What does Paul mean by “fellowship,” when he says, “What communion has light with darkness?” (2 Cor- inthians 6:14). First of all, “communion” here is the same Greek word translated “fellowship” elsewhere in the Concordant Literal New Testament (“communion” having to do with things, “fellowship” with people), so I’m treating these words as the same, which they are. e Greek word for each is koinonia.

The CLNT could have been even more consistently concordant here, by consolidating the different variations of this word family under “share” … the one exception being the negative aspect of this, the “common” or defiled thing (Strong’s #2839). That is, in the 13 Pauline epistles I’ve found that this works (5 times) with the verb #2841; works (13 times) with the noun #2842; works (1 time) with the adjective #2843; and works (5 times) with the noun #2844; That is, in all of Paul’s verses, the different variatoins of “sharers,” “sharing [ones],” “a sharing,” and “be you sharing” work well, communicate concordantly, consistently, and clearly …

The pivot verse both here, and in your newsletter being 2Cor 6:14 …I share, here, with you, a Greek to English reading of my own (with God’s help, of course):

“Be you becoming no[t] diversely-yoking with~untrusting [ones]; for what~a partaking with~ righteousness, and with~lawlessness; yet, what~a sharing with~light towards a~darkness?”
