The latest podcast is up!

 

#153) Illuminating "Day" (Heb. yom)

 

What does the word “day” mean in Genesis 1:5? This podcast is a study of this question, one of the critical issues for interpreting the Creation account in Genesis 1. Using “day” as a case study, Dr. J shows both the correct and the incorrect ways to study a word in the Bible. In the process, he demonstrates five features in Accordance that make quick word studies easy—and sheds some “light” on this contentious issue.

 

Enjoy!

Another job well done!! I personally benefit from the reminder of all the different ways of doing things in Accordance, I have my way and tend to stick with it and forget the others.

 

Thanks Dr. J.!

I trust the forum reacted positively when you added some scholarly content into their discussion!

Thanks as always for your hard work.

Sorry to say, the podcast has been largely ignored to date. It got two "likes," one from a former professor of mine. :-|

 

As we all know, some folks would rather argue than learn. (sigh) I'm reminded of the importance of "teach-ability."

Sorry to hear about people ignoring the podcast. I certainly enjoyed it. I used the methods you outlined when I taught a series on Genesis 1-12 in the adult Sunday School class I lead. Keep up the good work Dr. J and don't be discouraged.

 

Soli Deo Gloria,

Randy

I  really appreciated the emphasis on understanding what word actually means and not attaching modern day definitions to it.  It was a great reminder!  Love your podcasts!!

We live in a social media age where we often judge our effectiveness by "likes." I would not consider it "ignored" as I know I watched and appreciated it. Something has to really move me to click the "like" button now. What I like is your practical approach that demonstrates the abilities and techniques for using Accordance in addressing biblical studies.

Dr. J –  I also enjoyed it, but just found it today!  I've been absorbed with my school work and have basically been out of touch.  Additionally, neither #153 nor #152 has appeared among my iTunes podcasts.

 

P.S.  Mounce talked about "fog" in Greek 1.  Our Hebrew prof has talked out "Hebrew soup."  I think fog is appropriate for Greek, and it really does clear in a reasonable length of time.  Hebrew, I've concluded, is more like quicksand.  I'm hoping I won't go under.  I'm losing vocab as fast as I'm acquiring it.  However, I'm old enough to be grandmother to almost every student.  And the prof (adjunct) looks like a child to me.  Can't believe he's married and has a son – doesn't look much over about 18.

Hi, Julie!

 

I'll pass along your comments about several podcast not appearing in your iTunes feed,

 

As to you taking Hebrew: well done! It is harder than Greek. I do have a tip for you. Read aloud and memorize the sound of the Hebrew words. Don't try to memorize the Hebrew word by just reading its spelling in Hebrew characters. Your association of those sounds to Hebrew letters will come in time. It takes a while for the Hebrew letters to sink in—and the changing vowel sounds drive most of us nuts for awhile.

 

Enjoy!


Blessings,
"Dr. J"

Yeah – I'm doing the being driven nuts part really well.  I also object to the vanishing consonants.  I've got visions of dashes and dots dancing in my head, too.  Is it pathological?

 

Well, I'm not planning on taking intermediate Hebrew next fall – 1500 vocab words in one semester is more than I can handle.  However, I'm going to keep up my studies at my pace and I figure that, with enough exposure, it will sink in.  If I can get enough vocab learned in the next 18 months, I may take intermediate Hebrew in fall of 2018.  At age 66.  

 

Thanks for the hints and encouragement.  I figure it's worth it if I end up understanding my Bible better.
