Many people assume the Gospel is a New Testament phenomenon. But on Truth For Life, Alistair Begg illustrates how the life-transforming Gospel of Christ can be found on every page of Scripture! Hear what the Old Testament says Concerning This Salvation!
First Peter is a handbook for Christian Living. All of the foundations necessary for building lives of spiritual maturity are contained in these chapters. Peter’s readers were geographically scattered and in the face of all kinds of challenges, they needed to be theologically grounded.

Imprisoned in Rome, anticipating the end of his earthly life, and deserted by Demas, it’s not difficult to imagine Paul’s loneliness and his longing to see a cherished and trusted friend face to face.
