Top Highlights

“Likewise, the study of Hebrew is not an end in itself. The end goal of studying Hebrew is to know the God who has revealed himself through his word.” (Page 2)

“‘Weakness in Greek and Hebrew also gives rise to exegetical imprecision and carelessness. And exegetical imprecision is the mother of liberal theology.’” (Page 17)

“Studies have shown that the average person can recall only seven discrete things at a time.7” (Page 54)

“‘Reading the Bible in translation is like kissing your new bride through a veil.’” (Page 4)

“A. T. Robertson observed, ‘If theological education will increase your power for Christ, is it not your duty to gain that added power? Never say you are losing time by going to school. You are saving time, buying it up for the future and storing it away. Time used in storing power is not lost.’” (Pages 8–9)
