Baptist21 is pleased to offer the full collection of Jon Akin’s sermons through Proverbs. Inspired by his PhD dissertation, Jon walks through the book of Proverbs verse-by-verse and theme-by-theme, offering a Christocentric interpretation of the text and practical application to our lives today.
In these sermons, Jon examines how the Proverbs are linked to the law and eschatology. Solomon is obeying Deuteronomy 6 in Proverbs as he teaches the law to his son, for it is only through faithfulness to the Torah that the Messianic kingdom will be established (Deuteronomy 17). Therefore, the proverbs are not generally true bits of advice; they are promises that always come true sometimes now but always later. Jesus is the fulfillment of the Proverbs and is therefore the wise Messiah who brings the blessings of wisdom to the world (cf. Isaiah 11).
Dr. Akin’s sermons through Proverbs are an invaluable resource in discovering Christ as the center of Proverbs. These sermons were delivered in 2012 and 2013 at Fairview Church in Lebanon, TN. Find these sermons on our resource page: www.baptisttwentyone.com/baptist21-resources/
