New Testament Lectures

Postby swiftnicholas » Sun Jan 03, 2010 10:25 pm

I know that there are a number of people here interested in biblical Greek, or at least there used to be. I just discovered this series of lectures on New Testament History and Literature delivered at Yale by Dale Martin in the Spring of 2009. It seems like a good introduction to New Testament studies as far as I can tell.

Those look really interesting and comprehensive. Thanks for sharing this. Considering that the professor states that the course will be about the New Testament "not as scripture, or a piece of authoritative holy writing, but as a collection of historical documents," I think it should appeal to even those not interested in Biblical Greek.

(I'm glad nobody films my lectures...)

Edit: Wow, there are a LOT of really interesting looking lectures on a wide variety of subjects. Where to begin! If I weren't in school, I'd be watching these every day!

Tell me about it! I've been watching courses intensively on my breaks, but I can't get to them on a regular basis. For Classics, there is a good series on Greek History by Donald Kagan at Yale.
