I have decided to add a new feature to my blog. There have been a number of video’s recorded of my lectures and interviews, and I thought it might be interesting to post these on occasion here on the blog combined with my added comments.
My most successful popular book so far has been Misquoting Jesus. After it was out for a while and finally “took off,” I got asked to give a bunch of lectures on the topic. In fact, I still *do* give lectures on the topic. Well, usually, it’s the same lecture! So I won’t be posting every one of them — one is enough. This is one of the earlier ones I did, at Stanford University on April 25, 2007. This was part of Stanford’s Heyns Lecture Series. The lecture was given at Cubberley Auditorium, Stanford University Campus. The lecture was called “Misquoting Jesus: Scribes Who Altered Scripture and Readers Who May Never Know.” The original flyer announcing the event is here in PDF format.
One of the things I especially like about this video clip is that it gives not only the lecture, but the extensive question and answer period that followed it, where I responded to questions from — well — all over the map! If you’ve heard the lecture before, just skip on to the final bit to catch that part.
