John Meade on “What makes a good Biblical Scholar or Theologian?”

I have always appreciated reading and listening to those scholars who have both a command over the relevant, classical languages and a direct knowledge of the primary sources in their disciplines.

These same scholars can also bring their skill and knowledge to bear on old questions and problems to create new and fresh solutions in constructive conversation and interaction with other scholars in the guild. I aspire to be this scholar and encourage my students towards the same.
