Christmas In April–the Importance of the Incarnation

Dr. Wellum, professor of Christian Theology at SBTS, delivered the chapel sermon today at Alumni Chapel. Preaching from Hebrews 2:5-18, Dr. Wellum celebrated with us “Christmas in April.”

Sermon: Hebrews 2:5-18

Dr. Wellum helped us to see how the writer of the letter to the Hebrews answered the question, “Why God became man?” There are four reasons that the writer gives us all built upon the quotation of Psalm 8. First, Christ became man so that He undo the work of Adam. Second, He became man in order to bring sons to glory. Third, Christ had to become man to destroy the devil through His death. Finally, Christ had to become man so that He could become our faithful high priest by which He could atone (and be the substitute) for our sins.

This sermon is a must hear for any Christian. Dr. Wellum will challenge some preconceived notions about passages of Scriptures and show how it all points to perhaps the greatest and most mysterious doctrine in all of Christianity–the Incarnation. Please do not pass up the opportunity to listen to this excellent treatment of Hebrews 2:5-18.

One Response to Christmas In April–the Importance of the Incarnation

  1. I especially appreciated Dr. Wellum’s teaching on how the author of Hebrews properly utilized Psalm 8 and how this Psalm should be understood in its redemptive-historical context.
