An analysis of the doctrine of the priesthood of Jesus Christ in the functional Christology of Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Main Article Content
Christian George approaches Charles Spurgeon’s sermons in terms of a preached Christology, that is, a Christology not confined to dogmatics but operative in preaching. If we want to know what a model of Christology might look like preached, here in Spurgeon’s sermons we find it. This is because, as George notes, for Spurgeon, true Christianity involved ‘personally living with a personal Saviour, personally trusting a personal Redeemer, personally crying out to a personal Intercessor.’ For those who preach, Spurgeon’s sermons constitute a challenge – to proclaim, for example, the High Priesthood of Christ, the nature of His mediation, the range and depth of His intercession – and, at the same time, offer a model of how this might be done.
