- Willie J. Jennings - Sermon Untitled (March 12, 1995)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 21:38. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 55:35.
This sermon explores the realities of Jerusalem--both its deep history with the people of God and its existence as a city like all cities, where self-interest and suspicion prevail--as a background for the killing of prophets and the final prophet, Jesus; it calls those who hear to welcome Jesus' coming not only as a prophet but as a king. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: “[Jesus] sums up God’s entire history with the people, God’s longing, God’s humiliation, God’s sadness, he sums it all up in one verse. ‘I wanted you, but you didn’t want me.’ But Jesus is coming and the death of this prophet is indeed an act of grace. Because his coming to Jerusalem is his coming to us, locked in our sin.” (51:15)
