  • Are There Still Prophets in Our Day?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Apr 09, 2011 Category: Articles

  • Preaching Christ

    from R.C. Sproul Apr 07, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The church of the twenty-first century faces many crises. One of the most serious is the crisis of preaching. Widely diverse philosophies of preaching vie for acceptance among contemporary clergy. Some see the sermon as a fireside chat; others, as a stimulus for psychological health; still others, as a commentary on contemporary politics. But some still view the exposition of sacred Scripture as a necessary ingredient to the office of preaching. In light of these views, it is always helpful to go to the New Testament to seek or glean the method and message found in the biblical record of apostolic preaching. Keep Reading

  • The Christ of the Old and New

    from Tim Challies Apr 05, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "We have all heard the ancient maxim about the relationship between the Old and New Testaments: 'The new is in the old concealed, and the old is in the new revealed.' While the words concealed and revealed do not entirely accurately describe the relationship between the testaments, they do help us grasp the fundamental truth that the New Testament is found in seed form throughout the pages of the Old Testament and that the Old Testament blossoms forth as a flower in the New Testament."
