SEBTS Carver-Barnes Lecture - Theron D. Price April 12, 1961

  • The service begins in prayer (00:00-00:48), and President Stealey gives an introduction for Dr. Theron D. Price, the pastor of Wornall Road Baptist Church in Kansas City, MO (00:49-01:58). He begins with formalities toward President Stealey and an introduction into his message (01:59-07:24). His first focus in on God as Lord and as inexpressible by human language and thought (07:25-08:49), highlighting “the Word” (logos) as the best expression of God’s infinite being, action, and knowledge (08:50-18:58). He explains the threefold description of the Word as revealed (Jesus Christ), written (Holy Scripture), and preached (Church’s proclamation) (18:59-46:21). With his time remaining, he deals with humans as interpreters of the Bible, not only in its strangeness but also in a pastoral sense, with the increasing Christian unfamiliarity with the Bible (46:22-53:32). He ends his time in prayer (53:33-54:58), and organ music ends the service (54:59-56:49).
