  1. The further up and further into the season of Epiphany we get, the bigger the grace of God in Christ is, the brighter the Light of Christ shines, and the more blessed we are in Jesus' epiphany for us.
  2. The sign of the cross, according to the earliest centuries of Christians, is “the sign of the Lord,” and every baptized Christian was “marked” with it.
  3. The answer to our messages is God's "yes," Jesus, who sends his preachers to proclaim that there's no place for us now other than in the grip of our God and Savior.
  4. The usual acclamation when one becomes King is: “Long live the King!” But this King of kings, this son of David, has come to die.
  5. For almost three years, I have produced a weekly video in the series “Reading the Gospels through Hebrew Eyes.” Here is an index of all the Gospel readings covered so far, with links to their YouTube videos.
  6. Despite our best efforts to avoid him, King Jesus remains very much unavoidable.
  7. To trust in the Lord, the Messiah, the Deliverer, is our salvation and our only hope. Yet he does not trust us to have this “trust” on our own or of our own will.
  8. A.I. can’t make the proclamatory move that delivers God’s word in a way that is specifically for me.
  9. When and how did the church start this season of anticipation?
  10. Help comes for those who cannot help themselves. When we bottom-out and come to the end of ourselves, that is where hope springs.
  11. That is the task of preaching in these last weeks of the Church Year, to enable the people given to our care, to praise God from the perspective of the end when our Lord will return in glory bringing us into His Kingdom of glory.
