Ed Stetzer (PhD), Billy Graham Professor of Church, Mission, and Evangelism, Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center, and Dean of the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership, shows how certain Greek words cannot be translated completely into English. In particular, the Greek word translated “compassion” (Matt 9.36; cf. Phil 1.8) refers to a gut-wrenching, achy-heart kind of emotional state.
