DESCRIPTION: Have you ever wondered why English translations of the Bible are not all the same? It is because they are translations of another language! The Bible was originally written in Hebrew (the Old Testament) and Greek (the New Testament). Today’s translations are attempts to render those languages for our time and culture. Studying God's Word in Greek or Hebrew illuminates truth in ways that do not happen with any translation. In this exciting webinar, Jackson Painter, (Ph.D., New Testament) explains the importance of knowing Biblical Languages, and he illustrates, in particular, how knowing Greek transforms the way you read and understand the New Testament.
- Which Bible translation(s) should I use?
- Why do Christians need to know Greek and Hebrew?
- How does knowing Greek help me know God better?
- What is the best way to learn Greek?
ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Dr. Jackson Painter has been teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels for over two decades. Being fluent in biblical Greek and Hebrew, he has many keen insights into God’s Word.

Given Jack’s dedication as a father, he only recently began to take the bulk of his leisure to develop his original research primarily on the Book of Jude. Though Dr. Painter has presented numerous scholarly papers on a variety of New Testament topics, his publishing contributions that could influence future scholarship are imminently forthcoming.
Dr. Painter earned his Ph.D. at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. For is Professor of New Testament and Greek at Simpson University and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at A. W. Tozer Theological Seminary. His first published volume, The Gospel of John: A Thematic Approach (Wipf & Stock, 2010) develops the motifs of witness, testimony, and identity.
