  • The Gospel of the Gospels

    from Daniel Hyde Feb 04, 2009 Category: Articles

    Quick. What are the Gospels? Time is up. Did you answer: "The Gospels are the biographies of Jesus Christ?" When we read the Gospels as biographies only, we basically look at them like trees apart from the proverbial forest. There is a better way to read and hear them. The Gospels are biography, but they are theological interpretations of the life of Jesus Christ with the purpose of proclaiming the coming of the king of Israel and the inauguration of His kingdom over all the earth.

  • The Witness of Matthew

    from R.C. Sproul Feb 03, 2009 Category: Articles

    In the history of biblical studies, we have seen in the last two centuries the rise of so-called "higher criticism." So much of higher criticism is fueled by skepticism with respect to the reliability of the biblical texts. Since orthodox Christians stand opposed to many of the arguments of higher critics, they sometimes overlook valuable insights that can be gained through critical analysis of the text. Some of these analyses can be very helpful to our endeavor of seeking an accurate understanding of the Bible. Keep Reading
  • The Unchanging Gospel

    from Burk Parsons Feb 02, 2009 Category: Articles

    I am a Christian, and I am a Protestant. I am a Christian because I trust Jesus Christ alone, believing that salvation is accomplished by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. I am a devout Protestant because I continue to protest against anyone who even suggests that salvation is accomplished in any other way. Keep Reading

    from Keith Mathison Jan 31, 2009 Category: Articles

    While most of the other prophets can be dated with some degree of accuracy, it is notoriously difficult to date the book of Joel. Suggestions have been offered ranging from the ninth century to the second century B.C. There are a number of good commentaries on Joel, and the following are five of the most helpful.    Keep Reading
  • Mercy Established

    from Chris Donato Jan 30, 2009 Category: Articles

    For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. For the law appoints men in their weakness as high priests, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever. Keep Reading
  • Secularism: Ignoring the Eternal (pt. 4)

    from R.C. Sproul Jan 29, 2009 Category: Articles

    Such a standpoint cannot be found in the New Testament. The Christ of Scripture was profoundly concerned with this world. This world was the site and purpose of the Incarnation. The God of heaven so loved this world that He sent His Son to redeem it. This is the world God created. This is the world God is redeeming. There is no other theater of God's redemptive action than this world. There is a profound sense in which we are called to be secular people. Keep Reading
  • Secularism: Ignoring the Eternal (pt. 3)

    from R.C. Sproul Jan 28, 2009 Category: Articles

    For secularism, all life, every human value, every human activity must be understood in light of this present time. The secularist either flatly denies or remains utterly skeptical about the eternal. He either says there is no eternal or if there is we can know nothing about it. What matters is now and only now. All access to the above and the beyond is blocked. There is no exit from the confines of this present world. The secular is all that we have. We must make our decisions, live our lives, make our plans, all within the closed arena of this time--the here and now. Keep Reading

  • Secularism: Ignoring the Eternal (pt. 2)

    from R.C. Sproul Jan 27, 2009 Category: Articles

    Historically, the word secular is a positive word in the Christian's vocabulary. The church has always had a good view of that which was regarded as secular. In the Middle Ages, for example, men were ordained to a specific role in the priesthood that was called the "secular priesthood." These were men who had responsibilities which took them out of the institution of the church to minister in the world where there were specific needs requiring the healing touch or the priestly mission of the church.
