Michelle Knight (PhD, Wheaton College), Assistant Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, takes us through several passages to show how meaning is constructed sometimes by playing with words. In the Tower of Babel account (Genesis 11), the people build a tower to make a name (shem) for themselves but God foils their plan and makes Shem, the ancestor of Abraham. More examples await!    Michelle Knight
