Daniel Wallace

  • Dr. Wallace influences students across the country through his textbook on intermediate Greek grammar. It has become the standard textbook in the English-speaking world on that subject. He is a member of the Society of New Testament Studies, the Institute for Biblical Research, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the Evangelical Theological Society. Dr. Wallace is also the senior New Testament editor of the NET Bible and coeditor of the NET-Nestle Greek-English diglot. He has been a consultant on four different Bible translations.

    Recently his scholarship has begun to focus on John, Mark, and nascent Christology. He works extensively in textual criticism, and has founded The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (csntm.org), an institute with an initial purpose of preserving Scripture by taking digital photographs of all known Greek New Testament manuscripts. He has traveled the world in search of biblical manuscripts. His postdoctoral work includes work on Greek grammar at Tyndale House in Cambridge, textual criticism studies at the Institut für neutestamentliche Textforschung in Münster, and the Universität Tübingen, Germany. He is in demand as a speaker at churches, colleges, and conferences. Dr. Wallace and his wife, Pati, have four adult sons, three daughters-in-law, one granddaughter, a Beagle, a Labrador Retriever, and a cat. They enjoy all their children and the dogs.

    The Egyptian Book of the Dead
     
    Dr. Daniel Wallace, one of the world’s leading experts in New Testament Greek and New Testament manuscripts, addresses the supposed links between Christ’s resurrection story and that of Osiris, the Egyptian god whose story is told in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Many of the parallels made between the Christian history and the Mystery Religions are not close at all. More often what we find is that the religions of the time changed their stories to fit that of the early Christians.
     
    What does the bible say about speaking in tongues?
     
    “What we should be focusing on is our relationship to Jesus Christ and to each other,” Dr. Daniel Wallace says in response to questions about the use of spiritual gifts today. When talking about spiritual gifts and speaking in tongues, it’s important to look at chapters 12, 13 and 14 of 1 Corinthians where Paul addresses not only spiritual gifts, but also love. Whether or not you know what your spiritual gift is or you use it, the most important thing is to demonstrate love toward each other.
     
    Explain the book of Jude?
     
    The book of Jude references several passages from the Apocrypha, a selection of ancient writings that are excluded from most Biblical cannons. Jude quotes from these often disputed sources with good reason, says Dr. Daniel Wallace, one of the world’s leading experts in New Testament Greek and New Testament manuscripts. The books of the Apocrypha are important inter-testamental histories that explain the shift from the Old Testament to the New Testament.
