About Those Paragraph Titles in Your Greek New Testament

Abysmal. That's pretty much what I think about the paragraph titles in my Greek New Testament. 

Today's sermon at church is an example. It was from Luke 11:33-36. My UBSGNT gives this as the paragraph title: "The Light of the Body." Which tells me absolutely nothing. It wouldn't take much to improve on it. Here are a few sermon titles for this passage I found online. My favorite is the last one:

  • Receptivity to Revelation
  • Can You Pass Jesus' Eye Examination? 
  • This Little Light of Mine
  • How's Your Vision? 
  • Darkness Or Light?
  • Welcoming the Light
  • Hard Words for Hard Hearts
  • Clean Your Windows
  • Our Response Matters to God
  • What Does Your Eye See?
  • Glow in the Dark 
  • Headlights for Your Life
  • To See Or Not to See

Come on, editors. Y'all can do better.
