Understanding Covenant in the Book of Hebrews

But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises. Hebrews 8:6 The assignment given me in this column is to help us understand this text from the book of Hebrews (actually vv. 6-13). I am to exegete it in such a manner that I deal with questions like: Was the old covenant bad? How do we understand the reality of covenantal continuity and the new and better covenant under which we serve? This may sound simple enough, but no less. . .

The Road to Emmaus — Remembering the Wonder of the Story

Stories On the Road to Emmaus Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures. – Luke 24:27 “Daddy, tell me the story again. Please!” Children love stories. They do not mind if they are passed along by memory or in turning the pages of a book, just tell them a story. They will listen in wonder and ask for the same stories to be read over and over again. They cannot get enough. This is another example of why we, Christians of all ages, must become like. . .

Texts That Trouble

By in on

We are called to meditate on God’s Word day and night, to find it a sweet delight.

Audio: Re: Joys, Studies in Philippians (Sound Teaching Bible Study)

Four-part series with Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr.

In Philippians Paul calls the saints to greater joy, more potent humility, more steadfast peace, that we would be mindful of all that Jesus has accomplished for us. We tend to look to Paul for meaty theology. We ought also to look to him for sound living.

We pray that like the saints at Philippi, we will come out the other side marked by joy.

Audio: Free in Christ, Galatians Bible Study

O foolish evangelicals. Who has told you you’re any different from the foolish Galatians? Paul warned the Galatians about becoming slaves once more, while we who should be living free in Christ, slink down to the barracks to become slaves ourselves. In this study of Paul’s stern letter, we consider our calling to rest in Christ, to rejoice in His provision, and to live as free men. Christ came to set us free. May we be free indeed.
