Book Description

It was the sermons on this first chapter of Ephesians, commenced at Westminster on Sunday mornings in the autumn of 1954, that proved to be the start of the author’s prolonged treatment of various New Testament books. By that date Dr Lloyd-Jones had been more than 25 years in the ministry and his convictions on how Scripture should be taught were fully matured. The sermons on Ephesians were, therefore, in a sense a new point of departure.

But apart from its significance in Dr Lloyd-Jones’ ministry, Ephesians Chapter One will always be of major importance in any consideration of the New Testament. As the author writes in his Preface: ‘The Epistle to the Ephesians is the most “mystical” of Paul’s epistles, and nowhere does his inspired mind soar to greater heights. There is no greater privilege in life than to be called to expound what Thomas Carlyle called such “infinities and immensities”.’

This volume is the first in a series of eight volumes.

    Being blessed daily by this careful exposition. Dr. Lloyd-Jones has a way of preaching to us in the Spirit and through these words. What I value most about Him is that reality, that he preaches always with a mind that is always reflecting on the reality of what is preached here in Ephesians one, that we are NOW in the heavenly places, alive with Christ. The Gospel is transformative of every thought that is thought in Christ and this exposition carries us along in that manner. Always keeping before us, our residency in Heaven through the Gospel and how moving it is. Wishing that Banner could make these available in the States. Praise God for his mercy and grace in the ministry of Dr. Lloyd-Jones.

    Last year I finished the complete Romans series by MLJ and have just begun this first volume in his treatment of Ephesians. I can say without hesitation that this has already settled questions that I have had for over 23 years regarding the sealing of the Spirit, the difference between being filled and baptized in the Spirit, and so much more. I heartily recommend reading this book; especially if you hope for a Christian walk that is both relevant and pertinent for today’s challenges. As per the Doctor’s eternal wisdom and deep care for the modern mind, answers abound here. As do strength, encouragement, and clarity. A must read.
