Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 12-JAN-2020 - 9.30 AM Sermon
Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Baptism of Jesus – The sermon was divided into two addresses, one near the start of the church service and the other towards the end of the service. The first address discussed epiphanies, the baptism of Jesus, and some aspects of the way baptism is taught in various churches; and the second address discussed the passage from the book of Isaiah, a passage that had been used by the author of Matthew's gospel to show that Jesus was the fulfillment of a prophesy about a servant of God who was going to usher in a new age of justice and righteousness. Because the Isaiah passage was expressing the hopes and aspirations of the Hebrew people for a better world, we were asked to think about our aspirations for this church's contribution towards a better world over the coming year.
Matthew 3: 13-17; Isaiah 42: 1-9
