The Gospels as Histories: Richard Bauckham Lectures

Richard Bauckham is on a US speaking tour talking about the Gospels as Histories. For those of you not familiar with Bauckham's work, he is formerly of the University of Saint Andrews and is now spending his retirement years in Cambridge.

Bauckham has made a number of important contributions to New Testament studies. Over the last few years his book Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony has been getting a lot of attention.

Last week Bauckham was at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to give a series of talks. Below are the videos from his lectures. You can watch the here or at the SBTS Resource Site. Many, many thanks to Bill Heroman over at NT/History Blog for pointing these out. Each lecture is just over an hour long.
