John Williams, Star Wars, and the March of Kingship

Dr. Adam Miglio, Associate Professor of Archaeology at Wheaton College, discusses the way Hebrew words are repeated in order to provide a “bread crumb trail” to focus our attention on key themes we might miss in translation.  It’s not unlike the musical score of “Star Wars.” Adam Miglio wheaton.jpg

From Text to Sermon

 

 

Recently on Exegetically Speaking I had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Josh Moody, pastor of College Church (located right next to Wheaton College).  Our conversation had to do with how he, an expert expository preacher, goes from text to sermon. Josh Moody

Can We Change the Orders? (Part two)

Part two of a conversation with Dr. Gene Green, professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, regarding the word hupotassō, often translated “submit” in 1 Peter and other NT books. He asks the question where and when should we “change the orders” rather than just to submit to them. Jonathan Blanchard, one of the founders of Wheaton College, was a respected abolitionist who looked at the “order” of society, challenged it, and ultimately helped to abolish slavery. Are there other orders in society that we should challenge and not just accept?Gene Green

Daughters and Sons

Dr. Amy Peeler, associate professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, endorses the impulse toward gender inclusive language in translation. But in some cases she thinks exclusive language may better capture the argument of the text. In Hebrews 2:10 she suggests it is better to read “children” (NRSV) or “sons and daughters” (NIV)  as “sons” because of its Christological implications, and subsequent empowerment of female readers.
