The Gospel for the Rest of Us

A 1989 movie, Casualties of War, which starred Michael J. Fox and Sean Penn, told the story of a group of soldiers during the Vietnam War who committed a horrible crime, and one of the soldiers, played by Michael J. Fox, Private Eriksson, witnesses this crime but doesn’t participate in it and doesn’t do anything to stop it. And there’s this scene in the movie where his conscience begins...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

Sermon on Dec 25, 2005

John 1:1-14

Now turn with me, if you would, to the Gospel of John and the very first chapter. And as you’re doing that, let me wish you a Merry Christmas — what's left of it. I trust that you’re not too full of what my son calls tryptophan, which is the chemical in turkey which makes you sleepy. I want us now to take up this evening briefly...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter two, as we come to the eighth of nine studies in the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols that we've been looking at all December long.

Let me just remind you before we read chapter two, the first twelve verses, of the Gospel of Matthew, of what Matthew has told us...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

Sermon on Dec 22, 2005

Luke 2:8-16

Turn with me to Luke 2 and our text for this evening. Our series of sermons is based on the text of the Nine Lessons and Carols service; our text this evening is Luke 2 and verses 8 through 16. Well, actually we’ll take it just a little bit further than that, and probably go down all the way to verse 20, at least in our comments. But...

Sermon on Dec 18, 2005

Luke 2:1-7

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Luke, chapter two. As you do so, I want to ask you a question: What do you think about when you think about the Christmas story? When you hear it read, as we do every year at the Christmas Eve Service, what are the things that you think about? What do you learn? What do...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

Sermon on Dec 14, 2005

Luke 1:26-28

I'd invite you to turn with me to Luke, chapter one. There are outlines of the message tonight and if you don't have one, raise a hand and we’ll get you one. There are a couple in the back, OK?...Luke, chapter one, beginning in verse 26.

This is an extraordinarily rich passage. This is the fifth of the Nine Lessons and Carols. We’ll do Lesson...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

Sermon on Dec 11, 2005

Isaiah 9:2

Now turn with me if you would to the prophecy of Isaiah, and the ninth chapter, and we’ll be reading together the first seven verses of Isaiah, chapter nine. Just by way of reminder, this is a series of sermons and themes based on the King's College, Cambridge, Service of Nine Lessons and Carols. We began it last Lord's Day and it will last through to...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

Sermon on Dec 11, 2005

Isaiah 11:1-9

We begin tonight exactly where Derek left off this morning. If you’ll remember the third “D” in the outline this morning, it was Dominion. And this passage picks up with dominion, but let me remind you of what Derek has already told us.

From at least Isaiah 7 on for a number of chapters, the context is King Ahaz and his plan to rescue...

Mark

Wednesday Evening
November 30, 2005
Mark 13:1-37
“Back to the Future (Part 2)”
Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Now turn with me, if you would, to Mark 13. This is, as I said, one of the most, if not the most...it's certainly one of a half dozen chapters in the Bible that I would regard as the most difficult to interpret, and there are a wide range of opinions...

Psalms Book 3

Sermon on Nov 27, 2005

Psalm 81:1-16

The Lord's Day Evening

November 27, 2005
Psalm 81
“You Wouldn't Listen”
Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 81. This is a Psalm, as you have already noted perhaps from your own study or perhaps from a quick glance at the outline tonight, that is sung or based around the Feast...

Ephesians 3:1-6

“What is the Mystery of Christ?”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Ephesians, chapter 3. Paul is about to return to prayer in this passage. We've seen throughout of study of this book how much of...

Sermon on Nov 24, 2005

Acts 13:52

Thanksgiving Day
November 24, 2005
Acts 13:52; 14:27-28
“Giving Thanks in Hard Places”
Mr. Brad Mercer

If you would, turn in your Bibles to Acts, chapter 15....now I might have just said 15; I meant 13. I'm still shaken up. I received when I walked into the sanctuary this morning a challenge. A mother walked up to me and looked me in the eye and said, “This is...

Mark

Tuesday Evening
November 22, 2005
Mark 13:1-11
“Back to the Future”
Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Now turn with me, if you would, to Mark, chapter 13. In Mark 13 we begin what will turn out to be a two-part study of the thirteenth chapter of Mark's Gospel. I was asked to do the bulletin a week ago or so (because this was Thanksgiving week, and so on), and...
