"The words for ‘wind’ and ‘spirit’ are the same in Hebrew and in Greek"

The word for wind and spirit are the same in Hebrew, “Ruah” and in Greek, “Pneuma”. Ruah is also the word for “blow” and “breath”. The King James Bible translates the Hebrew as “And the Spirit of God moved on the face of the waters.” The image of wind and its identification with creation is a prevalent leitmotif in Riding the Ice Wind.
