The Rich Man and The Beggar

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 7

Luke 16:19  (ID: 2238)

The parable of the rich man and Lazarus tells of a wealthy man who ignored God and went to hell, while the beggar Lazarus believed God and went to heaven. Through this story Jesus warns that it is impossible to serve both God and money—and to serve God, we must first trust His Word. Unpacking this poignant parable, Alistair Begg demonstrates the importance of believing God’s Word: if Scripture does not cause us to trust Christ, then nothing will.
