A Daily Dose of Greek

Dr. Robert Plummer,  the Collin and Eveyln Aikman Professor of Biblical Studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, started a free daily 2-minute screencast about five years ago designed to help pastors, seminary students, and others keep reading their Greek New Testaments. He describes how it has grown into thousands of archived episodes and expanded to do the same for Hebrew and Latin. There are Spanish versions of the Greek and Hebrew screencasts as well. Two to three minutes a day in the text. It’s like having a free personal trainer for your languages!

Deliver Us from Evil?

The final petition of the Lord’s Prayer, the one many memorized, ended “deliver us from evil” (Matthew 6). It is as if evil is this abstract thing from which we need protection. But modern translations have opted for a different reading. In this episode of Exegetically Speaking, I talk with Dr. Robert Plummer, the Collin and Evelyn Aikman Professor of Biblical Studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the host of the Daily Dose of Greek screencast (dailydoseofgreek.com), who considers whether the Lord teaches us to pray for deliverance from evil in general, as many translations have it, or from “the evil one,” the devil. Grammar and context, he argues, favor taking it as a reference to the devil.
