Resources on Forgiveness

The action all takes place – a rather familiar story – it all takes place at a dinner party in the home of a Pharisee, a religious leader of the time, a Pharisee by the name of Simon. It was customary among Pharisees, especially on the Sabbath Day after Sabbath worship, to bring a guest of honor home and have a large Sabbath meal with your Pharisee friends...

This psalm has two main parts, two main halves to it. Verses 1 through 5 is about forgiveness. And in the second part, verses 6 through 11, is about God’s protection and direction. I remember studying this psalm in seminary. It was one I did an exegesis paper on. I had to study the Hebrew, the original language, and this long paper about this psalm. And in it...

Richard Sibbes was a 16th -century writer and he wrote a little book called, The Bruised Reed. And in it, he unpacks Isaiah chapter 42 verse 3, “A bruised reed he will not break.” And in that little book, Sibbes writes that “God’s children are bruised reeds, before their conversion and many times after. For usually God empties men of themselves and makes them nothing before He will use...

Philemon

There are many voices that compete for our attention, but week after week we hear the voice of almighty God speaking to us in holy Scripture, so let me invite you now please to take a copy of God’s Word in your hands and turn to Paul’s letter to Philemon, Paul’s letter to Philemon, on page 1000 - after Titus; right before Hebrews.  Once you have your Bibles...

Ephesians 4:31-5:2

“Bitterness, Forgiveness, and Being Like God”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Ephesians, chapter four. We finally come to the end of this chapter, but Paul's line of thought continues on into chapter five. In fact, this section from Ephesians 4:25 doesn't really end until about...

Psalms Book 3

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to take them, open them, and turn with me to Psalm 85 as we continue to work our way through the Third Book of the Psalms. You may remember...way back, we started working through the Psalms in the First Book in Psalm 1, and then we studied the Book of Genesis, and then we came back after studying Genesis and...

Leviticus

If you have your Bibles, let me ask you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 40.  I really meant that!  Exodus, chapter 40.  I’ll get you back to Leviticus 9, but I want to remind you of something that we’ve already seen.

In Exodus, chapter 40, beginning in verse 34, we have the account of the filling of the tabernacle with the glory...

Leviticus 7:11-38
“The Wave”
Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Leviticus, chapter 7. We began working through the Book of Leviticus last summer, and our study has moved around to different places: in the autumn it was on Sunday nights, and we were studying on Lord's Day evenings through the first...

Matthew

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...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 18, as we continue our study of this great passage together.  I’d invite you to look back to the very first of the chapter and scan along the passage itself leading up to Matthew 18, verses 15 through 20.  You know that the whole of this passage is concerned with how we live...
