This past Sunday, March 15th, 2009, John MacArthur preached the first sermon from the last book he will go through verse-by-verse. He started the Gospel of Mark, preaching an introductory message from Mark 1:1. It was a biographical sketch of Mark with the working title something like, Mark: A portrait of a restored deserter. He plans to be in the book, the good Lord willing, for the next 2 years. I predict at least 3.
I'm thinking it's gonna be a little longer than 3. Of course, I have nothing to base that on, but I don't see him getting finished that quick.
There are some things he's said that I roll my eyes over ("All self respecting Calvinists are Pre-mils", his rants on music) but the fact is this--the man will leave as his legacy the most complete resource for understanding the New Testament of anyone who ever lived except for the authors of the New Testament. I praise God for him and the impact that God has had on my life through him.
However, dude needs to hurry up. He needs to get started on the Old Testament.
