Dr. Julie Newberry, Assistant Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, investigates the language of Joy and rejoicing in the Gospel of Luke. She recently finished her PhD at Duke University and defended her dissertation. Congratulations, Julie. She stops by Exegetically Speaking to suggest the angel’s greeting (Luke 1:28) to Mary might not be just a greeting after all. She considers the contrast between Zechariah’s encounter and Mary’s.

“Exegetically Speaking” is a weekly podcast of the friends and faculty of Wheaton College, IL and The Lanier Theological Library. Hosted by Dr. David Capes, it features language experts who discuss the importance of learning the biblical languages—Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek—and show how reading the Bible in the original languages “pays off.” Each podcast lasts between seven and eleven minutes and covers a different topic for those who want to read the Bible for all it is worth.
