What did they expect?

January 30th, 2019

“What do you expect from a sermon?” It’s a question Will Willimon has asked many people through the years and he’s gotten a lot of interesting answers. But if you had asked the people in Jesus’ hometown synagogue what they expected from a sermon no one would have said they expected to be reminded that God is God, and that if God chooses to save others before he saves his own that’s his prerogative. Some sermons are not easy to hear. Some preachers know that and preach them anyway. Jesus was one of those preachers.

This sermon is from A Sermon for Every Sunday, a series of lectionary-based video sermons designed for use in worship, Bible study, small groups, Sunday school classes or for individual use.
