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 April 26, 1964.]

He that overcometh (Rev. 3:5)

In the original Greek this phrase is stronger and more positive than it appears in our familiar English version, for the verb rendered '"overcome" is nikao, meaning "conquer," which in turn is derived from the noun nike, the regular Greek word for "victory." This is well suggested in The New English Bible, which reads, "He who is victorious"; while Phillips has, "The victorious."
