Dr. Lee Roy Martin

I am Dr. Lee Roy Martin. I am a former pastor and now Associate Pastor. I also am a professor of Old Testament and Biblical languages at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary.

I developed this course for those interested in sharpening their skills to properly interpret the Bible for today’s church. Through TV, social media, and the internet, we are faced with a dizzying array of biblical interpretations. Some are good and edifying, but others are little more than sensationalism at best and false teaching at worst. How do we discern the difference between good and bad?

This course provides the biblical foundations on the importance of the Bible and its interpretation as well as provides concrete and practical insights on how to carry out good interpretations of the Scriptures. If you are a Minister of the Word, this course is certainly for you!
