Jesus: The Preacher

Jesus: The Preacher

Jesus was the supreme preacher: His listeners were astonished at the power behind His teaching, and His sermons were engaging, well organized, and full of truth. When Jesus preached, some of his hearers were scared, and others were offended—but many also believed. In this message, Alistair Begg encourages pastors to follow Jesus’ example by proclaiming God’s Word with authority.

The Pastor's Study, Volume 1

Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that "the work of preaching is the highest and greatest and most glorious calling to which anyone can ever be called." Such a high calling, however, comes with a high level of responsibility: As a pastor places his confidence in the Gospel’s power, the task of proclamation must be his chief concern. In the Pastor’s Study, we present a collection of sermons designed to help and encourage the Gospel-centered pastor as he evangelizes faithfully and establishes believers in the sound doctrine essential to spiritual growth.

In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg looks to Scripture for examples of biblical leadership. In Nehemiah’s efforts to rebuild Jerusalem’s walls and Paul’s work to establish the New Testament Church, today’s pastors find patterns of God-centered leadership worthy of imitation. True leadership, the Bible reminds us, is about submitting oneself to God’s vision for His people.

Regardless of the challenges or changes that may come, a good leader places his trust in God’s strength, not his own.
