“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. Joshua Jipp is Associate Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Among his other publication are Saved by Faith and Hospitality (Eerdmans, 2017) and The Messianic Theology of the New Testament (Eerdmans, 2020). He argues that “Christ” is not only a name for Jesus when it is used in many NT passages, but a title: messiah, anointed one. He talks about the OT background and significance of this title when it is used by Paul in Ephesians and elsewhere.
