PETER LILLBACK: It is a privilege today to interview Dr. Richard B. Gaffin Jr. He has been a professor for many years at Westminster Theological Seminary here in Philadelphia, known for his work in New Testament, biblical theology, and systematics. He has been very active in the church and in the overseas missions committee of his denomination, the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Our interview celebrates his work as a theologian, Bible scholar, and exegete, and it is part of the broader remembrance of the five-hundredth anniversary of Erasmus’s publishing of the first Greek New Testament in 1516. This year, 2016, is the five-hundredth anniversary of the original published version of the New Testament that is used around the world. It is quite a milestone.
RICHARD GAFFIN: Thank you, Peter. Great to be with you!
