Homilies about Proper 27

Children of the Resurrection  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 20: 27–38
Summary: The age of resurrection is not something that we are able to comprehend yet. It is so different from our life here, and so much better, that we can’t even imagine what it will be like. It is reality. It is as true as anything in this world, but we don’t yet have the ability to fathom what it is like. The new life that God has prepared for us beyond the grave is beyond what we can imagine. But when we receive it, it will be joy unspeakable.

Living in the Memory of God  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 20: 27–38
Summary: Though the Sadducees of the scripture lesson today were seeking to trip up Jesus in their question about the Resurrection, Jesus looks beyond their trap to a fundamental human hope — that we be remembered and valued beyond the borders of this life. In his response to their question, Jesus speaks to our hope that God will not forget us and at last hold us forever in eternal life.

The Game–Changer  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 20: 27–38
Summary: A group of Sadducees challenge Jesus with a hypothetical scenario about marriage in the resurrection. Jesus explodes their question by challenging his hearers to evaluate their way of life in light of the resurrection and to recognize that they have misread the scriptures, which point to the reality of God’s resurrection power.

Unfriendly Fire  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 20: 27–38
Summary: Jesus is caught in the crossfire between two faith communities that look at the world in different ways: One believed our status is determined at birth; the other believed people made choices. That tension is not resolved even today. We live in the tension between a God totally in control and the authenticity of human choices. A little common sense will get us through most anything.

The Perils of Proof–Texting  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 20: 27–38
Summary: This passage, in which Jesus is challenged about belief in resurrection, is as much a passage about authority as it is about resurrection. Where is our ultimate authority as to what we shall believe about this life and the life to come? What has ultimate authority in the lives of those who claim and own faith in the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob — and the God represented by Jesus Christ?
