How People Change

Just before we jump in and read, something to consider. Just a few years ago, there were two sports stories that were separated by only five months and they became really some of the biggest human interest stories in that stretch of time where two college football coaches, Joe Paterno and Bobby Petrino, were fired - Paterno on November 9, 2011, and Petrino five months later on April...

Jim Carrey, hilarious actor. One thing I’ve enjoyed about him over the past few years is he’s made some pretty serious films and he won some awards for those films. And he was called upon in 2015 to give a speech at the Golden Globes. And when he walks on stage, he’s just kind of funny, so these A-listers in Hollywood, he just walked out and they all...

Stories that Stick

As you’re being seated, please turn with me in your Bibles to the gospel of Mark in the fourth chapter. It’s on page 839 in your pew Bibles. As we begin a series, as Wiley kindly mentioned, on the parables this evening, we begin with what we know as the Parable of the Sower.  And we’ll be looking at the latter half of that parable in Mark 4:10-20...

Zechariah Part 2: The Coming King

Amen. Please be seated. Now if you would, take your copies of God’s Word in your hands and turn with me to the prophecy of Zechariah chapter 10. We will read the second half of the chapter from verse six through verse twelve. You’ll find that on page 798. Before we read, let’s bow our heads and pray.

Lord, like the disciples responding to...

Luke 13:6-17

“Suspended Judgment and a Reason for Judgment”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Luke chapter 13 as we continue our way through the gospel of Luke. And as you turn to Luke 12:6-17, which is the passage we're going to give close attention to today, allow your...

Mark 11:27-12:12
“The Napa Valley Parable!”
Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Turn with me, if you would, first of all to the prophecy of Isaiah and to chapter five, and as we shall see in a minute, Jesus seems to be basing the parable that we’ll be looking at this evening on the opening verses of Isaiah 5, the so-called “Parable of the Vineyard.”

Mark 11:12-25
“Upset Over a Tree”
Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Turn with me now, if you would, to the Gospel of Mark once again. We began last Wednesday...we began in Mark 11, and we were looking together at the triumphal entry as Jesus and His disciples come from the region of Bethphage and Bethany to the Mount of Olives. And Jesus gave instructions...


The Lord's Day Morning

January 2, 2005
Titus 1:10-16
“Empty Talkers”
Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Titus, chapter one. Today we return to our study of Paul's pastoral letters to Timothy and Titus. You will have already noticed that we're not studying them in canonical order–we're not studying them in the order that they’re found...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 2. We’re going to be looking at verses 3-6 today as we continue to work our way through this great book of Scripture. Let's refresh our memory of what we've learned so far. In chapter 1, especially from verse 5 to the end of the chapter, John is responding to false teaching...


James 2:14-26 Faith Always Bears Fruit

If you have your Bibles I would invite you to turn with me to James, chapter two, as we continue our way through this great little book together. The first week we were in James we looked at the first verse and the words of greetings and we said, even then, that the very language that James used in his greetings, language...


If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to take them in hand and turn with me to Matthew, chapter 21. So far in Matthew 21, we have seen Jesus kingship clearly set forth in His triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem. And then in verses 12 through 17, we have seen His judgment against Israel, that has a form of worship and religion but denies the...


If you have your bible, I would invite You to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 18. We have been looking at this great passage for about a month or so. It's hard to believe that it all began with the question, "Who is the greatest?" Ever since the disciples asked that question, they have been treated to discussions of how to relate to their brothers, how to...


If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 12.  Throughout this chapter, we see the character of the Lord Jesus Christ contrasted clearly with the character of his opponents. Though His opponents, the Pharisees, were reputed to be among the most religious, among the most pious men in Israel in their day, in fact, we see throughout this chapter that it is their hearts...
