n May 11, 1970 in Richmond, Virginia, Ms. Johnni Johnson of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention conducted an interview with Dr. Lindsey shortly after the publication of his groundbreaking work, A Hebrew Translation of the Gospel of Mark. In the interview entitled “R. L. Lindsey’s Source Theory of the Gospels,” Dr. Lindsey reveals many of the insights he had gained into the origins of the Synoptic Gospels from translating Mark’s Gospel from the original Greek to Modern Hebrew.

The recording, which had been unknown to Jerusalem Perspective and the members of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research until now, was carefully preserved by the Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives. Other items of interest preserved in the Southern Baptist archive include a video recording entitled “The Source” in which Dr. Lindsey appears and a 1987 video interview of Dr. Lindsey in which he briefly discusses his solution to the Synoptic Problem.

  1. This is such a wonderful interview giving so much of Lindsey’s thought and work on the synoptic problem; but, it is also so much more, as you can hear in his voice the love of Jesus and his commitment to understanding the scriptures and helping others to understand. Dr. Lindsey was not only a great scholar but a great pastor. I was very privileged to have Dr. Lindsey as my pastor and teacher and I will always be grateful for the time I got to spend with him and all that he taught me. There are not many men of his caliber in this world.
