Online Lectures by Richard Hays


I have always enjoyed the scholarship of Richard Hays. In fact, Hays' methodology of reading the scriptures lays the foundation for my doctoral work.

I have compiled some of the lectures delivered by Hays that are available online. Enjoy!


Ethics in Light of the Resurrection - The Willson-Addis Lectures held Feb. 19, 2003 in the Paul W. Powell Chapel at Truett Seminary.

The Art of Reading Scripture Faithfully - delivered at St Peter's Anglican Church, Tallahassee, Florida, on March 26, 2006

Turning the World Upside Down: Israel's Scripture in Luke-Acts - lecture delivered at the MacLaurin Institute, April 12, 2007

Sense and Non-sense in Recent New Testament Scholarship - lecture delivered at the MacLaurin Institute, April 12, 2007.

Beyond the Da Vinci Code - A debate between Bart Ehrman and Richard Hays at Duke Divinity School, April 25, 2006, concerning the questions raised by the book, "The Da Vinci Code" and their implications on the interpretation of New Testament.

The Problem of Interpretation - A lecture held at Seattle Pacific University.

How does scripture inform how we think about politics in a situation very different from that of the NT Christians? Listen to a discussion panel with Richard Hays, Richard Stubbing and Stanley Hauerwas on this topic.

I'm blessed by "Sense and nonsense in NT studies". It's a concise summary of the 'happenings' in the NT studies in our current time.

The one on politics is very engaging. Hauerwas was shouting and shouting. And he is really an insightful person, able to interpret situation from awkward yet critical perspective. And Hays give practical note from the NT on how to elect politician.

Thank you for these files, KY.
