Genesis 3

John Walton, Wheaton College

Dr. John Walton, Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton Graduate School, author of many books and articles relating to the background, literature, and theology of the Old Testament, has contributed several episodes to this podcast. Currently, he is collaborating with his Wheaton colleague, Dr. Aubrey Buster, in writing a commentary on Daniel. In this conversation with David Capes, he gives some fresh and helpful attention to some of the language that God addresses to the rebellious actors of Genesis 3. Consequences of their acts bring, among other things, anxiety about conception and a desire for spousal support in the form of domestic stability and order.

“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.
