• Paradise Regained by Chris Donato

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2008

    A crowd gathered around Jesus of Nazareth and wondered: Could this person be the son of David, the one who, like David, wreaks havoc upon our enemies? A few of the local leaders standing by did not take kindly to …Read More

  • Some Dance to Forget by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2008

    It is a sure sign of the fall that we so egregiously miss what we lost. Jesus calls us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness precisely because our priorities are all out of line. Even that …Read More

  • A Tale of Two Kingdoms by Michael Horton

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2008

    There is no better time to refresh our memories about the “two kingdoms” doctrine than at election time in the United States, when American Protestantism often seems divided more by its political allegiances than its faith and practice. In the …Read More

  • Believing God by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2008

    We live in an age of spin and propaganda. We no longer weigh careful arguments and reach our conclusions judiciously. Instead, we inhabit what one cultural critic called a “sensate culture.” We do not think, we feel. We do not …Read More

  • How the Kingdom Comes by Joel Beeke

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2008

    Matthew 13 presents a priceless display of some parables of Christ and also gives His reasons for using this device in His teaching ministry. Best of all, it offers two examples of Christ’s own interpretation of His parables. They …Read More

  • Put Off and Put On by Jerry Bridges

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2008

    One of the principles of Christian growth is called the “put off and put on” principle (see Eph. 4:22–24). Behind the principle lies the fact that there are always sinful attitudes and actions we need to put off …Read More

  • The King of Kings by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    The gospel of Luke ends with a supremely jarring statement: “Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up into …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

  • 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

  • The Coming of the Kingdom by Keith Mathison

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    If you want to start a debate, simply ask a group of Christians to explain what the Bible has to say about church government. If you want to start a shouting match, ask them what the Bible has to say …Read More

  • The Children’s Crusade by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    Context is everything. Consider for a moment the text that gives this column its name. My job here is to take whatever theme the editors have come up with for a given issue, and tie it into the call …Read More

  • Two Kingdoms by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    What is the kingdom of God? It’s a simple question, yet if I were to ask that same question to a hundred theologians I would likely get a hundred different answers. The kingdom of God is not some …Read More

  • Former Things by Scotty Smith

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    Having read this incredible collage of articles on God’s kingdom in this Advent season edition of Tabletalk, hopefully you’re beginning to wonder how to “bring home” all this rich theology to your context and community. What are some …Read More

  • God’s Other Kingdom by Gene Edward Veith

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    We often talk about how God is “sovereign” over all things. The term has to do with God’s providential control over His creation — that is to say, everything that exists — and, in different contexts, with His action in …Read More

  • Thy Kingdom Come by Keith Mathison

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2007

    Our Lord’s Sermon on the Mount is not a “three points and a poem” sermon. In fact, in the course of this single sermon, Jesus touches on more than twenty topics. All of these topics are worthy of our …Read More
