Peter Flint: The Adventure of the Dead Sea Scrolls
“The Adventure of the Dead Sea Scrolls—Exploring the Greatest Discovery of the Twentieth Century” is a exciting lecture given by Dr. Peter Flint at the BYU David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, Oct 11, 2006.
Dr. Flint is professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity Western University, in British Columbia, Canada and co-author of “The Meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls: Their Significance For Understanding the Bible, Judaism, Jesus, and Christianity.”
“The Dead Sea Scrolls are the greatest archeological find of the 20th Century.”
“..I have just shared with you dynamite. I’ve just shared with you what a Rudolf Bultmann and a generation of New Testament scholars said could not happen in a 1st Century BC Jewish text…”
This is one of my favorite lectures and Dr. Flint is a great passionate speaker. If you are interested in early Christianity, in Judaism, in the Gospels, in Isaiah, and in textual criticism, you will enjoy this.
Update 9/26/2010: Dr. Flint’s lecture is available in video and mp3 format from the BYU Kennedy Center archive.
