NT Pod 21: A Historical Approach to the New Testament

The latest episode of the NT Pod is all about what is involved in a historical approach to the New Testament.

It is just over ten minutes long. Feel free to leave your comments below.

  1. can't access the mp3, not found?!

  2. Hello John,

    Seems there must have been a technical problems. I am subscribed to this podcast with iTunes, and received the file. In fact... twice... After Receiving #22, i once again #received #21.

    If you look at the RSS;

    You will notice that links to all the .mp3 no longer work. My guess is that either the server that the mp3s are on is down or moved, or someone accidently made a change to the CMS that makes the RSS feed. But yes, i can confirm as a 2nd that that there is some issue with the feed. My guess is that it has something to do with some promotional/marketing changes. Ie, i now get Marks's podcast downloaded in my iTunes "iTunes University".

    You might try subscribing to this RSS;


    PS - Love your podcast. Keep up the good work. How about a review of Robert Eisenman's _James the Brother of Jesus_

  3. Yes, I am afraid that the site that hosts the files,, is down. I am not sure why this is. I am hoping it will be back soon.

  4. It's back! Thanks for letting me know.

    Ricco: thanks for the encouragement. I'll certainly do something on the character of James, brother of Jesus at some point, though not specifically on Eisenman's book.

  5. Why isn't the notion that a "historical" reading is "generally accessible" to people outside the community that has historically received the text itself a kind of presupposition that the "critical" reader brings to the text?
