With all your heart

The book is a side-by-side ancient Greek and modern Greek New Testament. The ancient Greek is on the left page and the modern Greek on the right. I purchased the book from a little old nun in Meteora, Greece for €10 (a steal!).

 

The ring is from a dear friend of mine.

 

For those interested, the text is open to Luke, chapter 4. The circled word on the left-hand side is translated "good news" and "gospel" and is the same word used to title the Gospels, i.e. the "Gospel" of Luke.

 

Got the initial idea from this picture.
