Yes, I’ll get back to the baptism topic, but anyone interested in Greek exegesis and NT interpretation should become familiar with the new Discourse database tools we’re pioneering at Logos. These tools will (finally) be the bridge between traditional approaches to Greek syntax and the mysterious world of linguistics (the wya languages *really* work). The guy behind this is Dr. Steve Runge who, I’m happy to say, I lobbied for when we were considering hiring him. I think it was a good investment.

Here are two recent videos from Steve illustrating a couple of the concepts behind the “HDNT” and his Discourse Grammar of the Greek NT:

1. The Lighter Side of Discourse Analysis: Changed Reference

2. The Lighter Side of Discourse Analysis: Thematic Highlighting

For those of you really into Greek, you might enjoy this exchange between Dan Wallace, Steve, and Rod Decker.
