Theological English (4): Connections – Same Letters, Same Order

In this fifth video on “Theological English”, Jonathan Dunne begins to look at word connections in the English language – that is, the spiritual content of language, meaning inside words. Unlike etymology, which is the study of how words have evolved over time, the spiritual content of language hasn’t been put there by us – it is meaning the words themselves contain, whether we like it or not. Hence the spiritual content of language can be said to be “outside” or “behind” time. It is vertical rather than horizontal (“over” time). Here, Jonathan looks at the simplest word connections – connections between words that don’t involve making substantial changes to the letters or their order.
