Video: “The Incomparable Christ — Part Four” by Alistair Begg

    Since the beginning, man has been rebellious. By nature, instead of trusting God’s wisdom and goodness, we assert our right to rule over our own lives. By grace, though, God established Jesus as the ultimate King to subdue us to Himself, to defend and keep us, and to conquer our enemies. Alistair Begg teaches that by submitting to His reign, ordinary people like us are welcomed into an eternal community where harmony and intimacy will be restored. Will we accept God’s invitation?

    Video: “The Incomparable Christ — Part Three” by Alistair Begg

    By His death, Jesus became the ultimate scapegoat to bear all sin, the ultimate sacrifice to endure God’s wrath, and the ultimate High Priest to secure eternal forgiveness. Christ’s finished work—once for all, for all time—ensured salvation for believers. As our Priest, though, He also continues to intercede for us before God. Turning our focus from self-effort to Jesus, Alistair Begg explains how the cross deals with our failures, fears, and final judgment.

    Video: “The Incomparable Christ — Part Two” by Alistair Begg

    As the ordained mediator between God and man, Jesus fulfills the three offices of Prophet, Priest, and King. Focusing on Christ’s prophetic role, Alistair Begg explains its significance for personal faith, biblical preaching, and everyday evangelism. By nature, we reject God and His salvation. Jesus alone can open our hearts and minds so that we truly understand God’s Word. Only then can we confidently, courageously, and compassionately convey the Gospel to a lost, darkened world.

    God’s inscrutability doesn’t imply that faith is a leap in the dark. Rather, we ought to consider the evidence of Scripture with reasoned trust. Although by nature we tend to suppress the truth, our minds are indispensable, teaches Alistair Begg. Through faith, God opens our hearts and minds to consider all that He reveals and points us toward Jesus, our incomparable Savior, Shepherd, and Friend.

    Video: “Theological Realism” by Alistair Begg

    Many experts claim to have the answers to life’s most difficult questions. God’s Word, however, teaches that we are limited in our understanding and that God’s ways are inscrutable. Indeed, the writer of Ecclesiastes observed that “all is vanity.” But we are not to grow bitter and sullen. Instead, Alistair Begg encourages us to heed Scripture’s advice, taking joy in life’s simple pleasures and applying our hearts to know wisdom as it’s been revealed by God.

    Video: “Singing in the Pain” by Alistair Begg

    As God’s mouthpiece, Habakkuk declared God’s word to Israel, who were in rebellion. Yet even he was not prepared for God to use a foreign nation to execute judgment on His people. While he questioned God’s purposes, the prophet also listened to God’s response: that the righteous will live by faith. As Alistair Begg explains, the Lord works salvation for His people through Christ, and one day the earth will be filled with His glory. In this we can greatly rejoice!

    Video: "Life after Lockdown" by Alistair Begg

    Following Jesus’ crucifixion, His disciples hid behind locked doors for fear of reprisal from the Jews. A sense of lostness had settled over them—a darkness that could not be dispelled by false hope. But Jesus did not remain in the grave! He appeared in His resurrected body, proclaiming peace to His disciples. As Alistair Begg explains, our hope is not rooted in an idea but in a risen Savior. It is this truth that enables us to proclaim the way of forgiveness to all who will believe.

    Video: "Grace—Faith—Jesus" by Alistair Begg

    Burdened by his works-based religion, Martin Luther knew no peace until God’s Spirit revealed the Gospel’s message of grace. At his conversion, Luther acknowledged that salvation is not based on merit; rather, it comes by grace alone, through faith alone, and in Christ alone. In this Reformation Sunday sermon, Alistair Begg highlights the grace and love of God, who works to call sinners to Himself. Whether we are weighed down by failure or enslaved to pride, we can find forgiveness at the cross of Jesus.

    Video: "King on the Run" by Alistair Begg

    Is it permissible to lie when telling the truth could lead to tragedy? On the run from Saul, David lied to Ahimelech about not being alone. The priest then helped the fugitive by giving him holy bread. How did Ahimelech decide he could break ceremonial law and share the bread reserved for priests? Alistair Begg examines this strange episode in David’s life, whose circumstances—despite his decisions—point forward to the greater King, Jesus.

    Video: "Interpreting the Bible" by Alistair Begg

    How did David, the faith-filled hero who defeated Goliath, become a fearful fugitive relying on lies and deception? Before we approach difficult passages like 1 Samuel 21, we need to understand how to faithfully study God’s Word. Walking us through a list of proper Bible study habits, Alistair Begg reminds us to focus on the Bible’s main purpose and to allow Scripture to frame our interpretation. Only then can we make sense of David’s behavior while he was on the run.
