John 1:1-18 The Word From Above

We are going to look at the gospel of John, and the series is going to be called, “That You May Believe.” Many of you, of course, will be familiar that that is the purpose of John's gospel, because it's in the 20th chapter that “these things are written so that you may believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

John 1:1-14

“Christmas Viewed From Afar: Heaven”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now I'm grateful to Ligon for giving me the honor and privilege this year of preaching a series of three Christmas, or Advent, sermons. And last week we were beginning about as far back from Christmas as we could possibly get, that is in Genesis 3:15 — Christmas from...

The Word Became Flesh

Now if you would please take a copy of the Scriptures in your hands and turn with me to the Gospel according to John, chapter 1.  John chapter 1; page 886 in the church Bibles.  Christmas for very many of us is a season of brightness and relief - tinsel and Christmas decorations and lights on a tree in the midst of the gathering gloom of winter.  But...

The Word Became Flesh

This morning we are taking a short break from our ongoing studies in the book of Exodus to capitalize on the opportunity afforded by the Advent season and together to think in a sustained and concentrated way about the significance of the first coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  And this year, our thinking will be directed by the prologue to the gospel according to John. ...

“John — On Christmas”

John 1:1-14

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to the gospel of John. We’ll be looking at John 1 verses 1 to 14 this morning. John does not begin his gospel with an account of the nativity of Christ. You’ll find accounts of Jesus’...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

Now turn with me, if you would, to the Gospel of John and the very first chapter. And as you’re doing that, let me wish you a Merry Christmas — what's left of it. I trust that you’re not too full of what my son calls tryptophan, which is the chemical in turkey which makes you sleepy. I want us now to take up this evening briefly...

Nine Lessons and Carols

The Ninth Lesson

God with God

Dr. Derek Thomas

We come this evening to the Ninth and final Lesson in the series known as “The Service of Nine Lessons and Carols.” Over the month of December, through the Sundays of December (bar one of the services, where we had the “Music of Christmas”) we've been...

John 1:1, 14-18

Jesus Is God

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to John, chapter one.

Even as on the Lord's Day morning we're going to be working through three Christmas hymns, or psalms or songs...

If you’ve got your Bibles, please turn to John chapter 1. That will be the passage we’re studying this morning, John 1:1. I apologize I don’t have the pew page number for you on that, but John 1:1; the fourth gospel of the New Testament. Before we hear God’s Word, let’s go to the Lord in prayer.

Father, the words that were...

We’ll turn in our Bibles this evening to Galatians chapter 4. We’ll start there. I’m going to read a couple of different places. As you’re turning there, Jennifer Ouellette, in an article written not long ago, is discussing the way that our things, our stuff, and people’s profiles on Facebook reveal our personality. She says, “We hold onto certain things and display certain things because they remind us...

The Word Became Flesh

Now would you please take a Bible from the pockets in the pews in front of you or turn in your own copy of God’s Word to the gospel according to John, chapter 1.  John’s gospel, chapter 1.  If you are using one of our church Bibles you’ll find that on page 886.  Before we read, it is our custom to pray and ask for God to help...

John 1:14

“The Saving Word”

Mr. Jerry Bridges

Would you open your Bibles with me to John, chapter one. With our Bibles open before us, would you bow with me in prayer.

Our gracious and loving heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the sovereign God of the universe, we come to You this morning. In the words of...

 John chapter 1 begins with those famous and staggering truths about Jesus Christ. That, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” And that “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we have beheld his glory, as of the only son from the Father.” It’s almost as if John is beginning his gospel with a hymn of...


John 1:19-34 A Voice in the Boonies

Turn with me to the gospel of John. Everybody loves John's gospel. It's the gospel Billy Graham sends every recent, new-born convert to read. I was wondering as we were praying together this evening, when was your first experience of reading John's gospel? And you can never tire of John's gospel. Every time you read it, there is something new and...

John 2:1-11 Invitation to a Wedding

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there; and both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine." And Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour...

Scandalous Grace: Jesus' Meals with Sinners

If you would, take your copies of God’s Word or turn in your bulletin to the back of the bulletin where you’ll find our passage for this evening - John’s gospel chapter 2 and the first eleven verses; John 2:1-11.  

At the Table with Jesus

Who you eat with says a very great deal about you.  Who is welcome at your table speaks...

 I heard a definition this week of “stress.” The definition of “stress” that I heard was that “it is the gap between our expectation and our reality.” Stress is the gap between expectation and reality. We all know the stress that comes with unmet expectations, that come with disappointments and letdowns and satisfactions that do not last long or they do not live up to what we hoped...


John 2:12-25 Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness

We've just been looking together in John, chapter two, at the story of the wedding in Cana of Galilee at which Jesus gave the first sign of His native glory and deity, the changing of water into wine-180 gallons of it. This, as John comments, was the first of His signs which He did in Cana of Galilee. Many have studied...
