Dr. Steven Runge is Professor of Biblical Languages at Grace School of Theology in Houston and Senior Research Associate at the John W. Wevers Institute for Septuagint Studies at Trinity Western University. Among other things, he has authored, Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament: A Practical Introduction for Teaching and Exegesis, and he is General Editor of the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament. In this episode he helps us notice the linguistic clues in Phil. 2:1-11 leading us to Paul’s main concern: that we should have the mindset that was operative in Christ’s self-giving, self-lowering, obedient service.

“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.
