An upcoming book by Dr. John MacArthur is definitely on my to read list in 2011.  It’s called Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ, and in it Dr. MacArthur deals with how the Greek word doulos has often been translated as servant when it is actually only used to mean “slave.”  With that understanding how should that impact how we see our relationship with Christ and what that means to our everyday lives?

I don’t think I would call the translation of the Greek word doulos as servant a conspiracy, but I do appreciate Dr. MacArthur’s emphasis on the word.  I do believe it does change how we view our identity in Christ.  I also would say this isn’t anything new, but it hasn’t been emphasized for a long, long time.  It’s about time.
