- William H. Willimon - "Palm/Passion Peculiarity" (March 24, 2002)
Sermon start time: 00:05. Sermon end time: 18:55.
The crucifixion of Jesus changed everything. The preacher argues that Christian faith is one of the strangest ways of thinking, for it says God came in a human form to die for us, so that our sins are forgiven and we can forgive our enemies, even those who kill us. The preacher talks about the 9/11 Terror Attack as an example of forgiveness made possible by the transformation through the gospel. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: “Christians are people who are odd enough to believe this: the worst thing that was ever done in history, in the long record of human injustice and evil was not what happened to us on a Tuesday. It was what happened to Jesus on a Friday. Christians are people who are trying to believe, and align our lives on the basis of this belief, that the world really has changed forever, but not on a Tuesday in early morning Manhattan, but on a Friday at noon at a place called Calvary.”
