Christ the King
Christians tend to only think of the atonement of Christ's death for sin. However, as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones reminds us in this sermon, there are many aspects of God’s creation which are affected by the death of Christ. We must not think forgiveness of sin is the only benefit from the atonement. Even the Lord Jesus Christ himself has been affected by his work on the cross. What are we to make of these things? Lloyd-Jones surveys the Scripture in order to show how common benefits or common grace comes to humanity as a consequence of the Lord Jesus Christ’s death. Listen as he preaches on the blessings unbelievers and angels receive as a result of the atoning work of Christ. Hear as Lloyd-Jones considers the special and new glory the Lord Jesus Christ receives in the incarnation. It is only as a result of his obedient death on the cross that he receives this peculiar glory. Finally, as we witness the crucifixion we learn about Christ’s mediatorial kingship and what it means for the church as he rules and reigns over her.
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.
