Need help with translation

Postby Prometheus120 » Tue Apr 21, 2015 9:37 am

Hey

I need help with translating this phrase in ancient greek language.

Ever Inward

Also would like to know the translation for "inward". It's meaning is religious. It means Inward as opposed to outward finding of god.

Thank you very much.

Epictetus famously said that certain things are ἐφ' ἡμῖν, but I don't think he meant by that what you mean. I'm not sure that the idea you outline was an idea found among the Ancient Greeks. Nor do I think Jesus had such an idea in mind when he said ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ ἐντὸς ὑμῶν ἐστιν.
