    Default Motivating Original-Language Exegesis

    We're looking for a short article that does a particularly good job making the case for original-language Biblical exegesis. If you have a pointer to such an article, please post it in this thread. Thanks.

    An article that I have on file, and have had since my college days is by Dr. Dennis E. Johnson. The title of the article is: The Peril of Pastors without the Biblical Languages. It was orginally published in Presbyterian Journal, Sept. 1986.

    David A. DeSilva, An Introduction to the New Testament (IVP, 2004)I just ran accross this today. He has an excellent section near the end of most chapters where he discusses exegesis. He calls it "Exegetical Skills." Although I don't agree with all of his points in the book. This unique feature makes the book stand out from the rest.

    BTW: At least in the "Exegetical Skills" related to Ephesians he discusses at length the use of Bible software, including BibleWorks. I am sure he does in other places, but I have not been able to read all 950 pgs as of yet!

    Default Greek in Ministry

    I just started reading a book that has a pretty good section on why a working knowledge of Greek is necessary (Hebrew is also mentioned a few times). Take a look at it: David Allen Black, Using New Testament Greek in Ministry. see pp.21-24.
