Beginning in early March of 2014 I launched a verse-by-verse series of sermons on the Epistle to the Hebrews. I concluded the series in May of 2015. There were a total of 47 sermons on the book. My standard practice here at Bridgeway is to provide our people with a written manuscript of each sermon. All 47 of these sermon manuscripts on Hebrews are now available on my website.

I’ve always been fascinated by who remained, following the crucifixion of Jesus, to attend to his body and provide for his burial (see Mark 15:42-47). Contrary to what most of us would have expected, it wasn’t Peter or John or James or any of the disciples.

That’s quite a claim in the title. I’m certain that others who have read far more of Augustine than I would beg to differ. Needless to say, we all have our favorite texts, those theologically rich and experientially captivating statements for which Augustine is justly famous. But I want to mention mine, which, as you probably have guessed, is found in his Confessions. Continue reading . . .  That’s quite a claim in the title. I’m certai...Read More

Unbelievers scoff at the suggestion that angels are real. For them, angels are a holdover from the medieval mindset that debated endlessly about how many of them could dance on the head of a pin! But for the Christian who takes the Bible seriously, angels are an essential part of God’s universe and play a crucial role in the lives of believers. Here are ten things we need to keep in mind regarding who they are and what they do. Continue reading . . . Unbelievers s...Read More
