The Most Momentous News of All

From a letter by Martyn Lloyd-Jones to his son-in-law and daughter, Fred and Elizabeth Catherwood, April 5, 1954, about the sermon he preached the night before from Acts 17:1-3:

My theme in general was this: Paul did not discuss the questions of the day but always preached Jesus. His method is important… He ‘opened’ the Scriptures, then reasoned in them and then alleged or propounded his message that Jesus is the Christ. It is the most momentous news of all.
