Book Description

God’s Sovereign Purpose will focus each reader’s attention on the God of Scripture, in whose presence our questions about Scripture are put in proper perspective. Here, with Augustine, we hear Dr. Lloyd-Jones summoning us, before the majestic sovereignty of God, to ‘humility, humility, humility’.

  The Jews’ unique relationship to God – Jews, Hebrews and Israelites – various meanings of adoption – the manifestation of God’s glory – the Gentiles’ share in these privileges – the tragedy of the Israelites.

  Grammar, manuscripts and the deity of Christ – Christ as Head over all things – direct references to Christ’s deity – doxologies addressed to Christ – history and theological prejudice.  
 8. Eight 91
  Paul begins to deal with the objection – God’s declared purpose has not been ineffective – the key phrase – the principle seen in the Gospels and Acts – relevance to today – the two meanings of ‘Israel’.  
 9. Nine 103
  Proofs from the history of Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael – ‘seed’, ‘children’ and ‘called’ – God’s choice, not Abraham’s – the spiritual seed, the children of God – Isaac’s miraculous birth ‘after the Spirit’.  
 10. Ten 116
  The case of Rebekah’s children – the same mother and father – Jacob loved, Esau hated – the principle of election – God’s independent action to establish His purpose.  
 11. Eleven 127
  Argument is necessary – God’s purpose worked out through election – God’s choice is free and sovereign – the true perspective is positive – this interpretation leads naturally to the objection in verse 14.

 15. Fifteen 180

 16. Sixteen 194
  The absurdity of questioning God – the scriptural basis for Paul’s rebuke – the difference between creating, and shaping fallen humanity – our responsibility for sin – the inconsistency of Paul’s opponents – contingency, determinism and Christian certainty.  
 17. Seventeen 209

 24. Twenty-four 298
  Christ’s death planned and prophesied – Christ the stumbling-stone – the offence of the cross – pride and self-confidence exposed – offence in the church – God’s way of righteousness rejected.
