SEBTS Page Lecture - Orlando E. Costas October 6, 1982

  • Orlando E. Costas was the Thornley B. Wood Professor of Missiology at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary, now Palmer Theological Seminary. The service begins with a word of prayer (00:00-00:53). Orlando E. Costas is introduced as the Page Lecturer (00:54-02:19). Costas begins his lecture by speaking about the importance of Galilee as the land on the periphery of Jewish as a liberation metaphor for Christ’s mission to save the poor and outcast of society (02:20-10:57). His first point is that Jesus’ mission in Galilee shows the reader that gospel missions should have its base in the periphery of society because it can challenge the central powers (10:58-17:14). Costas second point is that missions is a personal and public message for all human beings, and he says that when the multitudes are evangelized, creation hears about it (17:15-28:49). Costas third point is that missions has a global scope, and the country song “In an Old Shanty Town” is played (28:50-42:25). A time of Q&A is opened for the audience, and the first question is about the interpretation of the Bible for the current context (42:26-46:59). The service ends with an announcement and a word of prayer (47:00-47:53).
