Some of the stories Jesus told are quite clear. Others require much more study and context. We’ll ponder a puzzling New Testament account about a withering fig tree. Join us as we study more Stories of the Kingdom on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!

Stories of the Kingdom

The stories Jesus told described a King and a Kingdom unlike any other. Jesus’ words challenged His hearers to consider the magnitude of their sin and the depth of mercy that they could never deserve. Like those in Jesus’ day, we too are prone to misunderstand how these stories testify to the realities of Christ’s Kingdom. In a culture that is reluctant to embrace absolute truth, it can be convenient to marginalize who Jesus is and why He came to earth. Like the rich young ruler, we may consider ourselves to be moral people with no need for a Savior. We may never have been struck by the weight and gravity of God’s coming judgment, driving us to consider our need for mercy. In this series of messages from the Gospel of Mark, Alistair Begg shows us the necessity of knowing Christ as a gracious Savior, an eternal King, and the One who will ultimately judge the world in righteousness.
