“Exegetically Speaking” is a weekly podcast of the friends and faculty of Wheaton College, IL and The Lanier Theological Library. 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.

Hints of the identity of the man and woman together as God’s sacred space have been latent but unrecognized in the Hebrew language of Gen. 2:21-22. In this, our 200th episode, Dr. Ingrid Faro uncovers what the language has to tell us. She is the Coordinator of the MA in Old Testament Program at Northern Seminary in Lisle, IL, where she teaches the Hebrew Bible. Among other things, she is the author of  Evil in Genesis: A Contextual Analysis of Hebrew Lexemes for Evil in the Book of Genesis. She recently lectured at the Lanier Theological Library on “Deconstructing Evil,” and her forthcoming book is Demystifying Evil: A Biblical and Personal Exploration (IVP).
