SERMONS


  Sunday December 16, 2007  Kevin Derr Sermon  Audio only:

   “Proclamations"

   Scripture:  Matthew 11:2-11

 

Matthew 11:2-11 (New International Version)

Jesus and John the Baptist
 1After Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in the towns of Galilee.

 2When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples 3to ask him, "Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?"

 4Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see: 5The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. 6Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me."

 7As John's disciples were leaving, Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John: "What did you go out into the desert to see? A reed swayed by the wind? 8If not, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fine clothes? No, those who wear fine clothes are in kings' palaces. 9Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. 10This is the one about whom it is written:
   " 'I will send my messenger ahead of you,
      who will prepare your way before you. 11I tell you the truth: Among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
