Default Display message information on lock screen?

When I get a text message it says new message on the lockscreen but doesn't show the actual contents of the message or the sender - is there a way to change this?

Not with the stock lockscreen i don't think. You could try a replacement lockscreen like SlideLock or a notification supplement like AcDisplay. I'm a big fan of AcDisplay.

Strange that they would show a widget notification saying "New Message" but not allow you to show the message content... weird.. thanks, will try out AcDisplay

It may look at little different, as I'm using a N3, but I'd say you have something similar in the stock message app settings.
Go to the stock message app, and hit the menu button, tap settings. Under settings go to the "More" tab and enable preview message:

Found it hidden under notifications. Also, you can have messages pop up on screen work a quick reply. Very cool.
