• The Supremacy of Christ by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2004

    I wonder if it is proper to have a “favorite” book of the Bible. The idea scratches like fingernails on a chalk-board. What would induce us to prefer one portion of the Word of God to another? It would seem …Read More

  • Unqualified Supremacy by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2004

    A few years ago I heard a sermon by the eminent Swiss theologian Dr. Roger Nicole. Prior to the sermon, I read the bulletin for the service which noted Dr. Nicole’s sermon title. I recall that I became somewhat …Read More

  • Our Great High Priest by Robert Rothwell

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2004

    As a former resource consultant for Ligonier Ministries, I had the opportunity to speak with many people on the telephone. Most of them were Christians eager to find materials to help them learn more about apologetics, the Bible, theology, Christian …Read More

  • The Final Word of God by Douglas Kelly

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2004

    Many years ago some of us were facing a potentially negative situation in a small community; one in which we felt great evil could be let loose if there were not divine intervention. An elderly cousin of ours from the …Read More

  • The Only Redeemer by Douglas Kelly

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2004

    The heart of Hebrews chapter 2 is conveyed to us by an unsophisticated, and yet very profound old Gospel hymn: “No angel could his place have taken; High of all the High though he; The Loved One on the cross …Read More

  • The Christ of the Three Appearings by Sinclair Ferguson

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2004

    Many pastors, perhaps most, take a very deep breath before they commit themselves to preaching through Hebrews! Understandably so, for it brings most Christians into a world that is alien and distant: Melchizedek and Aaron, temple and furniture, blood and …Read More

  • Before the Throne of God by Douglas Kelly

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2004

    The Epistle to the Hebrews was written to encourage Jewish believers who had professed faith in Christ not to backslide from Him in order to return to the still impressive Temple rituals of pre–A.D. 70 Judaism. What the …Read More

  • In Jesus’ Name by Chris Donato

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2004

    In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.” Is this just habit, a formal closing in public prayer? Or, is it a powerful declaration that we who pray in that name are in Him to whom that name belongs? Well, Christians from …Read More

  • The Moral of the Story by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2004

  • Kingdom Life by Dennis Johnson

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    Jesus promised that the kingdom of God would come in power before some of His hearers faced death (Mark 9:1). After His resurrection, He again spoke to His disciples about the kingdom of God (Acts 1:3). On the …Read More

  • Old Expectations by Iain Duguid

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    When Jesus started his earthly ministry, he began by “proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom” (Matt. 4:23). Yet nowhere in the Gospels do we see Jesus giving a clear definition of the kingdom. The reason is simple: Jesus didn …Read More

  • Types and Shadows

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2007

    There is an abundance of biblical research today in many fields of scholarship — all except biblical typology. Liberal scholars deny the possibility of typology, the Scriptures being reduced to a mere anthology of ancient writings. Conservative commentaries, too, largely …Read More

  • Family Traits by Wynn Kenyon

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2007

    The family is central to the biblical ethic. It is the primary image of the relationship of the saints to God. The work of Christ was required to bring about regeneration and adoption, making believers heirs of God and joint …Read More

  • What Love Is This? by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2007

  • A Love Greater than Jacob’s

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2007
