If you’re going to be a competent minister of God’s Word you really should familiarize yourself with the biblical languages. As Wright says in this interview, “Trying to study the Bible without knowing the original languages is like trying to play Beethoven on a mouth organ. You may be able to get some of the tune but it won’t actually be what the guy had in mind.” Even if you didn’t have the benefit of seminary, there are tools that will help you. If you went to seminary, you should be able to pick it up again without too much trouble, but it will take work. Either way, any time and effort you invest will definitely be worth it.
