Throughout Israel’s history, God’s people looked for a promised king—one who would bring in an eternal kingdom and reign with justice. On Palm Sunday the Jerusalem crowds expected triumph, but King Jesus came as a suffering servant, not a conqueror. Alistair Begg observes that the Lord Jesus is a different kind of King ruling over a different kind of kingdom, a kingdom that exists in our hearts. Discover how to become a citizen of this kingdom.
Who is Jesus? Can ordinary people understand His identity, or do you need a seminary education? In Jesus 101, Alistair Begg emphasizes that the search for the real Jesus must always lead us to the Scriptures. Only in the Bible do we meet the Man Who is God, the living Word Who is Prophet, Priest, and King; only there do we learn of the Lamb sacrificed to bring salvation to a lost and dying world, the majestic Ruler of a kingdom that will last for all eternity. When we have a solid biblical grasp of who the Savior is, and of what He accomplished on our behalf in His life and atoning death, our hearts are filled with awe and adoration at the mention of His name, “Jesus.”
