Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The startling question 'Wilt thou be made whole?' exposes the human indifference to salvation, broken only by Christ's initiative in opening the heart to mercy. Here are lessons in salvation; also - Christ's unambiguous assertion of His divinity, which became the real basis of all hostility.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Christ's exhaustion shows His astonishing love in assuming the limitations of human nature for salvation.

Here is the exemplary modesty of the Baptist in yielding the crowd to Christ, and his exalting of Christ's divinity. Also, we see how crowds desired baptism without deep belief, explaining why John's Gospel emphasises belief in Christ's redeeming purpose (which leads to repentance).
