An analysis of the doctrine of the priesthood of Jesus Christ in the functional Christology of Charles Haddon Spurgeon
MetadataShow full item record
Christian George approaches Charles Spurgeon’s sermons in terms of a preached Christology, that is, a Christology not confined to dogmatics but operative in preaching. If we want to know what a model of Christology might look like preached, here in Spurgeon’s sermons we find it. This is because, as George notes, for Spurgeon, true Christianity involved ‘personally living with a personal Saviour, personally trusting a personal Redeemer, personally crying out to a personal Intercessor.’ For those who preach, Spurgeon’s sermons constitute a challenge – to proclaim, for example, the High Priesthood of Christ, the nature of His mediation, the range and depth of His intercession – and, at the same time, offer a model of how this might be done.
