book,
If any man shall ADD
unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
RB has added to the words of Ephesians;
Before getting to Greek it is important that we learn ENGLISH
so we can READ
that which is Written as the WAY to receive FAITH. Notice that not even Paul HEARD anything which he was not TOLD.

Eph. 1:17 That the
God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
may give unto you the spirit OF wisdom
and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Peter shows that WE ADD knowledge as DISCIPLES who learn by READING
that which is written for our learning
2Pet. 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
through the KNOWLEDGE of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pet. 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
that by these ye might be partakers of the DIVINE NATURE having escaped

2Pet. 1:5 And beside this, GIVING all DILIGENCE, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

2Pet. 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

When God the father BREATHED without measure Jesus SPOKE only what HE heard from the Father. His Word continue to carry the SPIRIT or MIND of God because history warns us about people who hear VOICES or see VISIONS they claim comes from a "spirit." Apollon is a PERSONIFIED spirit so the Holy Spirit OF God through Jesus as the only One who KNOWS THE FATHER can guard against people selling KoolAid.John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;
the flesh profiteth nothing: [whatever comes out of a human mind]
the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.
