Peter Denies Jesus

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.

Woe to That Man

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.

Divorce, Part Two

When the Pharisees challenged Jesus on the topic of divorce, in Mark 10, He did the same thing we should do when facing difficult issues: Return to First Principles - in this case, that marriage is a Creation ordinance, instituted by God as a pattern for all humanity.

Divorce, Part One

Because marriage is part of God's purposes from creation, the Bible's instruction about marriage and divorce speaks to all marriages everywhere. Jesus' instruction in Mark 10 is unequivocal, and we cannot disregard it. But believers must apply it within the framework of gospel truth.

Be Careful How You Hear

King Herod had the opportunity to repent when he heard God's Word. He chose to disregard the teaching he heard, though, and was trapped by his carelessness in distressing decisions. Are we falling into a similar trap today?

Some Strange Ideas

It could be the plot for a movie: An oppressed nation is looking for a liberator, but there’s a plan in the works to kill him before he can act. An innocent man dies willingly for guilty men. People are coming back to life from the dead and a body disappears. Centuries' worth of prophesies are about to be fulfilled, but not in the way anyone expected…and conspiracies and political intrigue surround it all.

By any measure, the final days of Christ’s life and the weeks and months immediately following his resurrection are filled with strange and perplexing events, themes, ...

A Prophet Without Honor

In Mark 6, there are 3 responses of unbelief to Jesus’ teaching from people who knew him well. We should not be surprised, then, when we encounter unbelief to the Gospel today. This example from Christ’s life shows us that the Gospel has always advanced in a context of unbelief.

About 12 Almost Christians

Not everyone who professes to be a Christian is truly a follower of Jesus Christ, regardless of the Christian language they use or the Christian activities in which they participate. These “almost Christians” always try their best, struggling to do for themselves what God, in His grace, has already accomplished. In this study of Acts 19:1-10, Alistair Begg discusses the identifying marks of genuine conversion and the evidence of the Spirit’s work in the Christian experience.

Amazing Love

Chapter 15 is at the very heart of Luke’s gospel. Luke tells us that the tax collectors and so-called sinners had gathered round to hear Jesus, but that those known as religious men, the Pharisees and teachers of the law, were not paying much attention. Jesus ends Chapter 14 with this instruction; "He who has ears, let him hear." Clearly most of us have ears, so He is really encouraging all those who are listening to pay very close attention to what He is saying. It is striking, therefore, that those who were listening intently were the kind of people ...
