I thought I would post the two papers I wrote this past spring semester.
One was for my Old Testament Poetry and Wisdom class, for which I wrote an exegetical paper on Psalm 115, which engages in a so-called Christological “second reading,” (a hermeneutical methodology which some at Westminster find objectionable for reasons too arcane to get into here). Find the paper here: Psalm 115: The Resurrected Remnant as a Smouldering Stump.
The second paper is an exploration of Paul’s uses of Habakkuk 2:4 in Romans 1:17 from text-historical and exegetical perspectives. This I wrote for an elective in Biblical Translation, and which also ended up winning an award entitled the Thomas E. Welmers Memorial Prize in Biblical Languages and Exegesis (here). The paper, which is rather uncreatively titled, can be found here: Paul’s Use of Habakkuk 2:4 in Romans 1:17.
