C.F.D. Moule Lectures from 1974

In a week in which I consider to be an embarrassment of riches, a few more have come to my attention in the form of four audio lectures from the great C.F.D. Moule.
C.F.D. Moule (1908-2007)
These lectures, delivered at Asbury Seminary as part of their Heritage series, took place in March of 1974 and are entitled: "Whither Christology..." Here are the links to those lectures:

  1. "Whither Christology: the presence of Christ according to the New Testament" by C.F.D. Moule
  2. "Whither Christology: the body and temple of Christ" by C.F.D. Moule
  3. "Whither Christology: Jesus Christ, the fulfillment of scripture" by C.F.D. Moule
  4. "Whither Christology: individual and corporate in New Testament Christo" by C.F.D. Moule
Moule, who spent some twenty-six years as the Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge (1951-1976), was a true giant in British New Testament Scholarship, rivalled only by Dodd, Barrett, and Caird in the 20th century. Despite his profound learning, (it was said he had the entirety of the Greek New Testament memorized!) Moule was known for his great humility, once prompting friend and fellow legendary NT scholar, Joachim Jeremias to remark, "In him could be seen no trace of original sin." One will get a sense in listening to these lectures, both sides of this great man. Enjoy!

Update: I have discovered one more audio lecture of Moule's. This one took place on November 1, 1983 at Seattle Pacific University for a chapel service. The title of the lecture was "Reconciliation: Metaphor and Reality" . You will need to download iTunes for this one. Enjoy!
