• 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • The Author of Faith by Sinclair Ferguson

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2004

    My last contact with the late Professor John Murray — to whose writings and influence I, like many others, owe a lasting debt — was particularly memorable for me, partly because I asked him a question to which he gave the answer …Read More

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

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2004

    Everybody loves Jesus. Marxists love Jesus, because He was such a radical revolutionary. Unitarians love Jesus, because He befriended the social outcasts. Liberals love Jesus because, well, because He was liberal. Even some conservatives love Jesus, because He was so …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

  • 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

  • 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

  • “To Fulfill All Righteousness” by Knox Chamblin

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2004

    Behold, I havecome to do your will, O God,” said the Messiah when He came into the world (Heb. 10:5–7). The writings of the New Testament, especially the four Gospels, testify that Jesus was faithful to that resolve …Read More
