In this classic sermon by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, he exposits Hebrews 13:11-12 and the effect of the meaning of the cross. The world believes that the cross was not historical or possible. Yet, directing our attention the epistle and the Bible, Dr. Lloyd-Jones reminds us that the Calvary was not an accident or tragedy – it was a decisive act of God and the means to save and bring His people back to His presence. The cross also fulfills all the Old Testament prophecies and promises.
