The Septuagint is a super-old, super-interesting, super-important Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures (what Christians call the Old Testament). It’s got all the elements of a great story including a fascinating origin legend, lost copies shrouded in the fog of history, and cryptic secrets with huge bearing on how the Bible should be read today.
That sounded like Peter Faulk trying to sell Fred Savage on listening to him read the Princess Bride, and I’m not ashamed of having typed it. It stays.
Matt Whitman believes in God and thinks things are funny. He was raised in Fort Collins, Colorado before moving to Chicago where he graduated from Trinity College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He met his wife Camilla on his first day of college in his first class. They’ve got three kids together and now live in the mountains of beautiful western Wyoming where Matt works as the Senior Pastor of the Lander Evangelical Free Church. Matt’s a teach-straight-through-books-of-the-Bible kind of guy and uses his appreciation of history, humor, culture, and narrative to help people understand God’s Word. In addition to church and family, Matt throws a lot of time at filmmaking. He writes, acts, and directs and also hosts a YouTube program called The Ten Minute Bible Hour in which he teaches books of the Bible in a tight, informative, and funny format.
