Naked Bible Podcast Episode 033: Word Studies, Part 2

Posted By on February 11, 2013

Episode 33 continues our series on Bible study at the word level. Last time we talked about word usage as it pertains to usage by a single biblical author within the scope of that author’s writings.  Our launching point then was the lemma behind “unmarried” in 1 Cor 7. The lemma was used only four times in the New Testament, all within that chapter of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. This episode focuses on thinking about word usage in relation to other words — specifically, synonyms and grammatical relationships. Our starting point is the Hebrew word bara’, the lemma behind the word “created” in Gen 1:1.

    In your view, or the biblical view. What is the difference from preaching and bible studies?

    • MSH says:

      preaching is about exhortation, study is about research and the explanation of the results. Ideally (biblically, I’d say), exhortation (preaching) should be based on content drawn from the text.
