Sermons on John (Page 3)

If I Do Not Wash You, You Have No Share with Me

John 13:1-11 – The disciples were shocked that Jesus would stoop so low to wash their feet, but Jesus said it was necessary. Look with us as we uncover the depth of this living parable and learn what it means to trust the sin bearer who took our shame. (NOTE: Audio quality is very bad due to technical challenges, but the sermon…

God’s Glory in Christ’s Death on the Cross

John 12:27-50 – Here we come to the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry, prior to his crucifixion. In his final words to the world he came to save, he tells us the purpose for which he came. That purpose is for God’s name to be glorified. John 12:27-28 27 “Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from…

The Coming Glory

John 12:20-26 – Here in John 12, against the backdrop of this historical drama which has played out over time, the anticipation of the Messiah ought to be palpable. There ought to be a buzz in the air. Jesus Christ, the seed of the woman foretold from the beginning of history is here. He has come to God’s people. He is the…

Predestination in John’s Gospel

John 10:22-30 – One of the most compelling and clear areas in scripture where the doctrine of predestination is taught is the Gospel of John. Jesus demonstrates that belief in Him is tied to belonging to Hm from eternity past. In this sermon, we first look at the context which calls our attention to national Judaism, the antithesis of the gospel. Against…

The Authentic Shepherd

John 10:1-21 – In contrast to the Pharisees who have not fulfilled their role as shepherds for the Jews, Jesus declares himself to be the true shepherd who calls his sheep, saves them to abundant life, and seals all of this with his blood. As one of his sheep, you can follow the Authentic Shepherd through his voice in the Bible, the…

I Was Blind But Now I See, Part II

John 9:13-41 – We revisit the blind man who was healed by Jesus and consider the response to Christ’s work. In this second of two parts, we discover that the truth about Jesus presses men to react and forces a confrontation with truth. At such a turning point, there is only belief and unbelief. We look at the Pharisees and their domineering…

I Was Blind But Now I See, Part I

John 9:1-12 – The story of the blind man who was healed is a powerful living parable that teaches us about the work of Christ is in response to our helpless condition. We look at this work in detail in part one of two sermons that will consider the sign Jesus worked, the response it provoked, and the greater implications for us…

True Disciples Abide in the Word

John 8:31-59 – Though the Jewish leadership and many of their followers considered themselves heirs of God and sons of Abraham, Jesus declared them to be slaves, not sons. The inheritance is for the true children of the Father, and true children abide in God’s Word. In this sermon we are challenged to live as those who are freemen and heirs; who…

Jesus is the Light of the World!

John 8:12-30 – In our text today, Jesus teaches those in the temple that he is the light of the world. This is the second of the metaphorical “I am” statements in this gospel. In John 6 Jesus called himself the Bread of Life. That was the first. We will see 5 more before we finish this gospel account. These metaphors, and…

Into the Fire with Jesus (Feast of Booths Part III)

John 7:25-52 – Jesus faces the Jewish leaders at the Temple itself where the tension is at its height. Here we learn that oppressive tyranny and arrogance is a hallmark of unbelief, yet Jesus speaks the truth in the epicenter of this unbelief. Even here, some believe. We are challenged to go with Jesus into the fire with the Gospel. John 7:25-52…
