Therefore Jesus ... Suffered
A Sermon on Hebrews 13:11-12
11For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the Holy Place by the high priest as an offering for sin are burned outside the camp. 12Therefore Jesus also suffered outside the gate, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood.
11For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. 12Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
In this sermon on Hebrews 13:11–12 titled “Therefore Jesus…Suffered,” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones focuses on the meaning of the cross. The world believes that the cross was not historical or possible. Dr. Lloyd-Jones directs the listener’s attention to this epistle and the entire Bible, reminding listeners that Calvary was not an accident or tragedy but 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.
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.
