Congrats on starting Ephesians 5. Are you still working on Luke, or have you finished?

Hello Moviegoer! Nice to hear from you. Ephesians 5; I added that as a kind of "medicine", needing to meditate on some of the truths contained there :)
As to Luke, I'm still working on it and have a long way to go :) The set I most recently added was The Rich Man and Lazarus, Luke 16:19-31. I haven't even begun Luke 17-24 yet (with a few exceptions). I promised to give a full report of the progress every three months and that will come on 5 November. But I've been blessed greatly working on Luke and as I've said before .. it will certainly take years to finish .. if I don't die before then, or if the Lord doesn't return before then.
How are things going for you with 1 Peter?

I want to emphasize here that I'm not aiming for perfect recitation of Luke; I just don't want anyone to misunderstand. I'm aiming rather for as thorough a knowledge of this gospel as I can attain, through a lot of scheduled repetition. If I make mistakes on a couple of verses and they go backwards, I don't worry about it; I'm concerned more with the overall grasping of Luke, rather than one verse. That being said, it's only the method I myself am using; I have great respect for people like you Moviegoer, or FinalAsgard, who have set recitation as their goal. I just feel it's important to be transparent in this :)

First, I applaud your efforts on Luke without aiming for perfect recitation. While my work on Mark was with a desire for perfect recitation, I am still not there. I am not sure I will ever get there. It is a monumental task, and by way of encouragement, I have benefited much much more from a more thorough knowledge, emphasis, and focus on Mark than recitation can give. I Peter is radically different. I feel like letters are easier to get right in terms of recitation, but they are much more compressed in terms of depth. So, I am progressing ok (1st three chapters done), I don't feel like I get it yet. It's coming.

Always good to hear from you Joosep. Thanks for your faithfulness to the work!

Thank you for your encouragement and understanding, Moviegoer :)

If you have some insights from the first 3 chapters of 1 Peter which you would like to share, I would like very much to hear them, and I'm sure others would feel the same :)
