The Name of God

Dr. Aubrey Buster, Assistant Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, joins me on “Exegetically Speaking” to discuss the meaning of the Hebrew Name that God takes for himself during his first appearance to Moses. What its meaning was, why it was given, how it has been spelled and pronounced in the Hebrew and English traditions, and why these later forms were adopted.

The podcast is about 7 minutes.

“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.

Playing with Words

Michelle Knight (PhD, Wheaton College), Assistant Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, takes us through several passages to show how meaning is constructed sometimes by playing with words. In the Tower of Babel account (Genesis 11), the people build a tower to make a name (shem) for themselves but God foils their plan and makes Shem, the ancestor of Abraham. More examples await!    Michelle Knight
