“How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?”-Dr. Carmen Imes

Dr. Carmen Imes, Biola

Carmen Imes (Ph.D., Wheaton College) is Associate Professor Old Testament at Prairie College (Canada).

Wait! At the time we recorded this podcast, Dr. Imes was Associate Professor of Old Testament at Prairie College. Now she is taken up a new post at Biola in California.

She has published several works and is working on a second book for InterVarsity Press entitled Bearing God’s Image. She talks about her own history with the Hebrew language, and discusses the phrase in Ecclesiastes sometimes translated as “Meaningless!” Maybe “vapor” or “fleeting” would be a better rendering.

“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.
