• The Cross and the Crown by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    Several years ago I heard about a large suburban church that rented a fifteen-thousand seat performance hall and invited a well-known college football coach to give his testimony about being a Christian coach. When I heard about this, what concerned …Read More

  • Humiliation to Exaltation by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    It just hangs there. It dangles as if it were simply an afterthought attached to the second chapter of Genesis. But we know there are no afterthoughts in the mind and inspiration of the Holy Ghost. Thus, we look at …Read More

  • He is Not Here, He is Risen by Chris Donato

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    Many Christians seem content to leave Jesus on the cross, while the resurrection often suffers from neglect. That the cross receives so much attention, however, is not without warrant. After all, the event was the “one act of righteousness” that …Read More

  • The Coming of the King by Ken Gentry

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    Few doctrines of the Bible receive more attention among evangelicals today than the second coming of Christ. And since His return is a foundational doctrine of the historic Christian faith, it well deserves our notice. Unfortunately though, the second advent …Read More

  • Jesus Christ Superstar by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    The biggest oxymoron in Hollywood may well be this one: Bad publicity. In the television age, what they say about you no longer matters, as long as they are talking about you. Face time is what it’s all about …Read More

  • Who Is Jesus? by John Duncan

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2005

    Who is Jesus ? This is the most contentious and divisive question that has ever been asked. No question has ever caused so much division. The apostle John wrote his letter with that question in mind. There were self-proclaimed prophets, in …Read More

  • The Face of God by Chris Donato

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2005

    As has been mentioned time and again in our study of the epistle of John, there were certain folks within that church who claimed a secret knowledge, one that set them apart from the rest of the crowd, setting them …Read More

  • Awaiting His Return by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2005

    There is a widespread fascination with the end of the world. Throughout history, we have witnessed the bold assertions of soothsayers, naysayers, and doomsdayers. Every day, self-proclaimed prophets of the end times make whimsical predictions about the future. Claiming to …Read More

  • Born of the Virgin Mary by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2005

    Along with the great theologian and philosopher Anselm of Canterbury we ask the question, Cur deus homo? Why the God-man? When we look at the biblical answer to that question, we see that the purpose behind the incarnation of Christ …Read More

  • The Suffering Servant by Donald Macleod

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2005

    John Murray, with good reason, argues that obedience is the most inclusive concept available to us for describing the redeeming work of Christ (Redemption Accomplished and Applied, p. 19). Other categories such as sacrifice and satisfaction cover some of the …Read More

  • I Need a Priest!

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2004

    We are attacked from every side. We have been besieged by sin and driven to desperation. We recognize our need and cry out for a priest — we don’t want someone who will tell us what to do, we don …Read More

  • 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
