    I listen to your podcasts with regularity and am coming to the view that taking a course might be fun. Looking at your website, it is not clear (I could not discouver) the cost or the mechanics. Never having taken an on-line course, I guess that is my first question.

    I am not interested in a degree….I have several and am retiring. I am just interested in learning on a set of topics that you seem to excell in

    Hello Warren. Thanks for your interest, but these are not online courses. Instead, I am a prof at York University and I simply record my lectures and then make them into podcast episodes. However, if you wanted to, you could read along by looking at the syllabus and discussion notes for the course in question which you can find by clicking “courses” on my website.

    I have been looking for a new podcast in October 2013, as there have been new ones each month during the academic year. Will there be more? Hope all is well.

    Hello Alice. Thanks for reminding me! I had totally forgotten to release it. It is there now, and there is a new series on the “History of Satan” coming up next.

    The conflicts during Paul’s time was over circumcision and foods with the James group. I wonder why the Jewish Sabbath was not an issue for Greeks?

  6. Marc Wm. Vallen

    I found your podcast series several years ago, through comments on Dr. Robert M. Price’s website. I greatly enjoyed all of your lectures. Some of your new courses intrigue me a great deal. Will you be posting the lectures for those? Here’s hoping! Wishing you all the best.

    Hello Marc. I think you’ll find that most of what I teach now was already covered by the podcast. So I’m not currently adding more, but there may be something new in the future. Thanks for listening to the podcast!
