Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 16.  Today we come to the conclusion of our study of this great chapter.  Let me ask you to turn back in the pages of your mind to our study of Matthew 16 verses 13-20 and then 21-23.  If you don’t remember those, or you weren’t with us, you might scan with your...

The Ark of Salvation and the Covenant with Noah

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

Genesis 6:9-22

The Ark of Salvation and the Covenant with Noah

If you have your Bibles, please turn with me to Genesis 6. We have seen God's glorious work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. We have seen his special favor towards man highlighted in Genesis 2. We have come to the saddest moment in human history in Genesis, chapter 3, with the fall...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 16.  As you will recall in our study of Matthew 16 and the first 12 verses of this passage, we see Jesus rebuke the Pharisees and the scribes and warn His disciples against their teaching.  And then in verses 13 through 20, we see a confession by Peter which represents the view of...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew 16.  As we've already noted, Matthew 15 through 17 proves a turning point in the gospel of Matthew.  In those passages not only the leaders of the people of Israel but the crowds themselves reject the Lord Jesus Christ.  It's not that they have bad thoughts about Him, it's not that they openly oppose...

A World of Corruption and God's Singular Grace

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

Part 1

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 6. We have seen God's glorious work of creation in Genesis, chapter 1. We have seen the covenant established with the crown of God's creation in Genesis, chapter 2. We have seen the fall of man in Genesis, chapter 3. We have seen the consequences of the fall in the life of Adam's...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 16.  As we have already seen, Matthew 15, 16, and 17, the central chapters in the gospel of Matthew, record a turning point in the ministry of Christ.  The crowds continue to follow Him.  But now even the crowds openly reject His message and His claims to be Messiah.  They continue wanting...

The Godly Line

Sin, Death, and Salvation (The Effects of Sin in the World)

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 5. We have seen God's glorious work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. We've seen His special favor toward mankind recounted in Genesis 2. We've come to the saddest moment in human history in Genesis 3. The doctrinal point of that passage, of course, is to show in the words of the Apostle Paul...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 15.  Last week as we were looking at Matthew 15: 21 through 28, we commented that 15:21 begins a new section in Jesus' ministry.  Scholars of the gospel call this the retirement ministry where He draws away from Galilee and ministers in Gentile territory for a while, ministering to His disciples and to...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I'd  invite you to turn with me to Matthew 15.  We're in Matthew 15, and I'd like to direct your attention to  verse 21.  Verse 21 begins a new segment in Jesus' ministry.  The great Galilean ministry is done.  It ends in verse 20 of chapter 15.  And now Jesus enters into a distinctively Gentile  territory.  He is now in the region of...

The Two Seeds (The Spread of Sin into the World)

In Genesis, chapter 4 we have seen God's glorious work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. Specifically the creation of Adam and Eve and the covenant relationship that God established with them in Genesis 2. We have seen that sad picture of the fall in Genesis 3 and in our study of the first half of Genesis 4, we've already begun to see the effects of the fall...
