The Eternal Son of God
A Sermon on Colossians 1:18
And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. (ESV)
Jesus Christ is pre-eminent in all things; unlike in the cults; God has chosen to be glorified through Christ; the mystery of the first Christmas; baby Jesus is 'the image of God' - this expression defined; not just likeness; Jesus is uncreated and eternal; all things were created in and through Jesus; he holds them together; the first man to keep the Law; the firstborn from the dead; he did it alone; give Christ all pre-eminence.
About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
