Exegetically Speaking: Context Is Everything (Linguistic Context: 1 Samuel 13:14) - Dr. John Walton

Video from wheatoncollege

"Dr. John Walton, Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College Graduate School, lays out the importance of knowing the context of a passage to understand it. After discussing four kinds of context for exegesis, he focuses on the linguistic context. As a test case, he takes us to 1 Samuel 13:14: “the LORD sought out a man after his own heart [David].” What does that mean? Where does it come from? It might not mean what we always thought." from video introduction
