Beelzebub with Doug Penney
Dr. Doug Penney, Associate Professor of Classical Languages at Wheaton College, draws from his detailed research in ancient magic and demonology, especially in terms of the development of names of demons, to discuss the name Beelzebub (Beelzebul) and some other background to the controversy between Jesus and his accusers in Matthew 12.

“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.
