The Maltz Museum in Beachwood, Ohio


THE MALTZ MUSEUM (Beachwood, Ohio)

We ended a 2006 “vacation” with a visit to the Maltz Museum outside Cleveland Heights, Ohio, stopping as we headed home after visiting our son’s home in Cleveland Heights. Members of Nolan’s church were speaking about an exhibit there. Since I was working on an assignment to write an article on a holocaust survivor, we decided it was worth visiting.

The Lord’s Prayer (part 3)

Today we will look at the rest of the Lord’s Prayer.

  Matthew 6:13-15

13Keep us from being tempted and protect us from evil.

14If you forgive others for the wrongs they do to you, your Father in heaven will forgive you.

15But if you don’t forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.

     The optional ending of verse 13, as noted in The New International Version, is: for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen,” a modernization of: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. It is missing from the current translations, except the New King James Version, while in the other versions it is noted at the bottom of the page.
