Description

In this lecture Peterson describes his experience of teaching an adult Bible study class on Galatians as he started to paraphrase the passages in "street language" so that it came alive to the participants. He makes the case that this "street language" usage is in sync with the type of Greek language used in the New Testament. Peterson also shares a reading of some passages from his work which was later published as "The Message".
