The Preeminent Preacher

Speaker:
Passage: Matthew 7:28-29
Service Type:

Bible Text: Matthew 7:28-29 | Speaker: Mike Chalmers | Series: Messiah and King | After the great Sermon on the Mount, “the crowds were amazed”. In this message, we look at what this reaction meant, along with what it did not mean. What was the reason that they recognized that Jesus had an authority unlike the scribes and the Pharisees?

Why does Matthew add these two verses at 7:28-29? D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones tells us that this statement is not merely a castaway epilogue, but are meant to point the reader to the Preacher Himself.

Jesus taught as no one ever had, with His own divinely appointed authority. He is the preeminent preacher.
