This past Saturday we had the honor of spending time with Professor David Black from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in the book of Philippians. Dr. David Black is Professor of New Testament and Greek at Southeastern where he has been teaching for 13 years. He holds the D.Theol. in New Testament from the University of Basel (Switzerland) and has done additional studies in Germany and Israel. Dr. Black is considered a leading authority on linguistics and New Testament Interpretation. He has written over 100 articles and authored or edited over 20 books.

I have tried to pull together some articles and blogs on the book of Philippians that Dave has written over the years for supplement to the seminar and the articles we handed out.

  1. Introducing Philippians
  2. Philippians 1:1
  3. Philippians 1:8
  4. Philippians 1:27-30
  5. Philippians 2:1-11
  6. The Poem in Philippians 2:6-11
  7. Philippians 2:12-18

Several people asked me where to find Dave’s Introductory Greek Textbook. Here is a link to Learn to Read New Testament Greek and the Workbook.

While Dave’s academic credentials are impressive, they are not where he finds his identity and security. It was quite clear this past Saturday that he finds his joy, identity, and security in Christ and in Christ alone. This is much more impressive, in the appropriate sense, than his intelligence. Dave’s love for God’s word and God’s people is contagious. It was an honor to host him here at Calvary! Here are a few more links:

  1. Dr. Black’s Web-Site
  2. Dr. Black’s Books
  3. Dr. Black’s Blog
  4. Dr. Black’s Ministry in Ethiopia
  5. Dave and Becky’s Cancer Journey
  6. Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
