Sermon: The Long Walk to Bethlehem
Scripture References: Matthew 2:1-12
From Series: "Sinners, Scoundrels and Outcasts"
When it came to making friends, Jesus was master of the unexpected. He didn’t care for the company of Jerusalem’s religious elite, but he was happy to hang out with prostitutes, tax collectors, Roman soldiers and rule-breakers. The Gospels tell countless stories of powerful interactions in which Jesus breaks the social conventions of his time to bring sinners, scoundrels and outcasts into the kingdom of God. Find out why and what this has to do with us on Sunday mornings this winter.
