This article introduces the reader to the study of oral communication in primarily oral cultures and its application to biblical studies and then goes on to illustrate the value of such study by looking at Romans 8:31-34 from the vantage point of its signs of orality. Such a study should open us to new insights into texts and also lead us to helpful understandings of preaching in our own cultures.
