Luther on Learning Biblical Languages

Languages are the sheath in which hides the Sword of the Spirit – so although the faith of the gospel may be proclaimed by a preacher without the knowledge of the languages, the preaching will be feeble and ineffective. But where the languages are studied, the proclamation will be fresh and powerful, the Scripture will be searched, and a faith will be constantly rediscovered through ever new words and deeds.
Fred W. Meuser, Luther the Preacher, (Minneapolis: Ausberg, 1983).
