1. The Essentials of Handling God’s Word, Part 2

    44:11

    from John MacArthur / Added

    Selected Scriptures http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/90-469 The Bible is the most powerful book in existence. It can tear you to pieces. It has the power to do that, Hebrews 4:12, “For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, both joints and marrow, and it able to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.” It cuts to the core; it can tear you apart. It can also put you back together again. First Peter 1:23, “We are begotten again by the Word of truth.” It can make you holy. Jesus said, “Sanctify them,” praying to the Father, “by Thy truth. Thy Word is truth.” The Word of God can give you the greatest joy. “These things are written,” says the apostle John, “that your joy may be full.”...

      Selected Scriptures http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/80-419 I want to encourage you all this morning. I want to kind of put you in a biblical context. We’re committed to the Scriptures, to the Word of God; and I want to talk from the Bible, as we always do, and perhaps give you a perspective on what you do that maybe you haven’t had before. But we have to start with the reality, and that reality is this: the Bible is unmistakably clear about human nature. There is no question; all people are sinners. They’re not all as bad as they could be; they’re not as bad as each other; they’re all sinners. There is not a single exception according to Scripture. Every person is born in sin. Sin nature is passed down from its parents. It goes all the way back to Adam and Eve. When Adam and Eve fell, their disposition changed. And then everything that’s come from Adam and Eve, every human that’s ever been born in the history of the world, has been born a sinner, passed down from the original parents...

              http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/44-26/ Acts 7:18–53 We have been working through the Book of Acts, and for good intent, so that we might understand the nature of the church from its very outset, its very foundation. We find ourselves in moving through the early history of the church and the foundations that are laid in chapter 7 of the Book of Acts. And in chapter 7, there is one very significant event. It is the first martyrdom of a Christian. The church, by the time we get to this chapter, has had a significant impact on the city of Jerusalem. In fact, in chapter 5 verse 28, the Sanhedrin, the very council before whom Stephen stands, meets, and the high priest is there. And these are the words of the high priest to the apostles: “We gave you strict orders not to continue teaching in this name.” The name of Jesus. “And yet, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.”...

                http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-70 John 13:31-38 You can open your Bible to John 13. We have come to a very unique section in all of the New Testament. The gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – give us a history of the life of our Lord, from His birth, to His ascension and coronation in heaven. They tell the story. Most of the texts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are narrative texts. Along the way, of course, some sermons that He preached. But when we come to John 13 through 17, we come to a text that is unique because that entire sweeping section of John’s gospel all takes place on one night. One night. It is Thursday night of Passion Week. It is the night in which our Lord met with His disciples and celebrated the Passover, and then He transformed it into the Lord’s Supper. It is the night in which Judas betrayed Him and which He went to the garden and prayed and was arrested and put through some mock trials. It is the night before He is crucified.

                  51:25

                  from John MacArthur / Added

                  http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-69/ John 13:18–30 Let’s open the Word of God now to the 13th chapter of the gospel of John. John chapter 13. This may be a kind of last for me in one sense because the text that we’re looking at, John 13:18 to 30 is about Judas Iscariot. When I say it’s the last, I can’t foresee in the future, but it’s unlikely that we’ll ever go through the account of Judas again. I’ve done it in going through the gospel of Matthew, the gospel of Mark, the gospel of Luke, twice through the gospel of John. And when we get past this section here, Judas will have disappeared into the past as far as preaching from this pulpit is concerned. I have been to Bible conferences and seminars all over the planet for, obviously, many, many, many years. I’ve never heard anybody preach on Judas at a Bible conference or any other isolated special event. He’s not the subject that people want to deal with. So, it’s not likely that anybody would ask me to come somewhere and preach on Judas. So, this may be a farewell to the textual accounts of Judas. That is enough for me. I am satisfied with that, not only having preached on it through the preaching of these gospels, but then having gone back. Of course, preparing to preach means many more hours of studying this. Even this week, many hours of studying Judas to bring you one hour of this text. And not only the preparation, having studied his life as intently as I have, then going back and writing commentaries on the same thing, he has occupied a huge, huge place in my life...

                    53:31

                    from John MacArthur / Added

                    http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/44-23 Acts 6:1–7 The early church had some serious complexity because it grew so rapidly. And because with that growth, there needed to be an effective and efficient way to minister to the people and to establish an effective witness in and around Jerusalem. I understand that the church is an organism. It is the only spiritual organism in the world. You do need to understand that. Everything else is an organization. It is that simply means external. Every false religion is an organization orchestrated by men and demons. Every human institution, non-religious, is a structure made by men. It is an external organization. It is a human organization. There’s only one spiritual organism, one work of God in the world, and that is the church. The only organization, the only organism that God has established is the church. It is the living organism of people connected to the life of God through union with Jesus Christ. It is an organism. We share common eternal life. Christ lives in us, and there are people who think that because of that reality of an organism, we need to run from being organized. We need to run from structure and everything needs to be somewhat free-flowing...
