“Exegetically Speaking” is a weekly podcast of the friends and faculty of Wheaton College, IL. 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. If you have questions or comments, please contact us at bts.graduate.studies@wheaton.edu. And keep listening.

Dr. Jonathan Linebaugh, Lecturer in New Testament at Cambridge and Fellow of Jesus College, helps us slow down and read Romans 3.21-26.  In particular, he considers the Greek verb, dikaioō (to justify, make right, rectify) at the beginning of 3.24. He asks who is one who justifies and who is justified. The surprising thing about the gospel is that in Christ God has come on the scene to make all things right and he begins by making right those who are sinners and who lack God’s glory.
