Office Hours: Campegius Vitringa

Office Hours 2016 full sizeGod’s people have been reading and studying His Word for a very long time but much of that work is lost to most of us because it remains untranslated from Latin (0r Greek). The Reformed tradition begins with a profound commitment to sola Scriptura, the unique, sole, and final authority of God’s Word for the Christian faith and the Christian life. Campegius Vitringa is one of our forefathers about whom you have probably not heard but Charles Telfer has.  Vitringa was a Reformed Old Testament scholar, biblical commentator, and theologian. Charles has just published Wrestling with Isaiah: The Exegetical Methodology of Campegius Vitringa (1693–1722) and he joins us to  introduce us to Vitringa’s life and work.

Here is the episode.
