Hebrews (Program #15) – Christ as the Apostle Superior to Moses

Most Christians know Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God. Today we will see Jesus as the apostle sent by God. Why was He sent and what was He sent to do? This is the subject of our message today.

The early chapters in Hebrews present one comparison after another of Christ to the cherished items of the old covenant. And this comparison now brings us to Moses, the most revered of all the Old Testament figures. Once again our Christ is superior!

Matthew (Program #48) – The Pathway to Glory (6)

In the far north of Israel, far away from the religious capital of Jerusalem, the Lord Jesus posed the question of the ages to His disciples; who do men say that I am?  and then even more pertinent; who do you say that I am?   It was at this critical moment in the New Testament record that Peter made his monumental declaration “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God”.  Peter’s word testifies the inner revelation that only God can plan in a man’s heart.  But the revelation did not stop at this point.

We trust that if you stay with us today, your own perception of the great revelation will be very much enhanced before we are through.
