Your lexicon is dangerous for your interpretation of Scripture if you don’t know how to use it! Todd Price (PhD, Corpus Linguistics and NT) explains how not to use your lexicon and why more language nerds might consider being a missionary-scholar.

    The two posts on 1/4/2018 at ExegeticalTools.com seem to be two sides of the same coin

    Your interview describes the need for creating new Bible exposition tools (non-royalty) that would provide the basis for thousands of languages to have those tools available in their native tongues.

    Todd Scacewater’s post describes the difficulty for skilled Bible expositors to find jobs and ways to enhance their CVs by publishing skilled Biblical content

    It would be wonderful if the there was a way for those in seminary studies could gain “publishing credit” for providing content using the tools you described at unfoldingword.org
    Isn’t it far better to create non-royalty tools used by BILLIONS better than being published in a journal that few read containing details beyond the average reader?
