My motivation for undertaking theological studies was to be able to read the Bible in its original languages.
Although achieving this goal was not something that was quickly realised, the benefits have been enormous.
Reading the New Testament in the very words that the author penned opens up new horizons of understanding, helps one see the original writers' concerns more clearly, and brings the world of the New Testament alive.
