Language and exegesis

In this video, Dr. James White has shown why a little Greek is a terrible thing:

This is one consequence of treating Greek and Hebrew as code, instead of languages. This is also one reason why "pastors" like Joseph Prince are to be avoided, because they think the mere mouthing of Greek and Hebrew, and using concordances, make one able to understand the text; it does NOT. While koine Greek and biblical Hebrew are "dead" languages, there was a time when people were actually speaking these languages. Languages do not function like code, and Kerrigan Skelly merely shows what happens when they are treated that way.
