At the beginning of the month, Klyne Snodgrass delivered this year’s W. H. Griffith Thomas Memorial Lectureship at Dallas Theological Seminary. In the lectureship, Snodgrass discussed a “hermeneutics of identity” in four parts:
- Part 1 (February 2, Theory and Theology)
- Part 2 (February 3, Gospels)
- Part 3 (February 4, Paul)
- Part 4 (February 5, Church and Ministry)
The whole series is excellent and highly engaging. Snodgrass repeatedly observes the New Testament’s consistent concern with issues related to identity, but he also clearly distinguishes the direction of the New Testament’s robust concern in this area from the directions that this concern’s poorer cousins have taken. Each lecture is around 45 minutes long, and taking about 3 hours to listen to the whole series is fairly certain to be time well spent.
