"Introductory note john bunyan was born at l. Sto bedfordshire inclined in november. Sixteen twenty eight. His father was a maker and member of parts and kettles and the sun followed the same trade. Though he's usually called a tinker bunion had settled home and place a business he had little schooling and he describes his early surroundings as poor in maine when he was not yet sixteen. His mother died in two months. His father married again and the sun enlisted as a soldier in the civil war in november. One thousand six hundred forty four though weather on the parliamentary or side is not certain. The armies were disbanded in sixteen forty. Six and about two years. Bunion married a wife whose piety redeemed him from his delight in rural sport and the habit of profane swearing. He became much interested in religions but it was only after a tremendous spiritual conflict lasting three or four years that he found peace. His struggles are related with extraordinary vividness and intensity and his grace abounding to the chief of centers in sixteen fifty five the year in which he lost his wife he began to exhort and two years later he became a regular nonconformist preacher continuing however to practice his trade his success as a preacher roused opposition among the regular clergy and in sixteen fifty eight. He was indicted at the assizes. His writing began with a controversy against the quakers and shows the first the command of a holy but vigorous style with a reenactment of the laws against nonconformity at the restoration. Bunion became subject to more severe persecution and with a short intermission. He was confined to prison from sixteen sixty till one thousand six hundred seventy two again and again. He might have been released but he refused to promise to desist from preaching and there was no alternative for the justices but to keep him in confinement sometimes lacks jailers permitted him to preach at church meetings. He frequently ministered to his fellow prisoners and he supported his family now looked after by second wife by making laces. He had apparently abundant leisure for he wrote in prison. A large number of books the first one of importance being that already mentioned grace abounding one thousand six hundred sixty six. The pilgrim's progress was also written in jail. But probably during later confinement of six months in sixteen seventy five in sixteen. Seventy two charles. The second suspended the laws against nonconformists and roman. Catholics and bunion was released. He was called to be ministered to a nonconformist congregation in bedford and preached in the barn which serve them as a church but his ministrations were not confined bedford. He made preaching tours over a wide district and even to london and attracted great crowds of listeners. Meanwhile he continued to write the first edition of the pilgrim's progress in sixteen seventy eight was followed by others with additions and in sixteen eighty four by the second part. The life and death of mr batman appeared in sixteen eighty. The holy war made by shaddai upon dabo is in sixteen eighty two. If the works left in manuscript at his death be included the total of his books amounts to nearly sixty he died in sixteen eighty eight leaving a widow and six children and a personal estate of less than one hundred pounds. The pilgrim's progress became at once and has continued to be by far the most widely read of all his works and one of the most universally known of english books. Though in the form of an allegory the narrative interest is so powerful. The drawing of permanent types of human character is so vigorous and the style is so simple and directed. It takes rank as a great work of fiction. The best sides of english puritanism have here their most adequate and characteristic expression while the intensity of bunions religious fervor and the universality of the spiritual problems with which he deals. Raise the work to a place among the great religious classics of the world..

We're wrapping up our great time here at the Van encamping collection and the script Him here in Orlando Florida and we are standing in a jail cell while it's a replica of jail cell and and it is a jail cell for someone who is very crucial one of those towering figures in church history. None other than John Bunyan and here in this room that this may be like bunions jail cell complete with a very primitive bed or a number of artifacts and books related to John Bunyan. I there is an early edition of Pilgrim's progress with an engraving. It's interesting that these early editions of Pilgrim's progress progress were so read. They were just literally devoured by people as they passed from hand to hand and so copies. Just don't exist. They we're literally read out of existence as people just gobbled up this beautiful taxed that so well portrays vividly portrays the the pilgrimage of the Christian life. Well so here there's a would fragment from the L.. Stowe house there is a key to the Bedford furred prison and actual key from the Bedford. Prison reminds me of that scene in. Pilgrim's progress where Christian is just so despondent despondent and they're in the castle of giant despair. And they're locked deep deep down in dungeon and they're just absolutely despondent and then all of a sudden Christian remembers that he is a key and he reaches into the folds of his cloak and he pulls out the key of promise anti he with a shaking hand tries it in the lock and it opens the door and they come to another lock and opens that lock in another gate and it opens that lock and they escape and what a beautiful portrayal is of the promise. That is God's word and that's quite a key. Maybe bunion had that particular key in mind. When he wrote his text? You know Bunyan wrote other books. Right beyond the pilgrim's progress and one of them in true bunion scholars. Say that they. I think it's a better book than Pilgrim's progress. It's the Holy War and here too is a copy of the Holy War from sixteen eighty. Two and Bunion also knew a thing or two about suffering. Didn't he lost his first wife is oldest daughter was born blind and also he himself himself suffered in prison and saw the death of friends and also just personally suffered so in sixteen eighty four. He published advice to sufferers. And here. In this bunion room there is a copy of that as well. So all of these testament to the author John Bunyan and his wonderful classic. The pilgrim's progress all of that is here and the script Oria in Orlando well continuing our journey through bibles and texts related to the reformation. There is Fox's acts and monuments since I'm looking at a fifteen ninety six edition of course this book. Chronicles the MARTYRDOMS. Most of them happening under bloody Mary. Harry but Fox begins his story actually back. In the days of the apostles as the New Testament was coming to a close and Fox records forged the many centuries of martyrdoms and especially those martyrdoms related to the British reformation and next to it is a Bible. That is a stirring testament to one of those martyrdoms. It's in that great English tradition of Bible translations ends than that line from wickliffe. All the way up to King James. It's a Matthew's Bible at dates to fifteen thirty seven. It is opened the two pages and John and the reason it's open to pages and John is that they're on those pages. There's actually the blood stains means of a martyr of the British reformation.

Well so here there's a would fragment from the L.. Stowe house there is a key to the Bedford furred prison and actual key from the Bedford. Prison reminds me of that scene in. Pilgrim's progress where Christian is just so despondent despondent and they're in the castle of giant despair. And they're locked deep deep down in dungeon and they're just absolutely despondent and then all of a sudden Christian remembers that he is a key and he reaches into the folds of his cloak and he pulls out the key of promise anti he with a shaking hand tries it in the lock and it opens the door and they come to another lock and opens that lock in another gate and it opens that lock and they escape and what a beautiful portrayal is of the promise. That is God's word and that's quite a key. Maybe bunion had that particular key in mind. When he wrote his text? You know Bunyan wrote other books. Right beyond the pilgrim's progress and one of them in true bunion scholars. Say that they. I think it's a better book than Pilgrim's progress. It's the Holy War and here too is a copy of the Holy War from sixteen eighty. Two and Bunion also knew a thing or two about suffering. Didn't he lost his first wife is oldest daughter was born blind and also he himself himself suffered in prison and saw the death of friends and also just personally suffered so in sixteen eighty four. He published advice to sufferers. And here. In this bunion room there is a copy of that as well. So all of these testament to the author John Bunyan and his wonderful classic. The pilgrim's progress all of that is here and the script Oria in Orlando well continuing our journey through bibles and texts related to the reformation. There is Fox's acts and monuments since I'm looking at a fifteen ninety six edition of course this book. Chronicles the MARTYRDOMS. Most of them happening under bloody Mary. Harry but Fox begins his story actually back. In the days of the apostles as the New Testament was coming to a close and Fox records forged the many centuries of martyrdoms and especially those martyrdoms related to the British reformation and next to it is a Bible. That is a stirring testament to one of those martyrdoms. It's in that great English tradition of Bible translations ends than that line from wickliffe. All the way up to King James. It's a Matthew's Bible at dates to fifteen thirty seven. It is opened the two pages and John and the reason it's open to pages and John is that they're on those pages.

"You know recently Harold Bloom died he was the figure of extrordinary controversy Oko Zinder other circumstances is he would have been just another professor but he was the professor who was defending the Western canon as he quoted which meant that he was talking about Shakespeare and Milton and of course his great of Shelley he studied how these writers in the Canon influenced each other he wrote a book called the Gang Society of influence he really became the writer of our time talking out that tradition now let's acknowledge that tradition is rarely taught in the university the way it was in the generation of Herald I had the pleasure and I would say the honor of talking to her world boom at his own apartment in New York I will say that I disagreed with him about many things things when we aired these interviews people wrote in Yes harold bloom was an elitist yes he was but we should have one of everything and there are leaders and there are populous and there are ever very kind of response that you can have two good richer this is harold boom from our conversation on bookworm unlike his book the Anatomy of influence literature is a way of life which seems a settled and masterful book the shadow of a great rock is audacious and I would like to say even dangerous which tells us that a great mind doesn't settle into somnolence or eternity it's always at work work and always making trouble this is the nature of the mind Harold Bloom my wife would appreciate how do you how do you feel you've spoken of the many controversies you've causes mentioned some of them in this book it's never going to see aw both well hated and well loved and particularly with I have to say about the New Testament here has already started Israel fury I've got nasty email nasty letters and even a couple of nasty anonymous phone calls you say that the ten handle translation of the old the New Testament is the breakthrough in Boston since they burned I mean he's both a great model a great writer and the Grand Bigot with that it's not full they were all bigots of goals they would all I'm very glad to see you and myself crucified angry anti-semites but it went with the territory as it were Tindale was martyred burned alive before he could finish his translation of what he called the Old Testament as you will notice throughout this look the shadow of a great rock I insist upon referring to it as the original testament Tomahawk the Hebrew Bible and what is called the New Testament by its proper name the belated testament which is also beginning to get into the usual difficulties but that's fun Tindale was burned alive before he could translate the prophets and most of the great writings and that's how a loss because tremendous writer in every way you compare to Shakespeare and Milton I would say that the greatest writer certain in English paps in any language I'm able to read is of course we shakespeare indeed have now reached a point where I've totally infuriated but I like doing that of course with them the horrible shakespeare establishment these dryers dust moldy fix calls by simply saying there is no God but God his name is William Shakes sure of course after Shakespeare you have to put chaucer stunning extraordinary writer without really Shakespeare did not have been possible then tindale and Milton I would say of almost equal imminence the English novel sales of Daniel Defoe and John Bunyan at its very beginning wouldn't have been possible without Tindale he was not a lyrical writer but a very great narrative genius I of course New Testament which was complete is the entire basis if the King James New Testament and is major writing is largely preserved in the Geneva Bible and subsequently in the King James Bible and various scholars who have said that it would be very difficult to think of the style of certain moments in King Lear without the Tim Daly an element in the Geneva Bible our I think basically justified you say that the two greatest works in the English language are composed really within a decade need

"You you and for your children and for all the ones at a distance as many as the Lord our God will call that you and may we were at the distance. We were called but I want you to notice the baptism for the removal movable of sins is not the same as being baptized in the Holy Spirit the not the same there are two different events so believing Jesus repenting these are all separate things being baptized in the water then being baptized in the Holy Spirit Spirit these Peter in the Peter Package are he's saying these are all the necessary elements to be sealed for your salvation. Oh my saying that without being baptized in water or baptized appetizing in the Holy Spirit. You can't be saved not going to say that. I don't know to be very frank with you. I don't know I believe that a man who cries out to the Lord who surrenders his life who gives himself to Jesus Christ. I believe that man is saved but there are a pieces of that process that we need to not bypass so I'm saying to you. Inefficiencies in the first chapter being sealed in the Holy Spirit is the baptism of the Holy Spirit Spirit. Now I always thought of being sealed that happened baptism but obviously I was wrong. Just just read the scripture. The Holy Spirit came one time he came as a baptism of the Holy Spirit he didn't didn't walk in silently on cats feet and surprise everybody he came boldly and you know when you've been baptized in the Holy Spirit. It's it's like getting the flu. You know when you have the flu you know when you were plunged under the water. I have a vivid memory of being plunged under the water her in water baptism. Oh please. I'm not saying you have to do this. I'm seeing this Mrs. I'm reading you. The scriptures that say this is the process. This is the road. It's not a vertical line where we pass that line we we we say a sinner's prayer. We passed the line now. We've got our ticket and we're good to go to heaven and we'RE NOT GONNA go to hell. That's foolishness. It's not in scripture John John Bunyan and that's why I chose this this name Pilgrim's progress as he wrote that allegory back in the sixteen early sixteen eighteen hundreds in his prison cell. He saw even as I do that. It's a journey. It's a vertical line fine. It's a journey to the Jordan River where you die and you enter into the kingdom into the glory of Heaven with Jesus so am I saved. I'm in the process of being saved. I stand by faith. I'm saved in Jesus Jesus but I'm not there yet so according to efficient visions I need to be sealed in the Holy Spirit and warned not to grieve the Holy Spirit by bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and evil speaking malice..

"This is Paul's message for which I am suffering. You don't hear a lot of sermons on that be faithful to the gospel? So you can suffer. But true words were never spoken and all live godly in Christ will suffer persecution Paul told Titus as priest in my gospel for which I am suffering bound with chains as a criminal. This the apostle Paul we're talking about here like numero Uno disciple after two thousand years, and he's imprison in chains for following Jesus. If that doesn't negate forever the notion that getting it right means life is easier. You're not paying attention. Getting it, right. Sometimes means suffering. He says for which I am suffering bound with chains as a criminal underlying this second underlining the passage for you. But the word of God is not bound, isn't that awesome? If what you really want is the message of the word to go out have no fear, even when you're suffering. Sometimes the word of God is going out through us more powerfully when we're suffering Martin Luther great him. A mighty fortress is our God a bulwark never failing. And then this this phrase the body. They may kill Luther said God's truth abides still. She can't stop the word of God. John Bunyan, John Bunyan is you know. He is the author of what book tick tock tick tock, right pilgrim's progress and Bundy was imprisoned in Bedford England with a little window at the top of his cell and a brick wall outside it, and he would stand up as tall as he could imprison, and he would preach his heart out the wall, and on the other side of the wall crowds gathered and thousands were converted and bunion said I am in prison. But the word of God is not bound. And no matter what you're facing or feeling. Anticipate remember Jesus Christ risen from the dead and -ticipant the victory of God's word.

This was actually a little him in the early church. If we've died with him, we will also live with him. If we endure we will also reign with him. If we deny him he'll also deny us.

"It's always great to be here. Gary. This is perhaps the million dollar question. I'm not sure we may have a few million dollar questions in here, but is it really possible to change a husband? Let's go there. I like to use the word influence your husband, but we have to put it in the right context. Let me put it as a husband with his wife. If I try to turn my wife into a love, Gary, like he wants to be loved machine. That's the height of narcissism. But if I want to influence her so that she becomes all that God has called her to be in Christ, that's a holy pursuit. It says, the Christ loved the church, and part of that was wanting to make her holy. So it is a good desire to see your spouse grow into the person guide created them to be. It can be an. Evil desire. If you're trying to turn them into that, love me. Like I wanna be loved machine motivation is everything here, right? The difficulty in that though is we are born in this world as selfish creatures. That's the second nature that we all possess whether your husband or a wife. So how how do you get to the point where you can overlook or put asunder, though selfish attitudes and really look out for the best interest of your spouse. That's the other million dollar. I think it begins by dreaming with God about who he wants our spouse to be. So it's not just us, but we're sitting at the feet of Jesus and saying, who do you want him or her to be as a worker as a husband or as a wife as a friend as a son, or as a daughter and saying, how do I participate with what you're already doing in their life? And you might be surprised. God may take it into a direction. One of the things I mentioned here to just kind of give some perspective because some wise say with my husband was just a more committed Christian life would be so much easier. It'd be more fun. It would be better now you're taking off the list if it was, you know, spiritually leading in our family, pick up after himself. But, but then I use the story of John Bunyan who when he married his wife, his first wife died, so he married her and had several children already. He was put in jail for preaching the gospel without a license. And in those days, when you were in jail, they didn't feed you and they didn't clothes if you didn't have family that came and took care of you and tell us, oh, here's a young wife, barely married having to bring his food to the prison every day having to care for his kids. And in fact, because he wouldn't stop preaching the gospel, he was in prison as much as he lived with her outside of prison. So it's possible that supporting our spouse and who they would be in Christ can make life more difficult. That's why. Again, we want to look at the motivations. It's not about us. It's narcissism. It's about them being released to be the person that God created them to be. Let's go back to the changing versus the influencing. What is the difference? Let's be really clear about that. What is the attitude. I'm going to change my husband versus the attitude of I'm going to influence him. I believe biblical influence, and here's the challenge and the rub comes from setting the example pulses. The stronger gives way to the weaker. He says, follow me as I follow Christ throughout the bible. You see that the best way to influence someone is to be what you want them to be. Let that be contagious, let it invite them into a new way of thinking. The best way for me to stop. Gossiping is when I see a person in a very holy way, turn a conversation toward encouragement and blessing..

And with that he shut his eyes and went home to be with the Lord John Bunyan who was in prison for his faith and wrote pilgrim's progress in sixteen twenty eight have become very estranged from his son and bunion went to London on a mission of reconciliation on the way home. He got caught in a violent storm and contract that a very mysterious disease, which would end his life ten days later. His last words recorded by those were. With him at his bedside. When he died were these we not for me, but for yourselves, I go to the father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who will no doubt through the mediation of his blessed? Son receive me though a center when I hope we shall air long. Meet the sing a new song and remain ever lastingly happy in the world without in men in bunion died. Those were the last words of faithful people who knew they were going to die. That's what they said before they died. John chapters thirteen to seventeen is a critical tax because it gives us in great detail Christ final instructions to his disciple on the very ninety was arrested in less than one day from this instruction in less than one day from this conversation Jesus Christ will be hanging on a cross dying for sins. His public ministry is over. And we come now to what many believe is one of the most sacred series of chapters and all of the bible. There are no chapters like these anywhere else in scripture, the gospel of John gives us much more of the content of Christ final instruction to the disciples than all the other gospels do. Now, the context of this is that there were many who had believed on the Lord, but they were not following the Lord, they were secret believers who would not be highly honored in heaven, nor would they be really happy here on earth as a believer. You cannot be happy until you decide you're going to obey the word of God. And do what God wants you to do. And never is that more evident than when you come to this text tonight. Now before we analyze what's actually in the text. There are three observations I wanna.
