Richard Bauckham Lectures
11/13/2007 - Alan KurschnerThe past week at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, I had the opportunity to sit in on three days of Bauckham lecturing on the "Gospels as History." He distilled some important elements of a future book, and some of his research found in his book, Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospel as Eyewitness Testimony. Here is a pdf of his handouts and notes. Although, they should be supplemented with his audio lectures (I will update this post once I find out when the mp3 lectures will be available for those who are interested. Update: I just learned that there were no recordings made of the lectures, sorry.) Update: On a different subject Bauckham lectured at WSC on "The Four Gospels and the Other Gospels: Is Our Canon Right?" Here is the audio lecture.

This week, Steven Lawson returned as a guest to continue discussing his book, The Expository Genius Of John Calvin. This show can be found here. Steve Camp discussed "The Immutability Of God." This show can be found here. Dr. Charles Curtman discussed "Modern Evangelicalism's Departure From Biblical Christianity," which delved into such things as "easy believism" and "decisional regeneration."

Finally, why are there so many Protestant ministers swimming the Tiber? Chris wrote a helpful answer, found here.
