    2 Peter 1:4-10

    In order to study more fully into the doctrine assurance of faith, we must consider the profound and biblically nuanced way the Puritans dealt with the topic of assurance. In this lesson, Dr. Beeke examines Westminster Confession of Faith 18.1, which many people consider the greatest statement ever written on the subject of assurance. Through this section of the confession and the history behind it, we will further examine the subjects of false assurance and true assurance. View Resource

  • Being Sure of the Savior Media Resource by

    2 Peter 1:5

    In this message Dr. Sproul takes a different look at assurance by showing what a genuine assurance of salvation looks like. It begins with having a clear understanding both of what salvation means, and what it involves. We see in “Being Sure of the Savior,” that though there will still be sin in our lives, as long as Christ is in our life, as long as His righteousness is applied to us and His justice given to us freely by God’s grace, we can be sure that we are saved.

We will also look closely at four spiritual disciplines that cultivate assurance. View Resource

  • Four Steps Backward Media Resource by

    2 Peter 1:16

    How do you know whether something is true? Do you test it by observation? Think through it logically? In this lesson, Dr. Sproul considers important questions from epistemology, the study of knowledge. As he sets forth four logical premises that are necessary for all reasonable discourse, he shows that many atheists violate basic logic in order to deny God’s existence. View Resource

  • It’s Christmas! Media Resource by

    2 Peter 1:16

    At Christmas, many people could care less about what really happened two thousand years ago in Bethlehem. To them, stories like Christ’s birth are discarded into the realm of myth and fable. Perhaps that’s where your thinking once was, but the time came when all of that changed. In this series entitled The Messiah is Born, Dr. Sproul begins by reminding us once again that “It’s Christmas.” View Resource

  • The Gospel as Historical Fact Media Resource by

    2 Peter 1:16-21

    The gospel of Jesus Christ is “good news.” It is “good” because it tells the greatest story ever told about how God redeems those who repent and believe in Christ alone for salvation. It is “news” because it is rooted in the historical events of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. In this session, Dr. Albert Mohler explains why the historicity of the biblical record is essential for the truth claims of the gospel. View Resource

  • How Do We Know Which Interpretation Is Right? Media Resource by

    2 Peter 1:16-21

    There are many conflicting and mutually exclusive interpretations of Scripture. Skeptics point to this as a reason to reject Christianity’s truth claims, and many Christians who accept the truth of Scripture wonder how they are to know which interpretation is right. In this lecture, Dr. Derek Thomas provides Christians with guidelines to assist them in understanding not only why there are so many interpretations, but also how they are to evaluate and weigh conflicting interpretations.

  • The Authority of Scripture Media Resource by

    2 Peter 1:19

    Our view of the Bible can influence every other aspect of our lives. When we view Scripture as irrelevant or as one voice among many, its influence over our lives will be limited. On the other hand, when we recognize God’s Word as our final authority, it constantly reforms us. In this lecture, Dr. Reeves will examine the different views of scriptural authority that emerged during the Reformation and will discuss how this issue continues to separate Roman Catholics and Protestants.

  • Gospel Grace in 2 Peter Media Resource by

    2 Peter 2:1-12

    In his second letter, Peter writes to protect God’s people from false teachers, and he sets himself apart from such teachers by heralding the doctrines of grace so that God’s people might confirm their calling and election and persevere to the end. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson highlights the key texts of 2 Peter that teach the doctrines of grace, with a particular emphasis on the doctrines of total depravity and irresistible grace. View Resource

  • Limited Atonement Media Resource by

    2 Peter 3:8-10

    The most common view of the atonement of Jesus is that Jesus died for everyone—that is, all people from all places in all times, every single human being that ever existed. But in order to take advantage of the benefits of the cross, one must first believe to be saved. Such a view is attractive, until we take a closer look at it. Dr. Sproul will look at this view in light of Scripture in this message entitled “Limited Atonement.” View Resource
