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.

Living under the Orders (Part One)

In this episode of Exegetically Speaking, Gene Green, professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, discusses how he became a student of Greek through his local, Pentecostal church.  Then he guides us in thinking biblically about submission: to governing authorities (1 Pet 2.13); to masters (1 Pet 2.18); within the family (1 Pet 3.1); to elders (1 Pet 5.5).Gene Green

Phil Keaggy

Recently, Wheaton College started a podcast called “Exegetically Speaking.”  Each episode is about 7 minutes in length and its purpose is to promote the study of the biblical languages: Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic.

I contacted legendary guitarist, Phil Keaggy, to see if he would compose and record music for our introduction and conclusion.  He did so gladly, out of the goodness of heart, and offered us about 14 different possibilities. I was amazed and grateful.  We chose a classical snippet that lasts about 24 seconds.   So now each podcast opens with the music of Phil Keaggy.  It  is bright, hopeful “snippet” that sets the table well for our podcasting efforts.

Take 25 seconds and listen in:
