  • Grace in James, John, and Jude Media Resource by

    James 1:17-18

    The letters of James, 1–3 John, and Jude are part of the Catholic Epistles. They are “catholic” because they are universal, not being addressed to a particular church.

  • Grace to Thessalonica Media Resource by

    2 Thessalonians 2:13-14

    When Paul preached the gospel in the Macedonian port town of Thessalonica, he preached with such power and clarity that the people rioted in opposition to the truth. It is therefore no surprise that 1 and 2 Thessalonians are rich with the same power and clarity of the gospel that Paul had originally preached. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson showcases the truth of God’s grace and power in these letters so that we might recognize the hope of the epistles to the Thessalonians as our own. View Resource

  • Acts & the Apostle Peter Media Resource by

    Acts 2:22-23

    The Apostle Peter plays a significant role in the book of Acts, which should be no surprise considering his prominent role in the Gospels. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson takes a closer look at Peter’s sermons on the day of Pentecost and throughout the book of Acts. This narrowed focus on the sermons of the Apostle provides a logical transition into the writings of the Apostle, as Dr. Lawson moves in this lecture into a study of the doctrines of grace in 1 and 2 Peter.

  • Grace in Eternity Media Resource by

    Romans 8:29-30

    There isn’t a systematic approach to the doctrines of grace quite like the one found in the book of Romans. It is filled with lofty theology that can only be matched by its soaring doxology for the God from whom, through whom, and to whom are all things. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson traces the Apostle Paul’s argument for the doctrine of sovereign election in eternity past throughout Romans, while also demonstrating the particular nature of Christ’s death for the elect.

  • Grace in Providence Media Resource by

    Romans 8:29-30

    God’s electing love for us in eternity meets us in the providence of history. For all those whom God elects in eternity, He calls, regenerates, justifies, and sanctifies in real time and space. In the last lecture, we studied the doctrines of sovereign election and definite atonement in Romans.

  • Paul’s Magnum Opus Media Resource by

    Romans 1:18-32

    The book of Romans is the Apostle Paul’s theological magnum opus. It contains a rich presentation of the doctrines of grace, and it is the closest thing we have to a systematic theology of any book of the Bible. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson introduces a three-part study through Paul’s letter to the Romans by first examining the doctrine of total depravity, so that God’s grace might shine brighter through the darkness of man’s sin.
