Luk 5:3 İki tekneden Simun'a ait olanına binen İsa, ona kıyıdan biraz açılmasını rica etti. Sonra oturdu, teknenin içinden halka öğretmeye devam etti.And a few words:
- binmek -- to mount (a horse, camel, etc.); to get in (a car); to get on (a bicycle, motorcycle, etc.); to board (a ship, train, airplane); to get on (a mobile thing such as a seesaw, swing, etc.); (for an animal) to enter (a truck, trailer, etc.)
- inmek -- the opposite of binmek.
- oturmak -- sit, seat, reside
- tekne -- boat.
- teknenin içinden -- from the boat's inside
- halka -- to the people
- öğretmeye devam etti -- he a teaching gave
American preachers are noteworthy for lively pulpit mannerisms. After the fall of the Soviet Union, a number of well-wishers from the States flocked to the former Soviet republics with a message of new hope. And the local Orthodox priests began to adopt their peripatetic style of oration.
Yes, an exciting message can make it hard to keep one's seat. Still, I wonder if some of the reverence due God's word and its proclamation is lost when preachers act like cheerleaders.
And, I'd like to ask my Turkish readers -- do your imams sit, walk, or stand, when they preach? Thanks!
 from the Greek -- means "walking around."
