Recently, Dr. Adam E. Miglio, Associate Professor of Archaeology at Wheaton College, joined me on “Exegetically Speaking” to demonstrate that exegesis involves knowing more than grammar and vocabulary.

“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.

Hawthorne Professor of New Testament Greek and Exegesis at Wheaton College, joins me on Exegetically Speaking to discuss what “syntax” is, why biblical scholars give it emphasis, some of the challenges to be faced in gaining mastery over this side of Greek grammar, and how to meet the challenges.
