While Sue is away on holidays we are showcasing various relevant sermons from YouTube.
Jesus as a good Jewish boy, properly bar mitzvahed and celebrated—then goes on to do the unexpected. Jesus as student and teacher taking a place among the scholars at the temple. Unexpected and unusual things happened around his birth—but not just there. While Jesus was very clearly a good Jewish boy being brought up by faithful God-fearing people he was also something different, something new. This is an invitation to let ourselves be surprised by Jesus, by how he lived, by what he taught, by the people he healed and walked with. Don’t get comfortable—be curious … through Jesus, God was making all things new and continues to do so.
