Series:
Passage: Luke 3:21-38
Service Type:

This week’s sermon (Luke 3:21-38) is without a doubt the hardest text that I’ve ever preached in over 30 years of ministry! Yes, that’s right! Because it contains a lengthy genealogy; and, when is the last time you heard a sermon based upon a genealogy? You don’t! Pastors routinely skip over these passages in their preaching. Very few commentators and theologians even attempt to comment on them. But, we’re going to wade through these murky waters this week because we believe in teaching ALL of God’s Word, not just the parts that are popular or that preach well.

And, lest you think that this means that the sermon will be like watching paint dry, or dying a slow agonizing death by torture, I have GREAT NEWS for you! God honors His Word! And, every passage of Scripture is there for a reason. Plus, the Holy Spirit uncovered some fascinating stuff for me this week in my sermon prep/study! And, I can’t wait to share it with you!
