My only regret of this class is I could not have been in the lecture hall and got to meet Dr Martin personally. Incredibly insightful into the development of Christianity and further proved to me, the more I think I know the more I realize I do not know much. Thank you for opening so many new...Read full review »

Nearly at the end of this course I think it is my favorite, my only regret is I didn't do the readings. Engaging teaching style, wide ranging, very funny. I found the asides as interesting and informative as the main topics.

A class very well structured, touching on profound subjects such as what is historical criticism and how it differs from theological exegesis. A lively and eloquent professor who likes to provoke. Looking forward to other courses with Prof Martin!

Very insightful lectures on the historical study of the New Testament. Will clear up a lot of confusion that one confronts when trying to understand the authors motives in the Christian texts. Recommend it after you take Yale's Old Testament Open Course.

This course was extremely interesting and informative. Professor Martin is an extremely engaging and entertaining lecturer--I could listen to him read the Bible all day!

I seldom write comment simply because I'm lazy. But this time I'd like to say the lecture Prof. Martin delivered is awesome. I come from China and New Testament is sort of new world to me. He provides a clear, enlightening, inspiring lecture which make me easily understand the historical...Read full review »

But then, I suppose that's what introductory courses are meant to be. The lecturer's flippancy towards the subject is off-putting, however. I am no fundamentalist, but a modicum of respect might be expected when dealing with such matters. But it is not to be. He seems much more interested in...Read full review »

There is, in modern scholarship since the 1700's, the tendency to "doubt everything" except your own arrogance. As a man who believes that the Bible was inspired as well as preserved through the generations by the will and providence of God, I have no sense of shock left for those who say,...Read full review »

Dr Martin's lecture of the New Testament is by far the most informative, unbiased view of early Christianity. He teaches you how to actually study the New Testament (Bible) for what "it" says, not for what others say it says. I believe this lecture will be available in print, as well, early next...Read full review »

I am enjoying and benefitting from this well-presented and well-produced class.

I doubt Dale Martin and I would agree about too much when it comes to politics and culture. The fact this this course is nevertheless unassailably awesome is a testament to his genius as a teacher and a scholar.

This series is simply addicting. Prof. Martin is a gifted educator who challenges his students to view the text outside of a faith context. He is a true academic who addresses issues of faith very respectfully and leaves all bias out of the classroom. As a Christian, I came away understanding...Read full review »

Over the course of 3 months I watched all 26 sessions of this course. It was well done and I recommend it. That said, I also recommend reading "An Introduction to the New Testament" by Carson & Moo because it offers detailed scholarly assessments of the pseudonymity arguments that are found in...Read full review »

This is hands down the best thing that has ever possessed my iPod! I chain-played the audio version, and now I'm going to go through the video version. Dr. Martin takes you through the New Testament and early "Christianities" with an abundance of energy and knowledge. He makes you come at the...Read full review »

Though I have fallen away, I spent some time in a fundamentalist Christian church in my teenage years. The thing I loved about it, compared to the more liberal churches I had been raised in, was the honest spirit of inquiry I saw in the Bible study classes. People really wanted to argue about...Read full review »

This is the first time I have ever written a review, and it is only because this is hands down the most interesting college lecture I have ever heard. Not even courses from my undergrad or masters level courses compare to this lecture. I have learned so much that I truly never knew or picked up...Read full review »

Dale Martin This was an enjoyable set of lectures to listen to. I do not agree with all the conclusions Dale Martin reaches but he is respectful of people's religious views without being condescending.

Very enjoyable presentation, from an historical perspective. I would love to be educated more by this man, very practical and most importantly memorable study. Thank you professor Martin
