2018 Easter Video: "Jesus in 3D" by Alistair Begg

    When we think of a king, we don’t usually picture a man riding on a donkey, hanging on a cross, or lying in a tomb. Each represents a scene from Jesus’ life, however, and Alistair Begg describes how they fulfilled prophecy and led to redemption from sin for all who believe. Even in His death and resurrection, the responses to Jesus were mixed, and it is the same today. Unless God softens our hearts to see our sin and need of a Savior, we will only view Jesus as an unwelcome intruder.

    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.

    Christ Has Risen! He Has Risen, Indeed! (7 of 7)

    The circumstances surrounding Jesus' resurrection were hardly ordinary--nor should we expect them to be! After all, the Creator of the universe had just triumphed over sin and death. Can we really be surprised that he made an unforgettable impression? Listen in as Alistair Begg unpacks the implications of God's incredible invitation to new life through his Son.

    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.
