Dr. Clint Burnett
Dr. D. Clint Burnett, Lecturer in New Testament at Johnson University, specializes in the study of the material culture of the classical world and how it aids interpretation of the New Testament. In that vein, he has authored Studying the New Testament through Inscriptions (Hendrickson, 2020). In this conversation with David Capes he recounts his earliest years with the Greek language and demonstrates how even a little knowledge of Greek can illuminate a letter like Philemon.

“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.
