    FROM TABLETALK | January 2015

  • What Are Justification and Sanctification? by Guy Waters

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2015

  • Preaching the Gospel to Yourself by Joe Thorn

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2015

  • May the Best Man Win by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2015

  • Which Christ? by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2014

  • A Summary of Orthodox Christology by Mark Jones

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2014

    There is no more important question than the one Jesus asked His disciples: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matt. 16:15). No question has been more hotly debated, completely and partially misunderstood, ignored to one’s peril, and …Read More

  • For Us and For Our Salvation by David Gibson

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2014

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2014

    The Sadducees and Pharisees were no dummies. They just weren’t as smart as their enemy. As we read through the gospel accounts, it seems their strategy was simple: they would put an end to Jesus by forcing Him to …Read More
