One of the frustrating things about Christianity is that we do not have a tangible king. This means that we cannot simply knock on a door and see a king at work. We are a people who are to walk by faith with our eyes peering to the heavens as we sojourn on this earth. How can we be assured that our Lord is walking with us? How can we be assured tha…
 
If Christ is going to have a successful mission he better accomplish something that is tangible. Rome and Israel both have an issue with the way Christ conducts His holy war. In their mind Christ is a weak king whose mission falls flat, Christ is a king with bigger ideals than power, and Christ is a king who is not to be feared. Are these claims tr…
 
Our story of God’s pilgrim people skips ahead to the tragedy of Israel’s rebellion. We would hope that with the huge build up and the drama of being called out of Egypt that the Lord’s people would possess the land of Canaan. However, God’s pilgrim people fail to see the big picture. Why would we want to see the bigger picture of God’s redemptive m…
 
It is shocking to think that the God who rules over heaven and earth would allow himself to be lead around by mere mortals. You would think that the God of heaven would want to put the arrogant betrayers in their place, but God does not do such a thing. How does Christ's trial show that heaven's wisdom is radically superior to earth's wisdom?…
 
If Christ merely pays our debt for today then we are still in trouble. This would mean that our sins are only covered until today. It is true that God is merciful if he does this, but God does more than merely take a few sins away. God takes all our sins away and restores us to a right relationship with him. In fact, we have a priest who is better …
 
Christ is both God and man. This is not an easy doctrine for us to understand. As human beings we want to bring God down so that Christ is maybe a little less God, but still greater than man. Or maybe his humanity is not so human, but not quite divine. So, why is it important for us to see Christ as being both God and man? Why are these two natures…
 
Christ's day and his hour is at hand. Christ celebrates a passover as he has most likely done before with his disciples. However this time he applies the blessings of the passover to himself identifying himself as the passover and the one who sheds the blood of the covenant. What is Christ doing here? What does this mean in the overall trajectory o…
 
Peter states that promise is for you and your children. Does this mean that the promise is merely the promise of the Holy Spirit that is shown at pentecost? Is this a promise that goes before before pentecost? What passages could Peter have in mind to show that this promise is more than just pentecost? Ultimately, does this text imply that we are c…
 
Luke teaches that Christ is the messiah, he is the one to establish the promises of God, and ultimately to be the administrator of peace. So we conclude our series by turning to the last chapter in Acts. Paul is under house arrest because of the Gospel, rejected by the jews, and fails to convert the government leaders. How can we be assured that Ch…
 
There is no doubt that we are saved by the Lord's grace. However, how much grace does God give us to come to Christ? Does he give us enough to counteract the fall? Do we really need grace after Adam's fall? Or are we so fallen and depraved that without the Lord's grace overwhelming us we would never turn to him? How much of a gift is our faith at t…
 
Christ is the God Man who enters history to do his father's will. John tells us that Christ tabernacled among us. This means that Christ is God dwelling in the midst of his people in the flesh. If Christ is the tabernacle then why does Christ go to the temple? Why do Christ’s parents bring him to the temple? If Christ is the walking temple then why…
 
Joseph confronts his brothers after their scheme to manipulate Joseph to forgive them. The thought of God's providential care has not resonated within them. Joseph, has been betrayed in several ways, he has been exalted to a high position, and yet he does not seek to get vengeance on his brothers. Why is Joseph willing to move beyond his past? What…
 
The story of Christ seems to show that God is doing too little too late. It seems as if the Lord has not fulfilled his promises. However, as we look deeper in the story we find that Christ is the one who will overcome. Our problem as humans is that we do not live our lives in light of the Lord’s wisdom, but on the world’s wisdom. So, what in the st…
 
When we talk Christmas we think of Christ's entrance into history. This would be one of one of the obvious reasons for Christmas. However, there is another child who is born in time. This is the child who prepares the way for Christ. Why does the story of Christ have a delay? Why does Luke delay the birth of Christ and first communicate John's birt…
 
Mary does not give praise to herself even though Elizabeth is honored to have such a person in her presence. Mary turns her attention away from herself and to the Lord. What is the Lord doing through this child? Why should we follow Christ when his ministry begins in such humiliation? What is Luke teaching us about Christ's humiliation and exaltati…
 
Christ promises that he will send his helper. It is encouraging to know that Christ's return to heaven does not leave us as orphans. How can we be sure that Christ's teaching will resonate within us if Christ is in heaven? Why does Christ have to go away? How can we be sure that Christ’s work will accomplish its redemptive goal when he says the fat…
 
Christ is facing the cross, and setting into motion the events promised in Matthew 24:1-13. We may still wonder: am I in Christ's kingdom? Does kingdom entrances mean that we have to take 2 million or 5 million dollars and double the amount? Is God going to send us away if we do not seem righteous enough? How do we know if we are members of His kin…
 
Christ warns that one will be taken while another is left behind. Christ mentions Noah’s flood with people going about their day to day lives. Christ mentions something about a thief who steals at an unexpected time. What does Christ mean by all this? Does this mean that there is some sort of secret rapture? Is it sinful to live a peaceful and quie…
