Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Well, it's a joy to be with you again as we continue now in The Acts of The Apostles. Some of you have a map in the back of your Bibles of Paul's missionary journeys, and in particular the journey to Rome that we want to look at. It's a fairly complicated journey, and...

“The Total Blessing”

Dr. Ligon Duncan III

Fourth, appreciate the context of this. Before this blessing is given, the children of Israel are assembled, getting ready to leave on a dangerous journey across the desert.

Just a while ago, at least in the Gospel of Mark it was...

Psalms Book 2

We’re continuing through the Psalms that we've been studying week by week, and tonight we're at Psalm 60. It's entitled, “A lament over defeat in battle and a prayer for help.” It has probably one of the longest introductions of any Psalm. It says, “For the choir director; according to Shushan Eduth. A Mikhtam of David, to teach; when he struggled with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab...

Mark

Mark 1:1-8 The Beginning of the Gospel

An Empty Life? (A series on Ecclesiastes)

Turn with me to Ecclesiastes, chapter 9. The author of this Book of Ecclesiastes, he called himself the Preacher, has a thesis and his thesis is: Life is empty; life is vain; life is meaningless; life is futile; life is frustrating; life is trivial; life is without satisfaction. And furthermore he says people attempt to fill that emptiness; they attempt to get relief from the lack of satisfaction...

An Empty Life? (A series on Ecclesiastes)

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Ecclesiastes 3. We've been working these last few weeks for about at month now, in fact, through the first two chapters of this great book of Ecclesiastes, and we've found it to be a very modern book in the sense of speaking to dilemmas that have a very contemporary ring about them, both the questions...

The People Believe, Worship and are Afflicted Exodus 4:27-5:14

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus 4, verse 27. Now we’re continuing our study in Exodus.
