Dr. Stephens discusses the importance of language in Scripture and describes the excitement of studying linguistics as a believer.

"If I had to pick one, I would say Dr. Barham. He is one of the kindest people I have ever met, and is also one of the smartest. While Dr. Barham is brilliant, he teaches in a way that makes you feel smart, like you are one of his peers. If you have not taken a class from him, I would highly recommend it."
