WORDS OF CURRENT INTEREST

[The words in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly designated to be read in Christian Science churches on October 6, 1963.]

Corrupt (Matt. 7:17, 18)

As used in this context, "corrupt" is the rendering of the Greek word sapros, which possesses a rather wide variety of meanings, including "crumbling, decayed, decaying, rotten; and hence, old, worn out, stale, worthless." The New English Bible prefers to use the word "poor" in these verses, and "bad fruit" in place of the "evil fruit" mentioned by the King James translators.
