John Meier on Youtube: Jesus the Jew, but what kind of Jew?

I just came across this entire lecture by John Meier, reflecting on his scholarship on the historical Jesus on University of California Television. The upload date is January 2008 but the lecture itself is probably from around 2001. The title is "Jesus the Jew - But What Sort of Jew?":

Update (Tuesday, 6.30am): thanks to Janelle Peters in comments for helping to date this in about 2001, now updated above.

I think this is Prof. Meier's 2001 Burke Lecture at UC San Diego. If so, Meier might be looking at David Noel Freedman while mentioning him.

Yes, 2001 makes sense, since he refers several times to his volume 3 just having been published.
