Man and His Unbelief
John 8:13 — John 8:13 titled “Man and His Unbelief,” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones addresses the unbelief of the Pharisees when they questioned Jesus. He elaborates that whenever Jesus made big claims, the Pharisees would interrogate Him on small matters of theology and the law. They would hold fast to their understanding of the law and miss seeing the Messiah altogether. Moreover, Dr. Lloyd-Jones shows that these kinds of accounts are included in Scripture to reveal unbelief and shed light on the common sins that plague this world. Dr. Lloyd-Jones says that every generation claims to have the solution to sin and suffering while simultaneously shutting out the possibility of God revealing Himself through His word and through His Son. Finally, Dr. Lloyd-Jones brings his discourse to address his audience: “Do you believe? Do you know that your sin must be dealt with? Do you believe that Christ can make the vilest sinner clean? Do you know your need of Him?” He encourages the listener to waste no more time in unbelief and sin, but to hasten to Christ and live.
