About Us

“Exegetically Speaking” is a weekly podcast of the friends and faculty of Wheaton College, IL and the Lanier Theological Library. Hosted by Dr. David Capes, former Dean of the School of Biblical & Theological Studies and Professor of New Testament, it features language experts discussing the importance of learning the biblical languages—Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek—and showing how reading the Bible in the original “pays off.” Each podcast lasts between seven and eleven minutes and covers a different topic for those who want to read the Bible for all it is worth. If you have questions or comments, please contact us at bts.graduate.studies@wheaton.edu. And keep listening.

Strategic Ambiguity ‘East of Eden’: Genesis 4:7

Dr. Adam E. Miglio, Associate Professor of Archaeology at Wheaton College, demonstrates that exegesis involves knowing more than grammar and vocabulary. Often biblical authors employ strategic ambiguity to cause us to slow down and ask what a word or phrase means. He treats Genesis 4.7 and the phrase “you must/will rule over it,” which characterizes life ‘East of Eden’.
