So I’m reading through the New Testament at the moment, and I see Matthew 1:25 “but he knew her not until she had borne a son”. And of course, at first I understand ‘until’ as implying that the action took place after, not simply that it was a clarification of what came before the event. I found some clarity in this thread over the useage of the word ‘until’ in the bible:
Now, my question is, are there any other significant words that I should know about that might confuse me without knowing the proper context? I am guessing there are many. Do you know any resources where some of the more problematic words are clarified? Or perhaps you could post some of your own examples of words that initially tripped you up with your contemporary understanding of certain words?
