Hebrew Text Criticism: A Case Study (Lighting the Lamp Video Podcast #165)

May 28, 2018 - Timothy Jenney — Hebrew text criticism requires working with texts in multiple languages.

The textual variants in these verses make all the difference. Check out more episodes of the Lighting the Lamp podcast!
