Studies in Greek Language & Linguistics…

Interview with Larry Hurtado

Some have already pointed to it, but its worth repeating.

Go check out the interview with Larry Hurtado of the University of Edinburgh by Matt at BROADCAST DEPTH:

Interview with Larry Hurtado

My favorite quote:

Commit yourself also to fair and self-critical engagement with scholarship.  My PhD supervisor (E. J. Epp) insisted on one rule above all others, and I re-affirm it:  Make sure that you accurately represent the views of others, especially those with whom you disagree.  Cheap polemics are of no value to anyone.  The NT texts and the scholarship on them will require the most conscientious self-discipline of mind and spirit, and the honing of critical and expressive abilities.  But I think these texts are worth the effort!

    I like that. There’s something to strive for in the studies. I’m finding the further I progress in my phd, the more I’m trying to approach ‘rival’ viewpoints positively.

    On another topic: 2 searches have arrived at my site today, looking for “Mike Aubrey mustache” and another one searching for “Mike Aubrey bald mustache”… do you have a bald mustache????

    What does “HT” mean, pray tell? Not even Wikipedia, the source of all wisdom, provides a reasonable answer. I would like to know if I should be using this.
