Moises Silva

I had the most terrible search today!

“moises silva liberal”

Now I don’t mind the term liberal depending on how its used, but generally when its applied to scholars, its used in a condemning way – like the way Jim West uses the term Fundie.

If that’s the case and I fear that it is, this is a terrible slander of one of my favorite scholars.

Please, do not label people like that. The question is not whether Silva is liberal or conservative, but whether he does his homework in his academic work. And you know what, He DOES. Silva is a brilliant scholar in both the Old and New Testaments – one of the few leading scholars with excellent training in linguistics. His work in textual criticism, semantics, Greek grammar, exegesis and hermeneutics has all been excellent.

(I have a feeling that my title will catch Esteban’s attention…)
