The Wonder of Salvation

1 Peter 1:10–12  (ID: 1876)

While the Bible is a diverse book of many authors and genres, the Gospel it contains is a unified message that hinges on Christ. In this message, Alistair Begg explains that the Old and New Testaments form one unified story of salvation. Peter wrote that as Christ’s followers, we are in a better position to understand God’s revelation than even the greatest ancient prophets. This should give us joy as we consider the wonder of having all our sins forgiven.


10Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, 11inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. 12It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.
