In 1987 Robert Lindsey conducted an interview in which he discussed many aspects of his life and ministry. In the following clips Dr. Lindsey discusses the usefulness of knowing Hebrew for a proper understanding of Jesus’ message.
On 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.
This eight and a half-minute video clip provides a wonderful opportunity to see and hear Robert Lindsey and David Flusser. View them in the 1970s as they collaborate on Synoptic Gospels research at one of Flusser’s seminars at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, or as they climb down into Wadi Kelt in the Judean Desert east of Jerusalem.
