    Was Jesus' Burial the End? (6 of 7)

    In the wake of Jesus' death, the actions of those who came to claim his body revealed their hearts: as far as they were concerned, the Jesus movement was all fizzled out. As Jesus was buried, though, a few faithful disciples watched and waited. Join with Alistair Begg as we look on to see the memory of this dispiriting burial soon replaced by a glorious hope.

    Video: "Refuge in the King" by Alistair Begg

    Who really rules the world? A cacophony of angry voices surrounds us, but from God’s perspective, mankind’s boasting is utterly ridiculous. Alistair Begg examines the hostility of man in the face of God’s sovereignty, the Father’s decree of the anointed Lordship of Christ, and the futility of rejecting His reign. The Gospel both woos and warns us: Jesus is coming again, and the only way to flee God’s wrath is to take refuge in His mercy, provided in the gift of His Son.

    Why Did Jesus Endure the Cross? (3 of 7)

    The Roman army was one of the most rigorous, well-trained military outfits the world had ever seen. How astonishing, then, is the picture the gospels paint of the Roman soldiers' cruel ridicule of Jesus-the robe they mockingly draped on his shoulder, the crown of thorns they crushed on his brow, the scepter of reeds they used to beat him. Why, Alistair Begg asks, would Jesus endure such a grotesque, gratuitous display? Watch to find out.

    Jesus: Can We Be Neutral? (2 of 7)

    Pontius Pilate was a man of authority-and he knew it. Proud, shrewd, and eager to appease the crowd of accusers before him, he was prepared to attempt the impossible: confronting Jesus face-to-face, yet remaining uncommitted. But is such neutrality toward Christ truly an option? Watch as Alistair Begg points us to the Bible's answer.

    Pilate Asks a Crucial Question: Who is Jesus? (1 of 7)

    After he was betrayed, denied, and suddenly arrested, Jesus was brought to the palace of the Roman governor for questioning. As Pontius Pilate would soon discover, though, it wasn't Jesus who was truly on trial--it was himself. With the King of Kings standing before him, Pilate faced crucial questions of his own: Who was this Jesus? Why did he come? What did he do? And did it really matter? As Alistair Begg reminds us, the same vital questions confront us today. Are we prepared to answer them?

    God's Act of Divine Vandalism (4 of 7)

    The moment of Jesus' death was surely one of the most dramatic in all of history. As Jesus uttered a heartfelt cry and then breathed his last, God committed an act of "divine vandalism," splitting the sacred curtain in his own temple top to bottom. After that, Alistair Begg explains, the world would never be the same. Listen in to learn why.

    The Witnesses (5 of 7)

    As Jesus hung dying on the cross, the disciples who had been by his side for years were suddenly nowhere to be found. In their place, the gospels describe two unlikely witnesses to Jesus' final moments: a Roman centurion and a remnant of faithful women. What did these witnesses see? And how did what they see transform them? Join in as Alistair Begg looks to the Bible for the answers.

    Easter Letter from Alistair Begg and Related Resources

    Dear Friend,

    As we turn the corner from winter to spring, we begin to look forward to spending time in the garden. The Bible story begins in a garden and in the closing scenes of the book of Revelation, John describes the new earth coming down from heaven as a garden in which the tree of life stands. In Genesis, we see the Garden of Eden turned into a desert because of sin and in Revelation that desert is turned back into a garden.

    Video: "The Duty of Children" by Alistair Begg

    The Apostle Paul took great care to address God’s intended order for relationships among believers. With respect to the family, the Bible instructs children to obey their parents, and parents bear the responsibility of training the children entrusted to them to love and obey God. Alistair Begg explores these commands, reminding us that our obedience is grounded in the Gospel and enabled by grace. Families that strive to follow this pattern in the strength that God provides demonstrate the reality of the Gospel through their lives.

    Sermons on Studying the Bible

    "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth." - 2 Timothy 2:15 (ESV)

    The Bible’s power to change us stems from the fact that it is God’s Word, breathed by Him and absolutely trustworthy. Simply agreeing with this truth is not enough, though–in order to hear God speak, we must read His Word. In this selection of messages, Alistair Begg encourages us to read the Scriptures prayerfully every day and apply what we learn, allowing the Word to do its work in our hearts.

    Download (Free) - Life After Death

    In every generation, one subject remains a source of both fascination and fear: death. Is it really the end? What happens afterward? Even believers will often wonder, “How good do I need to be to enter Heaven?” Before we can answer any questions about our eternal destination, however, we must first understand the significance of Christ’s rising from the dead. At a time when people are increasingly preoccupied with stories of "out-of-body" experiences and reincarnation, Paul’s teaching in 1 Corinthians 15 is unique and striking in its impact, providing the classical Christian discussion of death and resurrection. In this series, Alistair Begg explores the biblical answer to how we can face death with confidence rather than fear. In learning how best to die, we find the key to learning how to live well.

    Video: "The Law of God" by Alistair Begg

    What is the place of the Law of God in the life of a Christian? Does the Gospel message really replace the Ten Commandments with grace, as some believe? Surveying the Bible’s answers to these questions, Alistair Begg examines the Law’s functions and limitations. While following regulations neither justifies nor sanctifies us, God’s moral law still plays an important role for the believer, convicting us of sin and leading us to place our faith in Christ’s perfect righteousness.

    Video: "Children" by Alistair Begg

    Paul’s letter to the Ephesians conveys an overarching theme: believers are called to walk in light, love, and wisdom in every aspect of life—including family. God’s Word has established an order for relationships within the home that, when lived out, bears testimony to a confused culture about the difference Jesus makes. In this message, Alistair Begg investigates the Bible’s instructions about children, helping us understand how their nature shapes the roles and responsibilities of parents.

    Rock of Ages

    Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
    Let me hide myself in Thee;
    Let the water and the blood,
    From Thy riven side which flowed,
    Be of sin the double cure;
    Cleanse me from its guilt and pow'r.

    Video: "Marriage - God's Design" by Alistair Begg

    Marriage points to the great mystery of God’s love for His people. God has provided forgiveness and restoration for our past sins, and His grace enables us to live as He intends. Alistair Begg explains how this truth applies to the marriage relationship. When a couple adheres to God’s design for marriage, the love a husband has for his wife and the respect a wife has for her husband provide a glimpse of Christ’s love for His Church and the Church’s submission to the Savior.

    We count it a privilege to add our voices to the vast company giving thanks to God for the life and ministry of Billy Graham. His passion to see unbelieving people become the committed followers of the Lord Jesus was an example to us all.

    Alistair Begg Explains That Our Faith is Not in Vain

    Dear Friend,

    At the heart of the Christian faith is a real Savior who suffered and died for our sins at a real time in history, in a real place, so that we may be confident that our salvation is not based on cleverly devised myths, but on the testimony of eyewitnesses of His majesty (2 Peter 1:16).

    Jesus Christ: Divine King (6 of 7)

    Jesus often spoke about the kingdom of God, preaching and demonstrating that it had broken into the world in his coming. In his preaching he taught his disciples how to enter the kingdom and the kind of lifestyle to which this would lead, and through his miracles he gave visual, physical demonstration of the kingdom’s restoring and transforming power.

    Jesus Christ: Lamb on the Throne (7 of 7)

    In the Book of Revelation, we find John, its author, banished to the small island of Patmos because of his faithfulness to the gospel. As he addresses his readers in the book’s opening verses, he refers to himself as “your brother and partner in the tribulation”1 —an acknowledgment that the people he was writing to were believers who, much like him, were trying to make sense of their troubled lives.

Why?

    Jesus Christ: Personal Evangelist (3 of 7)

    When we look at the life of Jesus, we may wonder at the great variety of ways in which he interacted with others. He conversed with them. He broke bread with them. He confronted them. He healed them. He even attended parties with them. In fact, it is a testament to Jesus’ very humanity that his comings and goings among everyday people seem, in both their breadth and their depth, to so closely resemble our own.
