1. The First Testimony Concerning Jesus, Part 1 (John 1:19-37) John MacArthur

    28:30

    from John MacArthur / Added

    http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-5 As we come to the nineteenth verse of the gospel of John, the nineteenth verse of the gospel John--that's chapter 1, verse 19--we come to the historical section of the book. Verses 1 to 18 is theological, presents the nature of Christ predominantly as God with God, that is to say, He is God and yet He is distinct from God the Father--He is the Creator; He is the Word, that is He is the expression of God; He is the Life; He is the source of all that lives; He is the Light, He is the shining of the nature of God into the darkness of this world. All of that has been laid out. Verse 14, the Word, the eternal Son of God became flesh, dwelt among us. So John has introduced us to the nature of Christ in theological terms, and that is an unparalled portion of Holy Scripture. So if you missed any of those messages, you do well to listen to them and find good source material on the opening 18 verses, because the reading of that would be of great benefit and blessing to you....

      http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-56 Open your Bible, if you will, to the tenth chapter of John’s gospel. When we teach people how to preach, we basically, and we’ve been doing it all week. Steve Lawson is here as professor of preaching, and we’ve had, I don’t know, up to 100 young men now arriving at the seminary. We’re trying to launch them into expository preaching, and it’s been going on pretty intensely, as well as some of our second year students, all week long. Just a wonderful, wonderful opportunity for us. But when we teach them how to preach, ideally, you’d take a portion of Scripture, and you develop a message out of that portion of Scripture, and you put a beginning, and an ending, and a middle, and it’s all self-contained....

        http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-55 Turn to the tenth chapter of the gospel of John. John chapter 10. It’s very interesting to be going through the Book of John in the morning and Acts at night because in the account of the early chapters of Acts, Peter is the preacher. And with the gospel of John, John is the writer. And of course, they were buddies. They are together in the early chapters of Acts, so it’s a special treat to be hearing from John as he finally gets to say something many, many, many years after Peter preached on Pentecost, and how parallel the writing of John concerning the person of Christ and the preaching of Peter concerning the person of Christ are. So we’re sort of doubling down on Peter and John in these days, and presenting the glories of the Savior that they loved and proclaimed....

          http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-29 We’re going to look at John 5 and there’s enough left in John 5 to occupy us for a few weeks and then later on we’ll come back and go into that just monumental sixth chapter of John which starts with the famous feeding of the five thousand men, plus women and children, and continue our study in John’s gospel But for now we want to wrap up this very powerful fifth chapter. And you know from what I’ve been telling you that starting in verse 17 and running all the way to the end, verse 47, this is one long discourse in which Jesus declares His deity. This is the whole point of this section, and frankly the whole point of the gospel of John, these are written, John says, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that by believing you might have life in His name. That’s John’s own statement of why he wrote the gospel under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit....

            http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-6 The gospel of John--we're in chapter 1, working our way through this wonderful presentation of Christ, remembering that John's purpose is very simple. His purpose, which is articulated at the end of the book, is to present the evidences, the testimony, the proof that that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, so that you might believe and believing have eternal life in His name. His goal, as I said before, first of all polemic, to prove that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God; and then evangelistic, so that you in believing that may have the eternal life that comes with that faith. That's the whole point of the gospel of John. It is evidences of the deity of Jesus Christ, evidences of the messiahship of Christ, evidence that He is the Savior, the only Savior, and that those who believe in Him have forgiveness and eternal life. So the gospel of John is in the opening eighteen verses a declaration of the deity of Christ. And then starting in verse 19, the evidences proving that declaration to be true. John opens the gospel, as you remember, speaking of the Lord Jesus as the Word and identifying Him as with God and God Himself. He is both God and with God, which is a Trinitarian understanding. He is fully God, and yet He is with God. The members of the Trinity are fully God and yet separate persons. He introduces Him not only as the Word, that is the truth that emanates from deity, but as the life, the very life source of all that lives, and then as light, and that is to say He is God penetrating the darkness of a fallen world....

                http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/44-15 Tonight, we come to the third chapter of the Book of Acts, and I rarely make personal references when teaching the Bible because there’s nothing in the Bible about me. So, I can’t justify talking about myself when I’m never the subject. But, just to introduce our study for tonight, a little biographical note. It was some months ago that I received a letter from a faculty member of a large Christian institution in America who said that my anti-Semitism is well-known, accusing me of being anti-Jewish. And then, in this particular letter, which I did not read, but which was described to me, he went on to try to expose what he saw in me and apparently others see in me as anti-Semitism....

                  http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-54 Open your Bible to the tenth chapter of the gospel of John. It doesn’t seem very long ago we began our study of the gospel of John. And yet, it’s been a while. These things kind of become years before we don’t even realize it. But we find ourselves in the tenth chapter, and this is really a significant chapter. If you just do the math, there are 21 chapters in the gospel of John, and this is chapter 10, and we’ve already gone through the first 21 verses. So, we’re approaching halfway through the gospel of John. That’s true of the text of the gospel of John. However, in the history of Jesus, we’re three months from the end. Because the last half of the gospel of John is devoted to events that take place for the most part in the last week of His life....

                    http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/44-14 We are, on Sunday nights, taking a look at the Book of Acts, the history of the early church, if you will, the acts of Christ through the Holy Spirit as He finishes His work through the apostles, proclaiming the gospel and establishing His church. We find ourselves in chapter 3, so if you will, turn in your Bible to chapter 3, and I want us to take a look at verses 1 to 11. I’m always challenged to go through an entire passage like this, as you well know, but for the sake of getting the whole picture in these wonderful passages, we’re doing our best to compress them....

                      http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-53 Turn in our Bibles to the tenth chapter of John. And this really wonderful, and rich, and precious portion of Scripture in which our Lord identifies Himself as the Good Shepherd who cares for His sheep. That particular metaphor, that simile, that word picture as it’s called in verse 6 maybe needs a bit of an explanation as to context so that you know why it happened here. There’s nothing sort of isolated in the ministry of Jesus. Everything of course had a context, a historical context. I think many people read the Bible as some kind of a spiritual book, as if it were detached from history, and events, and people, and consequences, and sequences. But this is all history. All that we read in the gospels in terms of doctrine, and theology, and our Lord’s great discourses were, in a moment and an event, a strategic point where this is what spoke to that moment, and what spoke to that crucial hour. That’s essentially true of this....
