I'm wondering how a beginner web developer will benefit from this series of lectures. Is this course answers deep and unclear concepts of computer science?

"Why they stop to teach it?" section partially answers it. It depends on what you are looking for if you look for a fundamental understanding of (some) computer concepts SICP is good if you want practical on hands knowledge than it is not.

If you have free time and want to learn something SICP is good, if you barely have time than probably not.
