Report on Richard Hays's Lectures

On rabbisaul, Tim Gallant has posted a thorough and most interesting report on two sessions at the Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City given by Prof. Richard Hays of Duke Divinity School. Go to Richard Hays Lectures for the account. Tim mentions the interesting tidbit that "These lectures are an early form of Hays's next book - apparently a Gospels version of his Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul". Sounds fascinating -- wish I'd been there!

We had the privilege of Having Hays deliver these lectures in Auckland, New Zealand, last year. The one question that I have is this: how does one know that the "echoe" is in the mind of the author, and not the reader? Does it matter? How do we tell? Or is is just a guess? sean D.

Hays delivered similar lectures(The Burn Lectures) at the University of Otago, New Zealand in 2004. The complete series of 6 lectures can be viewed at the website of the Dept of Theology,
