This was Jesus


The author, the Most Reverend Sir Marcus Loane (1912-2009), was formerly the Archbishop of Sydney and Primate of the Anglican Church in Australia. For many years the Principal of Moore Theological College, Sydney, he travelled widely in Australia and overseas, bringing his theological, ministerial and devotional insights to many situations. During the last ten years he has lived in retirement in the parish of St James, Turramurra. It has been his privilege to preach regularly in St James and many of his sermons have been based on texts in the Synoptic Gospels.

The chapters which make up this book contain more or less the substance of a number of these sermons. One of their aims was to try to learn more of the mind that was in Jesus as He lived on earth and taught all who were willing to hear. They seek to bring out the real force of the text in a way that will afford growing insight into His heart and mind. Written sermons may be more exact than spoken sermons, though they cannot convey the full warmth and rapport that exist between the preacher and the congregation. But written or spoken, their great aim is to commend the Lord Jesus, to unveil the glory of His love, and to persuade people to put their trust in Him.
