In this episode of the Biblical Languages Podcast, Kevin Grasso and Josh Mann discuss the field of Linguistics and how it can help us to better understand the biblical languages and the Bible. Here's a snapshot of what you can expect:

  • How the field of Linguistics is distinct from but related to the fields of the Biblical Languages and Biblical Studies
  • Three major categories of Linguistics: Semantics, Syntax, and Pragmatics and why they're important
  • Why you shouldn't just ignore the Pluperfect when you're learning Greek paradigms
  • And more!

The biblical examples discussed are Genesis 15:6 and Acts 1:10.

Show notes


The following resources are recommended for getting started with the study of Linguistics:

  1. "Analyzing Grammar" by Paul R. Kroeger
  2. "Analyzing Syntax" by Paul R. Kroeger
  3. "Analyzing Meaning" by Paul R. Kroeger (available for free from the publisher: https://langsci-press.org/catalog/book/231)
