From Grammar to Christlikeness with Steve Runge, Philippians 2:1-11

Dr. Steven Runge is Professor of Biblical Languages at Grace School of Theology in Houston and Senior Research Associate at the John W. Wevers Institute for Septuagint Studies at Trinity Western University. Among other things, he has authored, Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament: A Practical Introduction for Teaching and Exegesis, and he is General Editor of the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament. In this episode he helps us notice the linguistic clues in Phil. 2:1-11 leading us to Paul’s main concern: that we should have the mindset that was operative in Christ’s self-giving, self-lowering, obedient service.

Matthew Norton, Wheaton College Football

Matthew Norton is an alum of Wheaton College’s Classical Languages major and its MA in Biblical Exegesis. He is presently enrolled in the School of Medicine at Louisiana State University Health Shreveport. His journey with the classical languages took him from high school through college until he determined that he would serve through a career in medicine. He remains a student of the languages, and in this episode he unpacks a commonly cited line of Paul: I can do (endure) all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Pre-incarnate Bling in the Christ-Hymn (Philippians 2:5-11)

Dr. Nijay Gupta, Professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary, has authored several books and articles, including his recent, Paul and the Language of Faith(Eerdmans, 2020). Recently, we had the chance to connect on Exegetically Speaking to discuss the “poetic” language of one of the New Testament’s most important passages about Christ. Nijay questions whether we’re dealing here with poetry or something else. He prefers to call it an Ode to Christ. As I recall, Gordon Fee referred to it as exalted prose. At any rate, Dr. Gupta does a great job helping us work through part of this passage, one of the most famous in the New Testament.
