Understanding Transliteration in Bible Translation

Dr. David Capes, Lanier Theological Library

Our most popular podcast in the series “Exegetically Speaking” has been one I did on my own. It was entitled “Avoiding Transliteration in Biblie Translation.” But in fact, I’m not sure the title did the podcast justice because the gist of it was not about “avoiding transliteration” but about understanding it as part of the history and texture of our own, modern translations. It happens also to be the shortest podcast we did as well. If you don’t know what transliterations are, take five minutes and listen.

“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.

Son-of-God-in-power, Romans 1:3-4 with Matthew Bates

Dr. Matthew Bates, Quincy University

Dr. Matthew Bates is Associate Professor of Theology at Quincy University. He recalls how, having majored in physics as an undergraduate, he learned beginning Greek independently before jumping into second-year Greek in seminary. Among his several publications are The Birth of the Trinity (Oxford, 2015) and Salvation by Allegiance Alone(Baker, 2017). In this episode he reveals how Paul’s choice of verbiage in an important summary of the gospel indicates his conceptions of Christ’s nature and history, especially both his divine pre-existence and his exaltation.

Reckoning with Race–Vince Bacote

Dr. Vincent Bacote, Wheaton College

Dr. Vince Bacote, Associate Professor of Theology and Director of the Center for Applied Christian Ethics at Wheaton College, joins David Capes to talk about his new book, Reckoning with Race and Performing the Good News: In Search of a Better Evangelical Theology (Brill, 2020).  Dr. Bacote is interested in rehabilitating the evangelical movement when it comes to how racial minorities fit into its life.  For too long the good news, while central to evangelical theology and life, has not always been good for minorities.  The polarization now in the west is due in large part because majorities and minorities are speaking past each another rather than finding a place at the table for one another.  According to Bacote, theology and ethics belong together and are not separate spheres of life and thought.  After discussing the meaning of “racism” and “critical race theory,” Bacote offers concrete proposals for what serious Christians and a thoughtful church can do next.  To learn more about Dr. Vince Bacote and his work, go to his website http://www.vincentbacote.com.

“How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?”-Dr. Carmen Imes

Dr. Carmen Imes, Biola

Carmen Imes (Ph.D., Wheaton College) is Associate Professor Old Testament at Prairie College (Canada).

Wait! At the time we recorded this podcast, Dr. Imes was Associate Professor of Old Testament at Prairie College. Now she is taken up a new post at Biola in California.

She has published several works and is working on a second book for InterVarsity Press entitled Bearing God’s Image. She talks about her own history with the Hebrew language, and discusses the phrase in Ecclesiastes sometimes translated as “Meaningless!” Maybe “vapor” or “fleeting” would be a better rendering.
