The Cross, the Temple and the Gospel – Sinclair Ferguson, Andy Robertson and John Owen

Last Sunday was apparently quite a special one in St Peters – if you listen to the two services you will hear why – Sinclair’s sermon on the Cross is stunning, as is Andrew’s on Ezekiel.  What struck me about both is that not only were they deeply biblical and faithful to the text, they were passionate and full of pathos and emotion.  This is … Continue reading The Cross, the Temple and the Gospel – Sinclair Ferguson, Andy Robertson and John Owen
