“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.

Dr. Dennis Edwards is Vice President for Church Relations and Dean of the Seminary at North Park University. Among other things, he has authored Might from the Margins: The Gospel's Power to Turn the Tables on Injustice and 1 Peter (The Story of God Bible Commentary Book 17). Today’s topic: A word otherwise unused in the NT is chosen by Peter to command all his readers to “clothe yourselves” with humility. These one-time (hapax legomena) words can be interesting. What might be the implications in 1 Peter 5:5?
