Dr. Alexander Loney is Associate Professor of Classical Languages at Wheaton College, where he teaches beginning to advanced Latin along with classical Greek reading courses. His research deals especially with archaic and classical poetry, as well as with how early Christians received and responded to Greek myth and literature. How did someone closer to the culture and time of the NT, Jerome, understand the Greek wording of Matthew 6:11 through his Latin? And does Jesus teach his followers to pray for bread “necessary for this day,” or “that is sacramental,” or possibly “of the future kingdom”?
