SBL International Meeting 08

Well, I've just booked our plane tickets to Auckland, New Zealand and we're so excited! This will afford me the opportunity to attend the SBL International Meeting, hosted by Auckland university this year! We'll be in NZ for a month, where I'll be able to try out my new ROME ANTHEM (For those who don't know what that is, it has nothing to do with ancient history, but rather soft powder and killer airs... It's the otherside of my life, besides books! {and my wife, if she is reading this...}).
Is anyone else from the blogosphere going to SBL in Auckland this July? I'd be happy to connect and show you around, and even show you where a couple of really good bookshops are!
Otherwise, see you there! And sorry for those who will be missing out...
Eddie and I plan to have as much fun as possible! I'm really hoping for a great line up!

Bauckham Lecture Online

Richard Bauckham delivered the annual Drumwright lectures at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The lectures in total are three with the theme being "Eyewitnesses in The Gospel of Mark" : March 6, "Eyewitnesses: Simon Peter" (10:50 AM) March 6, " Eyewitnesses: Bartimaeus" (7:00 PM)March 7, "Eyewitnesses: The Three Women" ( 11:00 AM).

Furthermore, the first of the three lectures has been posted online. Bauckham has changed the order of the lectures leading off with the Bartimaeus lecture first. The video can be accessed here. The audio can be found here. I do hope the remainder of the lectures will be made available as well.
