Last year, Tom Wright and Mike Bird released a book and video classes on The New Testament in its World.
Now they’re releasing free podcasts. Scroll down this page:
This series is not a survey of NT content. It’s background information for understanding the NT in its setting, and therefore how to approach it today.
Along with Michael Bird (Australia) and N. T. Wright (UK), these podcasts feature top-quality NT lecturers and commentators.
Direct links for the first five podcasts:
- Craig Keener, Beginning NT Study, and a Conversation in Jerusalem
- Lynn Cohick, Canonization, and N. T. Wright’s Reading and Research Habits
- Jeannie K. Brown, The Jewish Context of Jesus, and ‘Faith in Christ’ vs ‘Faithfulness of Christ’
- Nijay Gupta, The Story of Paul’s Life and Ministry, and N. T. Wright’s Favourite NT Book
- Esau McCaulley, The Afterlife in Greco-Roman Thought, and Teaching on the NT
