Our Great High Priest
A Sermon on John 1:16Read more
Jesus loves you. Everyone seems to accept this phrase, but far fewer people are willing to accept the fact that God the Father loves them. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones addresses this fallacy and others in his address on John 1:16 concerning our High Priest, Jesus the Christ. God the Father has sent His Son! He is the one who sends the Son to save His people. Dr. Lloyd-Jones spends much of this sermon discussing the depth and height of Christ’s ability to save. Moreover, he elaborates how Christ can be a priest after the order of Melchizedek, despite the Old Testament law that required priests from the tribe of Levi. Friend, do you doubt that your sins can actually be wiped clean from the slate of your life? Look no further than the sacrifice of Christ and His perfect fulfilment of the office of High Priest. His perfect sacrifice is more than capable to be your perfect plea before God. Friend, there is no plea of yours that is loud enough, nor work good enough to appease our Holy God; but the perfect, sinless life and death of Christ is enough. Listen as Dr. Lloyd-Jones speaks hope to the any who are in Christ.

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.
