Coming Home; New Heaven & New Earth: The Gospel Coalition 2015 National Conference

This years TGC National Conference “Coming Home” is now available online. The usual suspects gathered in Orlando in April to talk about Heaven. Don Carson, Tim Keller, John Piper, Phil Ryken, Ligon Duncan, Mark Dever, Voddie Baucham, and a new face, a pastor from Brazil, Augustus Nicodemus Lopes, gave the plenary addresses.

From the website:

The conference titled Coming Home: New Heaven and New Earth sought to stir longing for our ultimate home in heaven as we explored the sweep of redemption from creation to consummation, from Genesis to Revelation. Through times of worship, prayer, fellowship and instruction, we sought to reaffirm the Bible’s teaching on eschatology and declare in word and song with joyful hope that Jesus is returning soon. Along with the nine main plenary sessions we had more than 50 workshops and focus gatherings led by speakers addressing topics including evangelism, homosexuality, student ministry, sexual abuse, faith and work, and more.

Don’t miss Al Mohler’s workshop address “Aftermath”, or G. K. Beale & Ligon Duncan’s workshop “The Gospel and Eschatology.”

Understanding Complementarianism With Yarborough & Carson

Don Carson and Bob Yarborough were the guest speakers at the 2012 EFCA Theology Conference, and they tackled the very incendiary subject of gender.

Matt Smethurst writes on The Gospel Coalition website:

Our Lord and his inspired apostles were culturally situated, yes, but they weren’t culturally bound. Many assume that cultural rootedness automatically amounts to cultural relativity; the two, however, are simply not the same.

Followers of King Jesus must remain finally tethered “not to a political conviction or to social habit or to hermeneutical whimsy, but to divine mandate.” And for those who embrace the King’s word as their supreme authority, the divine mandate is clear. In these talks, Carson and Yarbrough have offered careful reflection on a contentious and critical issue.

The TGC site links are not working as of October 2014.  Perhaps they will be corrected at some point.

The Gospel Coalition 2011 Plenary Sessions on Video

The plenary sessions of TGC 2011 are now available on video. I am still working my way through the TGC 2011 conference audio and will post about it when finished, however, I would like to say that so far the sessions I’ve listened to are stellar.

The subject itself is one that has been in desperate need of attention, and that is, how we are to preach the Gospel in the Old Testament. Carson’s look at Psalm 110 is a must listen to. That message alone sums up the importance of this conference. In it, Carson expresses how important many Old Testament threads are for our understanding of God and his plan of redemption — threads such as priesthood, atonement, sacrifice, Yom Kippur, Passover, year of Jubilee, kingship, covenant, and the like.

We so quickly dismiss these things, or we deal with them as a matter of caricature that we don’t fully apprehend the breadth of revelation and significance behind them. Carson exposes this reality by pointing to how we commonly divide the law into 3 parts: the ceremonial, the civil, and the moral, and how we dispense with the ceremonial and civil and embrace the moral. And in Carson’s look at Psalm 110 he demonstrates how supremely important Melichizedek is in understanding Jesus Christ.
