Luther on Hebrew & Greek

“Let us be sure of this: we will not long preserve the gospel without the languages. The languages are the sheath in which this sword of the Spirit [Eph. 6:17] is contained; they are the casket in which this jewel is enshrined; they are the vessel in which this wine is held; they are the larder in which this food is stored. . . . If through our neglect we let the languages go (which God forbid!), we shall . . . lose the gospel.”

  1. I’m reading this with my Greek grammar in my lap (procrastination…). Thanks for the encouragement! It’s easy to forget the importance of biblical languages when you’re in the daily grind of learning Greek. Thanks for posting this and giving me a reminder.
