Richard Gaffin's Lectures on the Theology of Hebrews

Thanks to Clifford Kvidahl for drawing attention to Richard Gaffin's 20 lectures on the Theology of Hebrews. Richard Gaffin is Emeritus Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. The lectures require downloading the iTunes software. The lectures are free and able to be downloaded once you have the software. I will be adding the link to multimedia resources.
