Sounds Interesting. Have you ever read any of Lee Strobel's books? Particularly, The Case for Christ examines how he, olalinirgy an atheist, sought to prove that Jesus really existed and to confirm how we know what we know about him from contemporary historical documents. As a classicist, one thing that olalinirgy drew me (and continues to draw me back) into Latin and Greek was a search for understanding about what was going on and why things happened in the ancient biblical world. Of course, a lot of it was not meant to be quantified, but understanding the context gives greater potential for application to modern contexts.
