    Romans 5:1-2

    If you are a justified sinner in the eyes of God, you have a peace that can never be breeched. But if you are not justified before God, then you are in a war. Where do you stand? Dr. Sproul looks at this thought in the last lecture of the “Justification by Faith Alone” series. View Resource

  • Saving Faith Media Resource by

    Romans 5:1-2

    What is saving faith? This question received a deserved amount of attention at the time of the Reformation, and it should receive just as much attention from us today. In this lesson, Dr. Sproul examines the three ingredients of saving faith asserted by the Reformers. View Resource

  • The Grace of God Media Resource by

    Romans 5:5

    The depth of God’s grace can be difficult to fathom and even harder to believe. Even those who rejoice in the notion of God’s grace may at times find themselves living at odds with His grace, subtly drawn more and more to rely on their own good works. In this lecture, Dr. Reeves examines our struggle to come to terms with God’s grace and presents a biblical vision of the glorious freedom that God gives to all who come to Him with empty and open hands.

  • Hindrances Strew All the Way” Media Resource by

    Romans 5:8

    The quest for assurance isn’t free of difficulties, so we need to be made aware of the obstacles along the way. In this lecture, Dr. Ferguson helps us anticipate the common snares that trip us up when we take our eyes off of Jesus Christ. View Resource

    Romans 5:8

    There is nothing that can qualify someone to come to faith in Jesus Christ, a truth that is vital to grasp if one is to understand the Marrow Controversy. In this lesson, Dr. Ferguson highlights the distortions that rejecting this truth creates, including doubt concerning God’s love for us. View Resource

    What are the similarities between the old covenant and the new covenant? In God’s Law and the Christian, Dr. R.C. Sproul examines the old covenant law and explains how it is similar yet distinct from the new covenant. View Resource

  • Temptation Media Resource by

    Romans 5:12-19

    Immediately after His baptism, Jesus is driven into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil. We are reminded here not only of Israel’s testing in the wilderness, but of the original test—the temptation of Adam. In this lecture, Dr. R.C. Sproul compares and contrasts the temptations of the first Adam and the second Adam, explaining how the results of each rested on whether trust was placed in the Word of God. View Resource

  • Adam & Christ Media Resource by

    Romans 5:12-21

    Before we become united by faith to Jesus Christ, we are already united by nature to Adam, the forefather of humanity. As Dr. Ferguson explains in this lesson, no person is a spiritual island. Every individual is united either to Adam or to Christ. Union with Adam leads to sin, despair, and death. Union with Christ leads to forgiveness, hope, and eternal life. Christ’s offer to join Him in this new humanity is too important to ignore. View Resource

  • Justification, Part 2 Media Resource by

    Romans 5:12-21

    In the last lecture, we looked at justification by the imputed righteousness of Christ through faith alone as a gift from God. In Romans 5, Paul tells us the blessings that come with justification: peace with God, the presence of the Holy Spirit, access into his presence, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Then in verses 12 through 21, Paul wants us to know that our justification rests on the surest possible foundation to give us comfort in the midst of suffering. Thus, in this lecture, we will see how Paul takes up the work of the second Adam, Christ, … View Resource

  • Sin, Part 2 Media Resource by

    Romans 5:12-21

    In the last lesson we began to look at the gospel Paul preached by considering the sin that makes the good news necessary. In Romans, Paul shows us how widespread and deep-rooted this plague of sin is. For hearts in rebellion against God, His gift of righteousness only makes sense if we lay hold of our unrighteousness and incapability of becoming righteous on our own (Rom. 3:20). In this lesson, we find Paul continuing to open up for us the seriousness of sin. Specifically, Dr. Waters, through Paul, shows us the landscape of humanity and traces the problem of sin … View Resource

  • A Tale of Two Representatives Media Resource by

    Romans 5:12-21

    Who wants to be punished for what someone else did? We can agree that in at least some cases, it would be unjust for someone to be punished for something they didn’t do. But can that be applied to Adam in the Garden? How is God just by holding Adam’s sin and guilt against us? In “A Tale of Two Representatives,” Dr. Sproul helps us understand the complexities that surround this critical and difficult question. View Resource
