• Our Ethical Basis

    Judges 21:25

    Dr. R.C. Sproul notes that Christian ethics are theonomic, that is, governed by God’s law. This does not mean the church is called to institute a theocracy in the civil realm. It does mean that no correct ethical decision ...Read More

  • Out From the Ark

    Genesis 8:13–17

    Some might argue Noah helped save himself by building the ark. Note however, it was the Lord who graciously gave Him the blueprints for it (Gen. 6:15–16). Moreover, it was not his work that justified him but rather his faith ...Read More

  • The Parable of the Good Samaritan

    Luke 10:25–37

    Dr. R.C. Sproul points out that the Bible never talks about a universal brotherhood of man. Only those who trust in Jesus alone for salvation are God’s beloved children, so a non-Christian cannot, theologically speaking, be our brother. But ...Read More

  • The Parable of the Tenants

    Mark 12:1–9

    The parable of the tenants was a prophecy to its original hearers of the death of Christ, but it also shows us how much unredeemed people hate God. As Dr. R.C. Sproul points out in his commentary Mark, that ...Read More

  • A Parting Of Ways

    Genesis 33:12–17

  • The Patriarchal Blessing

    Genesis 17:26-29

  • Paul at Corinth

    Acts 18:7–11

    In the holy war conquest of Canaan, enemy cities were burned as whole burnt offerings, almost certainly by God’s altar fire. In Acts 2, tongues of fire fell on God’s new altar-people, who then take holy war to the world ...Read More

  • Paul at Ephesus

    Acts 19:1–10

    With the destruction of the temple, the outward features of the old covenant came to an end. We no longer take Nazirite vows and we no longer expect either defilement or blessing to be transmitted through clothes. The “clothes” of ...Read More

  • Paul Returns to Jerusalem

    Galatians 2:1–2

    Many of the problems we have in the church arise from the misunderstandings we have about other Christians and the work they are doing. Teachers, especially, can run into difficulties when their words and intentions are misrepresented. As Christians we ...Read More

  • Paul’s Conversion

    Galatians 1:15–17

    It is incredible to realize that God has not only chosen us for salvation, He has also given us each to a vocation designed to bless His church. What is your calling? Are you appointed to be a teacher, to ...Read More
