Nerdy Language Majors on Facebook

Where biblical language geeks congregate.

"... is open to anyone interested in the Biblical languages and how they impact exegesis"

Recently joined a highly informative Facebook group where people interested in the biblical languages can post all manner of news and views about Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek translation. It's called "Nerdy Language Majors." The site's administrators are headed by Dr William Varner, who is an under-pastor of John MacArthur at Grace Community Church and a professor at The Master's University, where MacArthur is president. That notwithstanding, it's a very apolitical, open board, where the discussions are focused squarely on issues around language interpretation.

I've only been on the group for a couple of weeks, but I've already learned about heaps of exciting stuff I wasn't aware of. For example, this great new Cambridge Ancient Greek lexicon is coming out soon:

And did you know there was an illustrated Greek-English Gospel of Mark? I didn't. It's called Mark: GlossaHouse Illustrated Greek-English New Testament:

Really cool, huh? I knew you'd appreciate those!

So, click here to take a look at Nerdy Language Majors, or see the link I've pasted on the right margin (fyi, the links are now arranged alphabetically).

Take care & God bless!
