Dr. Bruce Ware on the Trinity

Last Wednesday, Dr. Bruce A. Ware, professor of Christian Theology here at Southern Seminary, gave a faculty address called "Equal in Essence, Distinct in Roles: Eternal Functional Authority and Submission among the Essentially Equal Divine Persons of the Godhead" (sounds Puritan to me!). I wanted to post this last week but the audio was not yet available. You can listen to his lecture by clicking on the title, and you can also peruse previous faculty addresses by going here. Also, let me heartily recommend to you Dr. Ware's excellent book called Father, Son & Holy Spirit: Relationships, Roles and Relevance. Here is the table of contents to give you a taste of what it is about: Chapter One: Beholding the Wonder of Our Triune God: Importance of This Doctrine Chapter Two: Beholding the Wonder of Our Triune God: Historical Overview Chapter Three: Beholding the Wonder of the Father Chapter Four: Beholding the Wonder of the Son Chapter Five: Beholding the Wonder of the Holy Spirit Chapter Six: Beholding the Wonder of the Triune Persons in Relational Community Finally, if you want to listen to more of Dr. Ware on the topic of the Trinity, be sure to check out "This Is My Beloved Son!" Exulting in the Trinitarian Relationships of Jesus Christ - 2005 Bethlehem Conference for Pastors in which Dr. Ware gave three lectures on the Trinity: 1. "The Trinity of Persons: Unity and Distinction, Equality and Differentiation" 2. "Jesus and the Father: Love and Obedience, Authority and Submission" 3. "Jesus and the Spirit: Trust and Reliance, Exaltation and Glorification" The audio for these messages can be purchased here. Note: Sorry for no pics. Plain text until I get my computer back. :)

Thanks for the link. Also, I enjoyed Piper's advice on listening before you speak...it is timelessly timely.
