Samuel Escobar gives a great perspective on the background and ethos of a Latin American Theology. Being that Latin America is one of the fastest growing Christian populations as well as economies. It would behove us all to know a little bit more about the spiritual and theological framework of Latin America.

With all this talk about Jesus having a wife this week. Why not bring up the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls has revolutionized our picture of the early history of Judaism and of the Jewish background of early Christianity. With the completion of the publication of the entire scrolls collection, it is now possible to draw significant conclusions from this treasure trove of ancient documents. This illustrated lecture by Professor Lawrence Schiffman will discuss the discovery of the scrolls, the archaeology of Qumran where the scrolls were unearthed, the nature of the library, and its significance for the study of Judaism, Christianity and their common destiny.

Amy-Jill Levine is one of the foremost sought after scholars of New Testament. One aspect that is unique to Dr. Levine is that she is Jewish and a New Testament and Jesus Scholar. She laces this talk with a lot of biblical period context as well as mix of the Jewish and Christian theologies. As well she tosses in a number of jokes.
Definitely recommend her book: The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus
Amy-Jill Levine is Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School. A self-described “Yankee Jewish feminist teaching in a Protestant seminary,” Levine examines modern Jewish religious and cultural issues with historical rigor, critical sensitivity and a frequent dash of humor in this address at UCSD.

Geoffrey Wainwright is a respected Wesleyan theologian and educator. This is his retirement lecture from Duke Divinity School. Many of the academic talks like to give an introduction. This one is especially long as they read off letters and give accolades to before his retirement lecture. Skip to 18:40 to get to beginning of his talk. Might just be his English accent, but I find Professor Wainwright to be quite entertaining in lecture.
Geoffrey Wainwright, the Robert Earl Cushman Professor of Christian Theology, presented his retirement lecture after teaching at Duke Divinity School since 1983. The public lecture, “Divine Disproportion & Poetic Paradoxes: Charles Wesley at Chalcedon: the Retirement Lecture of Professor Geoffrey Wainwright,” was held in Goodson Chapel.
During his fourth year of Irish seminary, Thomas Groome was assigned to teach religion class to high school sophomores. By the end of the second week, he knew he was “failing miserably.” So he asked his students what they were interested in learning. “The secret was to bring life to faith, and faith to life,” he says.
Groome continues to implement this approach in his contemporary work. A professor of theology and religious education at Boston College, his primary areas of interest and research are the history, theory, and practice of religious education. Educating for Life: A Spiritual Vision for Every Teacher and Parent, published in 2001, mirrors his teaching style—full of stories, examples, and good questions. His most recent books include Reclaiming Catholicism: Treasures Old and New (editor) (2010), and What Makes Us Catholic: Eight Gifts for Life (2003).
In the video, Groome examines the intersection between religious education and practical theology.
