In this episode of the Biblical Languages Podcast, Kevin Grasso interviews Rob Plummer about current trends in biblical language pedagogy, Greek and Hebrew "apostasy", the living language approach, and resources like Beginning with New Testament Greek, Going Deeper with New Testament Greek, Daily Dose of Greek, and the Greek and Hebrew for Life Conference.

Rob Plummer has been teaching at the Southern Seminary for almost 20 years. He is a biblical scholar with a missionary heart. He has served in missionary assignments of varying length in China, Israel, Trinidad, Ghana, Malaysia, Cuba, and Turkey. Plummer has written, co-written, or edited several books, including Greek for Life: Strategies for Learning, Retaining, and Reviving New Testament Greek (Baker, 2017) and Going Deeper with New Testament Greek: An Intermediate Study of the Grammar and Syntax of the New Testament (B&H, 2016). Plummer is perhaps most widely known for his role in founding and hosting the screencast, The Daily Dose of Greek.

Here's a snapshot of what you can expect in this conversation:

  • Plummer's reflections on nearly 20 years of teaching Greek in a seminary context
  • Current trends, both positive and negative, in biblical language pedagogy
  • The decline in seminary enrollment, lowering biblical language requirements, and biblical language "apostasy"
  • How collaboration and unification can help the field progress
  • The benefits of a living language approach and why it isn't more widely adopted
  • And much more!
