Blue Letter Bible is privileged to present a digital edition of Thomas Goodwin’s Christ Set Forth. This book was originally published in 1642, as an exposition of Romans 8:34.
“Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” (Romans 8:34)
Excerpt from Christ Set Forth
“We owe our standing in grace every moment to his sitting in heaven and interceding every moment.” (Section 5 :: Chapter 3)
This quote reflects a small glimpse at Goodwin’s heartfelt understanding of our human depravity and God’s sovereign grace. In what could be considered a classic work, Goodwin exalts the glory of Christ our Redeemer, while encouraging us to fight the battle against personal sin. Through his exposition of Scripture, he clearly asserts the sufficiency and supremacy of Christ, while ascribing the joy that ought to be to all believers. This timeless work is certain to provoke meaningful reflection and true thanksgiving, as the reader joins Goodwin in seeing Christ set forth.
