SEBTS Chapel - Robert Cook Briggs April 11, 1962

  • The service begins with an opening word and prayer (00:00-04:11). There is no introduction for the speaker, Robert Cook Briggs, but he was Professor of New Testament Interpretation at SEBTS. He begins by reading Romans 12:1-2 (04:12-05:36). He bypasses “what one ought to do” and focuses on “how one is to interpret the meaning of student days” (05:37-07:00). He summarizes the sermon in three points: first, years spent in seminary are best seen as years of opportunity (07:01-14:44); second, this opportunity is related to both what one has been before seminary and also what one will be after seminary (14:45-18:06); and third, essentially, this opportunity must ultimately be seen as a gift from God (18:07-19:58). He ends in prayer (19:59-20:50).
