The lecture series will also be held on March 11, March 18, March 25, and April 1, 2009.

Are you lecturing on the Godpel of Judas or on Paul or both?

Ben Witherington said...

Hi Jose:

I lectured on Paul, last Wednesday, and they filmed it.



José Solano said...

But isn't that the last page of the Gospel of Judas in your image for this post?

Ben Witherington said...

It is a page from the Gospel of Judas--- good eye.


Greg said...

Dr. Witherington,

You mentioned that they videotaped it. Is that tape available to view/download?

I really enjoyed your talk and I hope to follow up on the ideas you presented in the coming months.

And again, thanks for the picture!

I too would like to see the lecture since I wasn't there. If it becomes available let us know.

As a lot of Iphone/Ipod users know Amazon has released a application of their kindle for the Iphone/Ipod. So i installed it on my Ipod touch and, since I don't have any Kindle books to use with it, I thought of buy one. Guess what...It a Ben Witherington one. The one one the lord supper.

I think this will take me some time to read (Laundry Mat reading material) But looks good.

Now I can have a pocket version Of Ben anywhere I go.....
