The Advent season season encourages us not only to reflect on Christ's coming, but to look forward to his return. In this study of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem before the Passover, we learn to anticipate his triumphant return as king and judge.


A Wake-Up Call!

At the end of Mark 13, Jesus tells His disciples that no one knows when His return will be - even He does not know! What then is the purpose of prophecy in the Bible? Knowing that our Lord will certainly return, but not knowing when, motivates us to obey His command, "Stay awake."

Be On Guard!

When we consider prophetic passages like Mark 13, it helps to look at large principles instead of zooming in on details. We cannot fully understand God's providence in our daily lives: how much less can we understand His cosmic purposes?

Signs of the End

Most of the time, when the topic is "the end of the world," you hear a lot of speculation about dates and events and meanings. Mark 13 shows us a stiking difference in the way Jesus approached this subject.

A Question For Jesus

As they leave the Temple in Mark 13, the disciples are impressed by its grandeur. Jesus uses this opportunity and challenges them not to get sidetracked with structures of religion - no matter how grand, they will end someday. The focus of our worship is eternal: Jesus Himself.

Mark 13 - An Introduction

God's word is infallible, but no individual is an infallible interpreter of the Bible. When scholars and theologians don't agree on what a Biblical text means, how are we to understand it?

About Times and Dates, Part One

Confusion about the second coming of Christ provides an opportunity for Christians to be reminded about what the Bible teaches. In 1 Thessalonians 4, Paul wrote to encourage the church with the certain hope that Jesus will return, and that those who are in Christ will be with him forever.

Belief And Behavior, Volume 2

The Thessalonian church held a tender place in the heart of the Apostle Paul. In this expositional study of Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, we see a paradigm for pastoral ministry, emphasizing the life-changing content of the gospel and concerns of Paul’s heart for their healthy spiritual growth.

Having established the believers in good Biblical theology, Paul clearly addresses issues of practical Christian behavior -- sexual morality, work, honest living. The doctrinal foundations of the believers’ hope, namely, the resurrection and return of Christ are established. And finally, the principles of healthy corporate life and worship within the local church ...
