Dr. Stealey introduces Dr. Eduard Schweizer, a professor of New Testament from the University of Zurich, who then proceeds to lecture on “The Disciples of Jesus in the Post-Easter Church”. Using the parable of the Prodigal Son, found in Luke 15:11-32, as a jumping off point, Dr. Schweizer focuses on what Jesus would want for the church now.
Fisher Humphries was Professor of Theology at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. In this message, Humphries speaks on the subject of sanctification and spiritual formation, drawing from 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24. He focuses especially on the role of the church in this process, and a significant portion of his time explores the current state of the Southern Baptist Convention and its relation to Liberal Protestantism, Fundamentalism, and Evangelicalism.
