Jesus Christ. Some use his name as a curse. Others cherish it as precious. For many, there's "just something about that name." In this message, Alistair Begg explains that the significance of the name Jesus Christ is found in all that it reflects about the Savior's work. He is the prophet who opens blind eyes to the word of God; the priest who reconciles his people to God; and the king who seeks the welfare of his people.

Participating in communion can became part of our Christian routine and little more. That's why believers need a frequent reminder about its significance. When Christians gather for communion, it's not just to commemorate past events. Participating in communion is an acknowledgment of our identity with Christ in all that he has done; an encouragement in our unity with one another; and a reminder that that we are united across time and geography with believers in every generation.

The book of Esther describes King Ahasuerus as an important man. As we study Esther together, however, it is important to remember that all authority on earth is derived from the authority of our sovereign Lord. The power, influence, and authority of King Ahasuerus fades to nothing when we consider Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Mark’s Gospel, the first to be written, emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. With nearly a third of the narrative dedicated to the passion and the resurrection of Jesus, the Gospel of Mark aims to persuade all who read to believe in Jesus. Attributed to John Mark, a contemporary of the disciple Peter, the Gospel is identified as Peter’s first-hand account of life with Jesus. Not a creator, but a conscientious compiler of the information, Mark provides vivid descriptions of the relationship between Jesus and His disciples, Jesus ...

Paul tells us in Ephesians 4 that the ascended Christ gave gifts to establish and build up His church. In this study, we look closely at one of those gifts: the pastor who leads and cares for his flock.

The ascension of our Lord into heaven is just as vital to the core truth of the Gospel as are His sacrificial death and His resurrection. In this study, we learn how Jesus' transition from His earthly ministry to His heavenly ministry impacts the life of the believer today.

Young men and women entering college or taking their first steps out into the world will quickly find their faith put to the test. Contemporary influences encourage us to “live for the moment” and to “seize the day” without regard for eternal consequences. The pressure imposed by society to thrive in a competitive world can breed broken friendships, disappointments, and lure young adults away from their devotion to Christ. Teaching from selected Scripture including Psalms, Proverbs, Timothy and James, Alistair Begg speaks to college student audiences about holding firm to Christian convictions. Lessons For Life offers practical, essential teaching on ...

As we come to the close of Mark, it may seem that his Gospel account ends rather abruptly. But looking back through the book, we see that it is consistent with Mark's typical fast-paced writing style - in fact, it can provoke the reader's curiosity to learn more about our Lord's resurrection.
