On that Sunday morning, when the group of women approached the tomb where Jesus’ body had been laid, they expected to need help rolling away the stone ... they expected to re-embalm their beloved Lord who’d been dead for three days. What they could never have expected was the angel’s joyful, frightening, reality-changing news: “He has risen; He is not here.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

How do we come to faith? Left to ourselves, we cannot see our need for God – or, if we do, we try to “fix” our own lives. But as we dig deeper into the opening verses of Titus 3, we learn that salvation is not just an alteration or addition: it is a radical transformation that affects us to our core. The only adequate basis for this kind of change is the grace of God and the love of Christ, revealed by the Holy Spirit.

Paul reminds his readers that the relevance of “who Jesus is” is found in the personal application of one’s faith. It is futile to deal with the deep theological aspects of Jesus if we are lacking in love for Him. We are challenged in this message to pinpoint a defining moment in our lives when we have been changed through God’s grace from beyond what we once were.

In Galatians 3:10-4:7, we see that even obeying God's Law perfectly can bring us no closer to Him than being slaves. How then can we gain a better standing with God? Because the Lord Jesus fulfilled the Law on our behalf, in Him we are no longer slaves but sons, adopted into God's own family.

“What now?” That’s a fair question not only for those who are beginning their walk with Christ, but for Christians at any point along the way. As we struggle with sin, endure persecution, and confront suffering, we may wonder how all of these things fit into God’s plan of salvation. We may even wonder how - or if - God is still at work. In this series of sermons from Romans 8 by Alistair Begg, we are reminded that God’s Spirit empowers the Christian life from beginning to end as the persevering love of God holds those who belong to ...

"In all things God works for the good..." These words from Romans 8:28 are quoted for many reasons. Join us in learning from Romans 8:28-30 that they are grounded in God's eternal love for His people, for whom all things - including present sufferings - ultimately work for good.
