How Not To Use Greek In Bible Study

Justin Dillehay has a post over at the The Gospel Coalition called "Three Ways Not to Use Greek in Bible Study." Here is a little sample:
"When it comes to Bible study, many Christians seem to think that knowing Greek is like a magic bullet that will unlock all the secrets of biblical meaning. I once thought this, and then I began studying Greek. The main thing I learned in the first couple of weeks of class was that most of what I thought I knew about Greek was malarky. Turns out that agape and philos aren't really different kinds of love after all, and the gospel isn't really the "dynamite" of God. In many ways, Greek is much more mundane than I had thought. It resolves some questions but also creates others."
