• In the Fullness of Time by David Holwerda

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2005

    The Christmas season is filled with excitement and joy — and busyness. Retail stores have lengthened the season because successful sales and happy shoppers are critical for the economic success of many. In the church, the Advent season lasts four weeks …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

  • 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

  • The Lordship of Christ by Greg Barolet

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2005

    Deus aut homo malus. Christ is either “God or a bad man.” It was C.S. Lewis who took it one step further stating that Jesus was either the Lord, a liar, or a lunatic. Why bother asking? Well, good …Read More

  • Christ the Victor by Albert Mohler

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    “The twentieth century, it is safe to say, has made us all into deep historical pessimists.” So observed Francis Fukuyama in his seminal 1992 book, The End of History and the Last Man. What happened? The nineteenth century’s humanistic …Read More

  • Worship the King by Joseph Wheat

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    Why are Americans so fascinated with the British royal family? Though I hate to admit it, I too share this fascination. I can still see in my mind the opulence of Charles and Diana’s wedding. I can also see …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

  • Seated at the Right Hand of the Father by John Nunes

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    We know the story well. On many occasions after Easter, Jesus appeared plainly to many people, especially to His disciples. Then, about forty days post-resurrection, before their very eyes, He was taken up into heaven. But what meaning does this …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

  • Name Above All Names by Greg Barolet

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2004

    Before I was regenerate, I was degenerate. I never looked into names and their meanings. I was looking with the eye but not through the eye, and hearing with the ear but not through the ear. My mind was disengaged …Read More
