What purpose does a "memorial" serve, in God's eyes? In this study of Joshua 3 and 4, we see the Israelites take 12 stones from the Jordan to create a memorial. Its meaning: God is faithful.

Alistair Begg on Mark 15:33-41 -- In the 15th chapter of his gospel account, Mark describes the crucifixion. The particular details he provides, far from being random facts and observations, lead instead to a deeper understanding of what Christ accomplished on the cross - bearing sin and enduring God's judgment to redeem His own.

Faced with a shouting mob on the one hand, and a silent Galilean carpenter on the other, Pilate tried at first to take a neutral position. But for him - as for us today - there is no middle ground when answering the question, "What shall I do with Jesus?"...

How could Jesus be silent when he faced Pilate? The accusations against him were false - why did he not defend Himself? Our study of the first 5 verses of Mark 15 shows the redemptive purpose behind our Lord's actions: He chose to suffer in our place...

Three times he was asked, and three times Peter denied that he knew Jesus - then a rooster crowed, and Peter was faced with his own failure. In our study of the final portion of Mark 14, we consider how this experience shaped the apostle's character, and how God uses brokenness in our lives to enable us to serve others for His sake.

At the climax of Jesus' trial, he answered the high priest's charge directly and unequivocally. He is the Christ, and his declaration challenged their preconceptions. The weak, abused, and betrayed man who appeared to be at their mercy was the Messiah - the Son of Man who would appear in glory.

At His trial by the religious leaders in Mark 14, Jesus appeared to be a helpless victim and His ministry seemed to be over. But appearances can be deceiving: Even as He went through weakness and tragedy, He was fulfilling prophecy and bringing His redemption plan to completion.

God is the author and king of creation. In Genesis, God declared that what He made was good. When Satan deceived Adam and Eve, God's perfect kingdom was immediately spoiled by sin and rebellion. This act of disobedience led to struggle in the world and the need for all men and women to be transformed by Christ before entering the kingdom of God.

Because the story of Judas' betrayal is familiar, it helps to look at it with fresh eyes, seeking God's purpose behind the passage. There, we are impressed with Jesus' boldness as He met His enemies and His obedience as He pursued the Father's Gospel plan...

Jesus' prayer that the cup of God's wrath would be removed from him was a real request prompted by the horror of what was to come. But we can't come to grips with this prayer - or with Jesus' submission to the will of the Father - if we only think of it as his reaction to physical suffering. The agony that he faced was the reality that he would soon identify with sinners by drinking the cup of God's wrath against sin.

What are we to understand from the great sorrow that Jesus experienced in the garden of Gethsemane? Did He really mean it, when He prayed for the "cup" to be removed from Him? In this first study of "Jesus in 3-D," we discover that the answer lies in His dual nature: in His perfect humanity, he recoils from suffering, yet chooses to obey the Father's will.

When you hear the phrase "the Kingdom of God," you likely think of Jesus' teachings during His earthly ministry. In our final study in Isaiah 9, we learn that this Kingdom was prophesied long before our Savior's birth at Bethlehem. And unlike earthly kingdoms, His government and authority will never end.

The familiar terms in Isaiah 6 (Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace) are not just titles of the incarnate Christ -- they are roles He fills in the life of the believer. In this final Advent study, we discover the actions Jesus performs in each role and the very real difference they make in our daily experience...

At Christmas, we don't celebrate the birth of any ordinary child, but a child who was born to save and to rule: Mediator, beloved Son, Redeemer, Creator, and King. This study in Isaiah 9 draws us again to look from the manger to the cross to the throne, where our living Savior reigns in power...

By Alistair Begg, Dec 2, 2012 - http://www.truthforlife.org

With the holidays approaching, "getting ready for Christmas" becomes a focus in our lives and homes. Yet preparing our hearts to celebrate Christ's coming is even more important. The Advent season addresses this need by pointing out that all of the Bible is history - and HIS story. In this first Advent message, we study how Jesus fulfilled not just specific predictions, but all of the Old Testament, during His earthly ministry.

In Ephesians 5, the apostle Paul gives a familiar command: "Give thanks." Yet this attitude doesn't exist in a vacuum - our thankfulness to God is set in the broader context of godly character and actions. In this study, we examine this context and how believers' lives give evidence of our salvation...

After celebrating the Passover with his disciples, Jesus warned them that they would all fall away. In doing so, he identified a danger that we face too. When we rely on ourselves and trust our own hearts, we are in a precarious position. But as Jesus' words also remind us, failure with God is never final...

When the apostle Paul presented God's truth to the people of Athens, he did not hold back from topics that may be uncomfortable - for example, the coming Day of God's Judgement. The fact that our Creator and Father is also the righteous Judge gives meaning to our moral choices and to suffering, and challenges us to prepare to meet the Day in our own hearts and lives.

The Lord Jesus knew what lay ahead for Judas, yet He treated his betrayer as a friend even at the Last Supper. In Mark 14:17-21, we explore the mystery that exists between the two truths of God's sovereignty and human responsibility for evil choices.
