The Ascension of Christ
October 12, 2015 •
This week on Theology on the Go, Dr. Jonathan Master is joined by Dr. Gerrit Dawson, who serves as Senior Minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Dr. Dawson has written several books, including Jesus Ascended: The Meaning of Christ's Continuing Incarnation. On this installment of Theology on the Go, Dr. Dawson talks with Jonathan about the importance of an often neglected segment of the History of Salvation, the ascension of Jesus Christ.
Just for listening, the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals would like to give you a free resource. An MP3 of Dr. James M. Boice's sermon entitled "I Ascend to My Father" is free to download. Go to ReformedResources.org to download your free MP3!
The importance of Luther to the Christian faith cannot be overstated. For many today, he is probably a figure who looks larger as a symbol of defiance or a heroic rebel against a corrupt church and decadent theology. There is much truth in such images. His stand at the Diet of Worms was a remarkable act of courageous defiance. And his theology represented nothing less than a self-conscious attempt to overthrow the medieval thought which he had been taught and replace it with a comprehensive understanding of God and the gospel as refracted the incarnate and crucified Christ.
In response to the Trinity debate that occured in 2016, Liam Goligher preached a series of sermons on the Trinity from Hebrews 1. This doctrine is not easy to understand or to preach. Yet the Trinity is the most foundational of all Christian beliefs, because it speaks of the God we worship as he revealed himself to finite minds.
These sermons are now available on CD and MP3 at ReformedResources.org thanks to a partnership between the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and Tenth Presbyterian Church. Listening to them several times, one still finds new angles, new insights into the shape of this battle; new understandings of the implications for every aspect of our faith.
The Alliance is a coalition of pastors, scholars, and churchmen who hold the historic creeds and confessions of the Reformed faith and who proclaim biblical doctrine in order to foster a Reformed awakening in today's Church.
