Sermon Notes

This sermon, for the Fifth Sunday of Lent, is based on the Revised Common Lectionary gospel text: John 12: 20-33. 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: Jeremiah 31: 31-34; Psalm 51: 1-12; and Hebrews 5: 5-10. sFor the full lectionary texts, click here.
