Last Wednesday I went to the Reformed Theological Seminary near Orlando to hear a lecture by Prof. Richard Bauckham. Bauckham was the speaker for the annual Kistemaker Academic Lecture Series. His general topic was The Gospels as Histories: What sort of history are they? I suspect that he was reading chapters that will eventually be published in a new book.
I found Bauckham, Professor Emeritus at St. Andrews University, difficult to understand during the lecture because of the his accent, but I was able to keep up with the general thread of his argument.
If you would like a little taste of Bauckham’s argument about Jesus and the Eyewitnesses I suggest you watch this short video by StJohnsNottingham (other interesting videos also available).
I was delighted to pick up a copy of Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony at the bookstore and have it autographed by Prof. Bauckham.
Order Jesus and the Eyewitnesses from Amazon.
Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels As Eyewitness Testimony
Bauckham’s material speaks clearly to the common misconception that the “Church” compiled the Gospels decades, even centuries, after Jesus lived.
