Video Resource: Richard B. Hays “Figural Reading” Discussion with Capes, Newman, and Cohick June 2015 (Gupta)

Excellent video!

Richard Hays was recently at Lanier Theological Library giving some lectures on his new book Reading Backwards. So far, one of the sessions has been uploaded to Youtube, a discussion that Hays has about figural reading in the Gospels. Hays is joined by Lynn Cohick, David Capes, and Carey Newman.

For those that have read the book, there is not a lot of “new” stuff here, but I did catch that Hays does identify his understanding of “figural reading” with typology, though he thinks typology has carried some baggage in theological discussions that he doesn’t like.
