Latter-day Saints have several different books of scripture and obviously one of them is the Bible. The Bible is translated from Greek and Hebrew. Robert studied Greek and Hebrew within his theological program and I study ancient languages for my schooling as well, so on this podcast, we give you two different perspectives on how to learn Greek and Hebrew. This is followed by a short conversation about sola scriptura and a Latter-day Saint view of scripture.
Here are some important links from the podcast:
