Sunday Morning Greek Blog

About Scott Stocking

My name is Scott Stocking. I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Nebraska-Omaha and then moved to Lincoln, Illinois, where I earned a Master of Divinity degree in Hebrew/Old Testament. I have taught biblical languages, hermeneutics, worldviews and world religions, and prior-learning portfolio writing for the past 16 years. For 2011, I made a resolution to God (the real God, not the New Year’s god) to read through the entire Greek New Testament. I began writing about what I was learning on Facebook, if only for myself, but soon developed a following there, and took my musings to the next level, the Sunday Morning Greek Blog.

In February 2011, I took our congregation’s “301” class for service, for which we had to take the Clifton Strengthsfinder survey. One of my strengths was intellection, and the accompanying book suggested one way to exercise that strength would be to write a blog. Since I was already doing that, I made the jump to a formal blog site,

I’ve been doing the blog for over ten years now. I am really enjoying it, and I enjoy the verbal feedback I get from my friends here in Omaha as well as the comments from those of you out in Cyberspace. Sunday morning hasn’t been enough time lately to write all that I want to write, so I either have to scale it down or start on Saturday night. If something I say touches you in some way, I’d like to know what impact it had on you. You can drop me a private e-mail using the link herein or leave a comment. I finished reading through the Greek NT on schedule for 2011, and I did it again in 2012. I had to take a bit of a break from blog writing because of some consulting and editing work on Bible projects I was doing in my spare time, but I’m primed to get back into it pending any other big projects. The break went longer than I thought, as I got remarried in April 2014. Still settling into married life and a new home, but I am itching to take up the blog writing again.

I have my own worldly goals for writing this blog, but the bottom line is that I want to be faithful with the resources God has given me, including my ability to handle the biblical languages. I’m coming to the realization that when I try to do things on my terms, things don’t go right. So God, I’m completely yours. This blog is yours. My time and resources are yours, because you’re the one who’s been supporting me through the last four years of trials and tribulations, but also newfound happiness. It’s not me, it’s YOU! Thanks be to God for his indescribable gifts and calling!

Thank you for reading Sunday Morning Greek Blog. Dig Deeper; Read Smarter; Draw Closer.

  1. Scott, I happened upon your 2012 blog on the topic of “Take Heart” and shared it with some dedicated healthcare colleagues today. Grateful for this insight and how the Holy Spirit is working in your life. Keep “Listening” – God is SOOO GOOD!

    • I haven’t kept up with the comments, but I wanted to thank you for sharing this post. I noticed a marked increase in views for this post in the past 18 months, and I presumed the pandemic had something to do with that. My wife is a therapist in a SNF, so I know the stresses healthcare workers have been experiencing. I’m very appreciative of all that the healthcare workers have been doing in these difficult times.
