Dr. Phillip Marshal, HBU

Dr. Phillip Marshall is Assistant Professor of Biblical Languages in the School of Christian Thought, Houston Baptist University. He completed his doctoral work in the ancient Greek versions of the Hebrew OT, that is, in Septuagint studies, which helped engender his love for both Greek and Hebrew.

Tobit: Reading outside the Canon

Dr. Doug Penney on “Exegetically Speaking”

One of the best things you can do to work on your Greek is to read outside the canon. Why? Because it forces you to translate every word rather than to rely on your memory of the English Bible. Dr. Doug Penney, Associate Professor of Classical Languages at Wheaton College, is an expert in reading Greek and reading outside the canon. He joins me on “Exegetically Speaking” to discuss how he encourages students to read outside the canon of Scripture in order to sharpen their translation skills. Reading Tobit, a book of the Apocrypha, takes them to a text they do not know. There are also a few surprises here as well that help us understand better the world of the Bible.
