About kataggello

kataggello is pronounced: “kat–ang–gel–lo”. kataggello.org is a website hosting the study, “Can We Talk About the Lord’s Supper?”.

kataggello is a letter for letter transliteration of the Greek word, καταγγηλλο. In Greek the double γ, or “gamma”, (transliterated into the English “g”) has the sound of ng as in sang.

The word has a range of meaning that includes to declare, proclaim, announce or even preach. The Apostle Paul used a form of the word, “kataggellete”, in 1 Corinthians 11:23 to explain what we are doing as we partake of the Lord’s Supper. He said that,

"For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come." (1Corinthians 11:26)

The King James Bible uses the picturesque and old fashioned phrasing, ye do shew. But it is, for all that, a very apt translation. Indeed you, we, do show, display, proclaim, announce, declare, the Lord’s Death until He returns by eating of the bread and drinking of the cup in the simple and elegant celebration, given to us by the Lord Himself, that we call the Lord’s Supper.

You may wonder why such a strange name was chosen for the web site. The answer is simple enough, it is easier to type in “kataggello.org” than something like, “kataggellete.org”, or “canwetalkaboutthelordssupper.org”. And kataggello has some claim to being related to the topic of this web site, which is to proclaim the Lord Jesus Christ.
