Jew and Gentile
A Sermon on Ephesians 2:11
One in Christ
Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— (ESV)
Political debates, class warfare, as well as ethnic and religious conflict, seem to dominate the media’s attention. What could an ancient text like Paul’s letter to the Ephesians say to such matters? What is here for the people of God? Dr. Marytn Lloyd-Jones walks us through an ancient conflict of Jew and Gentile which mirrors all conflicts - both past and present. While unregenerate man will certainly reject Paul’s diagnosis of divisions and strifes between nations, classes, and the sexes, the Christian church cannot. In adhering to the Apostolic message, the church will not only be in a position to accurately diagnosis the problem, but by the grace of God, it will see the gospel transform prideful and selfish hearts. This is the key to true reconciliation and unity between diverse people. Listen as Lloyd-Jones diagnoses the cause of divisions that continue to haunt the human race. Consider the vanity with which the world seeks to remove strife and conflict without considering the condition of the human heart. Hear how the gospel alone is the cure to the chaos surrounding our world.
