    Very glad to help! I listened to all the lectures, and then was frustrated when I knew there was so much good stuff in those 35 .mp3s, but I had no idea where. So this indexing project started as my own personal reference, but why not make it public?

  4. Kyle says:

    Wow… Thanks for taking the time to do this! Very helpful!

  7. Thanks for this great resource!

    “‘RubeRad’ over at the Confessional Outhouse has provided an excellent and invaluable resource for anyone who enjoys studying the scripture from a redemptive-historical perspective. . . . But what RubeRad has done is provide a detailed index of the lectures that include topics and times per lecture! . . . Because the index is so long, I have decided to provide it in .pdf format here.”

  8. Rick says:

    Good work Rube. I take back what I said about you. 🙂

  9. RubeRad says:

    Well I’m very glad that more than just myself can benefit from my (re)listening to KP. So who volunteers for the next two courses: OT Exegesis, and Prophets?
