Dr. Amy Whisenand Krall is Assistant Professor and Assistant Program Director of Biblical & Theological Studies at Fresno Pacific University. Her doctoral research (Duke Divinity School) was in New Testament with an emphasis on theology and music. In this conversation with David Capes she recalls that as a middle-schooler she learned Greek from her father and enjoyed it so much she kept with it through high school, college, seminary, and doctoral studies, eventually branching out to other biblical and modern languages. She sheds some light on the Greek sentence structure of Col. 3:16 and the significance of these lines in the context of Paul’s letter to “God’s holy people in Colossae.”

“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.
