Then, he provides the practical tools and structures needed to lay a strong foundation for ministry.
Many pastors struggle to translate their theological beliefs into fruitful ministry in the places they are called to reach. It’s not enough to simply know what to believe (theology), or on the other hand, how to do ministry (methodology) - they need something in between. They need help thinking about ministry in a culture that no longer believes Christianity is a force for good, let alone the source of ultimate revealed truth in the person of Christ.
In the face of scorn and disbelief, Jesus Christ announced his kingdom. In the face of hatred and death, he demonstrated its power. In this 12-lecture series, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson explains how the Sermon on the Mount equips us to live a kingdom life in a fallen world. Dr. Ferguson highlights Christ's exhortations to live counter-culturally, to examine the deeper implications of God's law, and to rest in the knowledge of God as father for the cure of all our anxieties.
This presentation, recorded live before an audience at the 2002 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, discusses sexual violence and its consequences from the viewpoint of survivors. From their experience as therapists and teachers, Sr. Fran Ferder and Fr.

They see the profound and wondrous gift of sexuality as residing at the core of our being. Violations of that inner identity create profound pain and devastation.

Although Matthew may not be the first written Gospel, like Isaiah it is positioned first in its sequence of four Gospels. Opening with a 42-generation genealogy, Matthew reminds us of the linear nature of God’s plan, and Matthew forms a link—a swinging door—between the Old and New Testaments. Matthew is a Jew writing for a Jewish audience, and his Gospel provides our first perspective on the birth and public ministry of Jesus Christ.

After 40 years in the wilderness the Israelites begin their conquest of Canaan, the land God promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In the book of Joshua the Israelites cross the Jordan River, attacking Jericho—and we watch the walls come tumblin' down! By the end of Joshua the Israelites have subdued most of the "Promised Land" and it is allocated to the 12 tribes—yet, there are still significant pockets of resistance, especially among the Philistines on the coastal plain.
St. Paul is to the New Testament what Moses is to the Old Testament: as God gave the message of the Law through Moses, so he gave the message of Grace through Paul. In Acts 9: 15 Jesus said that St. Paul is "my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and to their kings and to the people of Israel." And that is precisely what Paul did. On three missionary journeys - in AD 46-48, 50-52, and 54-57 - Paul worked tirelessly to spread the gospel message throughout Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey), Macedonia and Greece, and to Rome itself.
The Hebrew Scriptures contain three major figures: the priest, the prophet, and the king. The priest stands between the people and God, and he speaks to God on behalf of the people; the prophet stands between God and the people, and he speaks to the people on behalf of God; and the king represents God in the affairs of the nation.
The "general epistles" include those New Testament canonical epistles and letters not attributed to St. Paul, but all written during the 1st generation of the Church by those closely associated with Jesus. They include Hebrews; James; 1 & 2 Peter; 1, 2 & 3 John and Jude.
In King David, the Real Life of the Man Who Ruled Israel, Jonathan Kirsch observes: At the heart of the Book of Samuel, where the story of David is first told, we find a work of genius that anticipates the romantic lyricism and tragic grandeur of Shakespeare, the political wile of Machiavelli, and the modern psychological insight of Freud. And, just as much as Shakespeare or Machiavelli or Freud, the frank depiction of David in the pages of the Bible has defined what it means to be a human being: King David is "a symbol of the complexity and ambiguity of human experience itself."
Jeremiah prophesized that the Babylonian captivity would last 70 years, and indeed it does: from the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Solomon's temple in 586 BC to the rebuilding and dedication of the second temple in 516 BC. When Cyrus the Great, King of Persia, conquers Babylon, he allows not only the Jews, but all the people taken captive by Assyria and Babylon, to return home in 539 BC and rebuild their cities, temples, and infrastructures.
With the book of Esther, we end the linear narrative of the Hebrew Scriptures. And if we can draw one lesson from Genesis through Esther, it is this: "If we do what God says, all will go well; if we don't, it won't." And then we turn the page to Job. Job does everything God wants, and his life is a disaster! As we know from our own experience: bad things often happen to good people, even when they are fully aligned with God. So what gives? Job explores this paradox, calling into question the fundamental lessons we learn in the first 700 pages of Scripture.
The Minor Prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures are not "minor" because they are less important than the "major" prophets, but because they are shorter in length: Isaiah is 66 chapters; Obadiah is one. Nevertheless, the Minor Prophets are dazzling works that penetrate deeply into Israel's relationship with God, and by inference into our own relationship with God.
Logos Bible Study presents another masterful presentation by Dr. Bill Creasy of how a divided kingdom will surely fall. From Solomon's reign to the prophetic call of Elijah, 1 Kings tells the story of the collapse of David's united monarchy into a nearly 100-year civil war and the fracture of a nation into two kingdoms: Israel and Judah. 2 Kings continues the story, chronicling Assyria's conquest of Israel in 721 BC and Babylon's conquest of Judah in 586 BC, ending with all Israel taken captive to Babylon.
