SEBTS Chapel - Robert Cook Briggs November 29, 1961

  • The service begins with the reading of a poem (00:00-00:40) and prayer (00:41-04:45). 2 Corinthians 5:11-17 is read and discussed briefly (04:46-07:00). There is a brief time of singing and worship (07:01-11:19). There is no introduction for the speaker, Dr. Robert Cook Briggs, but he was Professor of New Testament Interpretation at SEBTS. The notion of a personal testimony in conjunction with 2 Corinthians 5:17 is discussed (11:20-15:34). The “newness” of the Christian situation is Paul’s emphasis, and it can evoke different kinds of responses (15:35-18:00). In Paul’s new life, anxiety, worry, and distress all played a crucial role by causing him to cast himself onto Christ and other Christians (18:01-26:37). He ends his time with prayer (26:38-27:00).
