Passage: 1 Chronicles 15:1-16 & Genesis 14
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 11 mins 32 secs
Soft music, dim candle lighting, and fog machines. Is that what we need in order to worship God? Listen to this lesson to learn that worship must come from our mental attitude and be an appreciation for God as the Creator of the universe and the provider of all we have. See the elements of Abraham’s worship which included ritual, the giving of thanks, and burial. Learn about Melchizedec and what it means when the Bible says Abraham offered tithes to him. Find out that as we come to learn more about God’s greatness we can understand more fully our own sinfulness.

Passage: Genesis 12-17
Series: God's Plan for the Ages - Dispensations (2014)
Duration: 52 mins 10 secs

From the shadowy pages of ancient history comes a man from a family of moon worshipers who believed in the one true God. Listen to this lesson to learn how God made a covenant with him that promised him a specific land, many descendants, and that he would be a blessing to all peoples. See how Abraham never owned the land during his lifetime but that this unconditional, irreversible promise will be fulfilled in the future. Realize that when you see the Jewish nation today it reveals how God is still working out His plans to bless mankind through Abraham.

Please note that the beginning of this video is incorrectly labeled as Lesson #8.

Series: 2014 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 41 mins 56 secs
The distinction between Israel and the church is the theological sine qua non of Dispensationalism. Yet in recent Progressive Dispensational writings, this distinction has become less clear. This is because they claim that the church is fulfilling promises made to Israel or at least they have argued for partial fulfillment. This claim is problematic for two reasons. First, the claim is not clear. Does it mean that a promise is fulfilled in part? The Davidic covenant is fulfilled in part since Jesus was born and anointed the Davidic heir. But neither the leaders accepted Jesus’ claim to be king at the triumphal entry nor was he enthroned on the Davidic throne by Israel (Deut. 17:15). Thus the promised Davidic heir came but neither the kingdom nor the throne appeared. The other possibility is that there is partial fulfillment. But was Jesus partially the Davidic heir? Was Jesus partially enthroned? This seems unlikely. So neither option is a valid alternative of fulfillment.

Passage: Romans 9:6-13 & Malachi 1:1-4
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 6 mins 23 secs
If God ever backed off His promises to the Jews how could Christians trust Him? Listen to this lesson to see how God, in His Sovereignty, chooses individuals and nations to fulfill His purposes but doesn't choose who will be saved. Find out that "love and hate" in Hebrew expresses "love and love less." Learn the difference between the children of the promise and the children of the seed.

Passage: Romans 9:6-13
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 6 secs
Can we count on God to keep His promises? Listen to this lesson to learn how the Apostle Paul wrestles with this question concerning God's promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Find out what it means to be Jewish and how those long lists of generations in the Bible are not there to put us to sleep. Watch out for "wolves in sheep's clothing" who say they are our spiritual teachers but don't stick to Bible texts.

Passage: Acts 13:13-38
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 3 secs
Scripture has seen many translations. The study of the origins of these translations is key to understanding their accuracy related to the inspired text. Here Paul presents Jesus to a Jewish audience, weaving Old Testament promises through his message which are fulfilled in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Could a fuzzy translation compromise the fact that these verses are meant to be Messianic? Take a careful look at the clarity of promise in these Messianic passages. Develop the meaning of begotten, the shared natures of God and His Son, the timing of the Messiah’s reign on earth and the imagery in these passages which present Jesus as Messiah and clearly show His relationship to the Father.

Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 3 mins 25 secs
As we wrap up Paul's explanation of justification, we also take a look at what he had to say in Philippians 3. Are we made internally righteous? Does justification change us? This lesson reiterates what we have been studying in Romans 4 - that justification is always apart from works and is through faith alone.

Passage: Romans 4:13-25 & Psalm 32:1-2
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 49 secs
This lesson on justification focuses on Abraham's 14 tests of faith. Was this testing the cause or the result of justification? As we study the doctrine of Justification, we learn that justification is always apart from works and is through faith alone.

This lesson also includes Genesis 15:6.
