When I was in shutdown mode at the start of 2015, I was visited by a familiar young man who advised me to keep this web site. I asked why and he said I would know.....
The verb אסף (asap), means to gather or collect, and is most commonly either associated with the harvest or a gathering of men.
(Genesis 29:22, Exodus 3:16, Isaiah 10:14)
It may also mean to gather up or remove
(1 Samuel 14:19, Isaiah 57:1, Judges 19:15)
The familiar phrase "he was gathered to his people" as an interpretation of a person's dying is also constructed through this verb.
(Genesis 25:8, Deuteronomy 32:50)
The name Logos is a noun derived of the Greek verb λεγω (lego), meaning to speak intelligently:
The verb λεγω (lego) means to speak intelligently, although it appears to have originated in a collecting or gathering together. This verb's Latin equivalent, lego, indeed means to bring together, gather or collect.
From the Latin verb derives the familiar noun legio, legion, and from the Greek verb comes the noun λογος (logos), "word" but in the sense of a whole message, or even more accurate: intelligence as an interconnected network of things known, or the expression of that intelligence.
So, this seems important. It is what I have been doing for the last four years....gathering information and knowledge about subjects that interested me. Not leisurely seeking, but a voracious and enthusiastic searching. I truly disliked and mistrusted the national educational format. This period of my life has felt like I have educated myself where my abilities and interest lead me. How fun! Follow this with an powerful desire to share my new knowledge with everyone, whether they wanted to hear it or not. Then an understanding settled in......we each walk this path individually, learning as we go, step by step. We each have to do our own work.
