The Lamb of God

The Lamb of God Text: John 1:29 One of the things that I was absolutely delighted about when I first arrived here was that the text over the doorway of this church was John 1:29. There are many texts that our churches use for that kind of thing; We preach Christ crucified, justified by his blood, etc. But to me to have a text that calls every saint and sinner to look to…

The Crucifixion of Christ

The Crucifixion of Christ Text: John 19:16-37 An article published this morning reported on the crucifixion re-enactment in the Philippines. “Screaming in pain, Filipino devotees had themselves nailed to wooden crosses to mimic the suffering of Jesus Christ on Good Friday in Asia’s largest Roman Catholic nation. Church leaders have spoken against the annual practice…

The Testimony of the Voice

The Testimony of the Voice Text: John 1:19-28 As we step into the historical section of this gospel, we leave behind one of the most glorious sections of all the Bible. I know I didn’t do it justice, but I trust the Lord has strengthened in your mind the basic themes and truths that are important with regard to to person of the Lord Jesus Christ as the only Saviour of…

The Uniqueness of Christ

The Uniqueness of Christ Text: John 1:15-18 We’re now approaching the end of John’s prologue to his gospel. Next week we will commence the narrative of the life and times of Jesus Christ from John’s perspective, but in these eighteen verses John speaks theologically rather narratively. He is making clear in this opening prologue that Jesus is God in human flesh. That He…

Vital Truths of a Viable Saviour

Vital Truths of a Viable Saviour Text: John 1:14 The title ‘The Word’ is exclusively used by the Apostle John to refer to the Son of God. John, 1 John & Revelation. We noted that John begins deliberately connecting his thoughts with the first lines of Genesis, and He shows us that when it states ‘and God said’, John wants us to know that right there we have the…

When God Interjects

When God Interjects Text: John 1:12-13 The great distinction in our world is not wealth, not skin colour, nor nationality… the great division in humanity is caused by the gospel of Jesus Christ. And this ought not to surprise us in light of what John has been declaring about the Son of God. You see, the difference in wealth is degrees. All have money, it’s just the…

The Rejection of the Light

The Rejection of the Light Text: John 1:9-11 When we think of light, we usually think of it as either dark, or light, or some degree in between. For us, light is on and off, it is present or it is absent. We are so familiar with it we think of it in very simplistic terms, but it’s far from simple. Light is energy. A luminous, radiant energy, moving at a speed of 186,282…

The Witness of the Light

The Witness of the Light Text: John 1:6-9 Let me once again remind you that the writer of this gospel, the beloved disciple John, is making a case for the identity of Christ, more so than the historicity of Christ. It’s not just the observations of a historian, he is trying to persuade us to believe in the Son of God. So his opening lines are essentially answering the…

The Supremacy of Christ as the Word

The Supremacy of Christ as the Word Text: John 1:1-3 As we step into a study through the Gospel of John, I must say it is with a little fear. On the one hand, no other book in the Bible so effectively presents the history of the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. But at the same time, no other book so profoundly presents the theology person of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is…
