D.A. Carson’s Four Lectures on Hebrews Now Available
newsroomadminNovember 18, 2013
The second installment of The TEDS Lectures, which features Dr. D.A. Carson on the letter to the Hebrews in four lectures, is now available in its entirety.
Dr. Carson, who is Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and who is also widely known as the founder & president of The Gospel Coalition, gave these lectures in spring 2013 as part of his Acts, Pauline, & General Epistles canon course.
Dr. Carson’s lectures cover a wide variety of topics in the epistle to the Hebrews, including introductory matters such as authorship and date of writing, as well as more advanced topics in Christology, perseverance, and the New Testament use of the Old Testament. Hebrews’ High Priestly Christology is one of its unique contributions to New Testament theology, and its famous “warning passages” and mapping of Yom Kippur imagery onto Jesus’ death and resurrection have prompted much writing over the course of church history. Dr. Carson has co-authored (with G.K. Beale) a commentary on the New Testament use of the Old Testament, and Hebrews presents a number of interpretive challenges in this area. Dr. Carson emphasizes, however, that most central to this letter is the superiority and centrality of Jesus Christ.
The lectures are free to watch, and transcripts of all four lectures are also available. It is hoped that these lectures–as well as others currently available–can provide additional Christ-centered and biblically responsible resources to the global community of faith.
