Lecture: “Divine and Human Community in the Gospel of John” from Richard Bauckham

Richard Hays - May 23, 2015

Did Moses Write about Jesus? The Challenges of Figural Reading

In his lecture, Richard Hays illustrates and explores the surprising ways in which the four Gospel writers interpreted Israel’s Scripture as a witness to the identity of Jesus. He first summarizes and then extends the hermeneutical proposals explored in his recent book Reading Backwards: Figural Christology and the Fourfold Gospel Witness. What might it mean for readers in late modernity to take seriously the interpretative methods employed by the Gospel authors? Are Christian claims about Jesus bound inextricably to these interpretative methods?
