There may be few topics that strike equal amounts of excitement in NEW seminary students, and guilt in GRADUATED seminary students, than the use of the Bible’s original languages, In this episode of EWRW, Dr. Pribbenow and Dr. Berge explain why knowing and using the original languages is important, and offer some practical suggestions on how to maintain and grow your use of them for preaching and teaching.
