Dr. Julie Newberry, Assistant Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, joins Dr. Capes on “Exegetically Speaking” to consider the ramifications of the kind of “dark joy” found among the Jerusalem leaders who conspired with Judas to betray Jesus (Luke 22:5). Joy itself is morally ambivalent in Luke’s Gospel. Scoundrels can have joy over some dark act or evil agency.

“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.
