Sermon 219 : Palm Sunday : The Passion of the Christ
Please click the play button above to listen now.
Every Palm Sunday, we hear the passion narrative from one of the synoptic Gospels. This year, we are immersed in Matthew's version. Matthew shows us that, as Jesus resolutely does the will of his Father, myriad forms of human dysfunction--betrayal, sloth, stupidity, violence, scapegoating, corruption, cruelty--break out around him. This is the story of salvation: God's healing confrontation with sin; God's compassionate embrace of the sinner.
