The service begins with the recitation of “Ring out the Old, Ring in the New” (00:00-00:46) and prayer (00:47-04:09). There was no introduction for the speaker, Dr. B. Elmo Scoggin, but he was Professor of Old Testament at SEBTS. For his message, he begins to read from Psalm 136:1-26 with the congregation. The entire chapel service is simply the reading of this text of Scripture in this manner (04:10-08:30). He ends his time with prayer (08:31-09:04).
B. Elmo Scoggin was Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament for thirty-four years. Dr. Scoggin shares with the students that our gospel must be based on our experience and be convicted and convinced of the gospel claims. He encourages them to share the wonderful story of God's redemptive work in Christ. Dr. Scoggin preaches from 0:00-11:07. Closing music is played from 11:14-11:57.
