Thanks, Ben, this is good news.

Thanks for this Dr. Witherington. I'm finishing up my Masters work online, so I don't get to go to lectures like I used to. This is perhaps odd, but I have missed it, and am happy to get my eyes and ears into this one.

Also, I knew you were from the south, but I never imagined you with a southern drawl. I think most people do not connect southerners with scholarship, so thanks for making us all look better. :)

Ben, where is the lecture on the unity of James and Paul? I can't raise it from the links supplied here.

I really enjoyed the oral culture lecture. I think it is very important to understand that the culture of the Greco-Roman world wasn't text based in the way our own is.

At the Baylor website, they also have your Davinci Code lecture archived. I also found a powerful sermon by Dr. Tony Evans of the Urban ALternative. Was that man born to preach or what!!!!!

I'm guess that the material form your oral culture lecture is going to be important to keep in mind when I read the review copy of Living Word fro Baylor!

The lecture on the Beloved Disciple was the substitute for that one. Not to worry, all this stuff will be coming out in my next book entitled Shifting the Paradigms. Rethinking NT Studies.

Dr. Witherington

Re: Your first lecture.

It was Augustine, not Anselm (1033 - 1109) who saw Ambrose reading silently without moving his lips.

Are you familiar with the work of Walter Ong on the issue of oral vs written and print communication?

Ben Witherington said...

You are quite right that it was Augustine, and we've already had this correction once when I first posted the print transcript of this lecture last month. I have indeed read Ong, but even better are experts on ancient orality, not merely modern orality theory.

Nice Ben, but can we please have these in a format that will work on iPhone and video iPods.

Ben Witherington said...

Sorry, I can't help you Ipod dudes. You'll have to contact Baylor since it's their property.

Dr. Witherington has two Seattle Pacific University lectures about the Modern Jesus on Itunes podcasts. If anyone wants to hear Dr, Witherington lecture on their pods, check it out
