Amy Peeler on “What makes a good Biblical Scholar?”

What makes a good Biblical Scholar? Passion for the subject. If you are going to inspire from the lectern or the pulpit or with the pen, you have to love what you are talking about.

Thorough knowledge of the languages is a must, as is constant engagement with the historical and hermeneutical conversations throughout time, across the world, and in your own setting.

Amy Beverage Peeler is Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College.
