Our Great High Priest
A Sermon on John 1:16
16For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Everyone seems to accept the phrase “Jesus loves you,” 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 sermon on John 1:16 concerning our great high priest, Jesus the Christ. The Father is the one who sent 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. Anyone who doubts that their sins can actually be wiped clean should look no further than the sacrifice of Christ and His perfect fulfilment of the office of high priest. His perfect sacrifice is more than sufficient to be the perfect plea before God.
The Book of John
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.
