Sermon Notes

This sermon, for the Third Sunday of Lent, is based on the Revised Common Lectionary gospel text: John 2: 13-22. In a moment of righteous indignation, Jesus clears the temple of all those who are cheating their customers and taking advantage of those who come to make sacrifice and renew their covenant with God. How do we deal with this difficult passage that shows such an angry God?
Other texts for this Sunday’s lectionary include: Exodus 20: 1-17; Psalm 19; and 1 Corinthians 1: 18-25. For the full lectionary texts, click here.
