Quote of the Day

“The Pastor ought to have two voices: one, for gathering the sheep; and another, for warding off and driving away wolves and thieves. The Scripture supplies him with the means of doing both.”

John Calvin


Worth Reading

On My Shelf: Life and Books with Marvin Olasky

“On My Shelf helps you get to know various writers through a behind-the-scenes glimpse into their lives as readers.”

Chiasms On The Brain

“I was recently asked some questions about chiasms: Are biblical scholars just bored and seeing things? Would ancient audiences have picked up on them? Is this a widely attested ancient Near Eastern device? Do lay Bible readers have any hope of seeing them or must they consult commentaries?”

Do You Break These Rules for Greek and Hebrew Study?

“I am a member of OLSHA, the Original Languages Safely Handled Association. Our mission—well, okay, my mission (nobody else has yet joined the association)—is to help people who love Scripture but don’t know Greek and Hebrew to use the original languages safely in their Bible study.”

How To Be Conformed to the World

“Romans 12:2 is consistently one of the most quoted verses in the Bible. In that little passage we are warned that there are forces competing for our attention and loyalty and that even Christians are at times torn between the two.”

Is It a Waste of Time for Seminary Students (and Pastors) to Learn the Biblical Languages?

“In another month or so, a new crop of seminary students will begin the grueling month-long experience of Summer Greek.   And, like all seminary students before them, they will begin to ask the question of why studying these ancient languages even matters.”
