Dr. Michael Graves is the Armerding Professor of Biblical Studies at Wheaton College. Among his publications are The Inspiration and Interpretation of Scripture: What the Early Church Can Teach Us (Eerdmans, 2014), and the forthcoming How Scripture Interprets Scripture: What Biblical Writers Can Teach us About Reading the Bible (Baker, 2021). In this episode he illustrates the fascinating range of nuances carried by Greek adverbial participles and the interpretive, sometimes debated choices that translators must make. Our translations are good, but knowledge of the Greek is best.
