The Way, the Truth, & the Life- podcast

A Broadcast with R.C. Sproul

Our culture tells us that there are many ways into heaven. But Jesus says there’s only one way—and He is it. Today, R.C. Sproul contrasts the exclusivity of Christianity with pluralism.

God has prepared a place of sanctuary and safety for His people—a place into which there is only one entrance. Today, R.C. Sproul establishes a controversial truth: Jesus Christ is the only way to God.

The Bread of Life

A Broadcast with R.C. Sproul

Many people are in the middle of an identity crisis—not only about who they are, but about who Jesus is. Today, R.C. Sproul begins to unpack what Christ said about Himself and how His words relate to us today.

Jesus Christ as Our Great High Priest

The Occasion for Our Great High Priest

1. The problem. The problem was that God cannot personally relate to our human struggles. You say, but wait a minute preacher, God knows all things. Yes, He does. He knows when we are going through what we are going through.

But He can’t personally relate to our human struggles. In other words, God doesn’t/cannot worry; He doesn’t/cannot hunger; He does not/cannot feel human pain; He doesn’t/cannot know defeat; etc.

2. The solution. The only way God could personally experience the human experience is to come down in human flesh and live as a human being and not as God. That’s what took place on that first Christmas Day when Christ was born and dwelt among us.

Consequently, “We have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. 4:15).

Jesus Rises from the Grave

Matthew 28:1-15

Matthew’s account of the events that day, the day of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, varies from that of Mark and Luke, and while we can discuss that some other time, I would point out that Matthew’s account carries forward His emphasis throughout the narrative of both Kingdom and the messianic mission of Jesus; in fact, these two themes are virtually inseparable: Jesus’ messianic mission was to establish His kingdom, which is not of this world. No, I haven’t forgotten that Jesus came to die on the cross for the redemption of Mankind; rather I am asserting that He did so in order to establish the Kingdom as a present reality.

Early on the first day of the week, which is the day after the Sabbath (Sunday), the women come to see the tomb. Unlike Mark and Luke, Matthew doesn’t get into the exact purpose for this. They arrive and then God springs into action again: There is a violent earthquake, as the angel of the Lord comes down and rolls the stone away from the tomb, and sits down on it and speaks to the women.

A Hymn That Challenges All Hymns

Begin by reading this amazing passage in Philippians 2:6-11, considered by many to be an early Christian hymn.

Phil. 2:6    Though he was in the form of God,
he did not consider being equal with God something to exploit.

7 But he emptied himself
by taking the form of a slave
and by becoming like human beings.

When he found himself in the form of a human,
8 he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross.

9 Therefore, God highly honored him
and gave him a name above all names,

10 so that at the name of Jesus everyone
in heaven, on earth, and under the earth might bow

11 and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
