So last Monday I began studying Greek at Dallas Theological Seminary. It has been a challenging and exciting week and a half. A lot of studying, a lot of flashcards, a lot of paradigms, declensions, and parsing. I will admit though, in spite of all of the craziness of Greek, it has been amazing to dive head first into the language of the New Testament. Dr. Daniel Wallace, one of the professors of Greek wrote an article on the importance of the study of the ancient languages. I want to share some of what he wrote:
I feel honored to be joining the rank of men who have protected the word of God and it’s original intention. I just hope that future ministers will never view the languages as irrelevant.
