Inside-Out Living
45:23

In today’s passage from the Gospel of Luke, we’re taking a look at a parable which shows us a problem that everybody faces in life – it’s universal in scope. This is the problem of righteousness. 

There are two ways to deal with this problem. The parable introduces us to two guys, each of whom represents a particular solution to the problem. One works (the inside-out approach) and one does not (the outside-in approach). 

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 11, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 4; The Kingdom of God." Scripture: Luke 18:9-14.

Upside-Down Living
44:05

Many of you have heard the term “kingdom of God,” but can you put in a nutshell what it is? Dallas Willard, a philosopher at the University of Southern California, says a kingdom is the “range of your effective will.” If somebody gets into your bag and takes something out, you’ll be outraged. Why? There has been an intrusion on your territory — or your kingdom. There has been a violation of the range of your effective will. 

What does it mean, then, to put yourself within the range of God’s effective will? It means that you get a lasting identity that goes on for eternity, and it is marked by astounding liberality. Let’s look more closely at how we can get that kind of identity. 

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 4, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 4; The Kingdom of God." Scripture: Luke 16:19-31.

Responding to Jesus
44:36

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. Luke gives us a detailed portrait of Jesus, who he is and what he has done. Even though people saw Jesus in person, some of them didn’t get it — they didn’t understand. We have all of this information about Jesus, but how do make sense of it? How do you respond to him? 

Everything you need to respond to Jesus in a life-transforming way is right here in Luke 23. We see all of the people rejecting him — both the leaders and the common people, the Jews and the Gentiles. This is everybody. We’re going to study four groups who rejected Jesus and then highlight three things: who gets Jesus, how they get Jesus, and how we can do the same.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 27, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 4; The Kingdom of God." Scripture: Luke 23:33-56.

Doubt, Joy and Power
35:26

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. We come to the end of the book that describes multiple scenes of Jesus interacting with different groups of people after his death, burial, and resurrection. Specifically in Luke 24:36-49, he appears to his disciples and helps them understand the meaning of the events that had happened. 

Jesus does four things in this passage that change the lives of his disciples forever, and because he’s the risen Jesus, he can do the very same things to us right now. 1) He answers the doubts of their minds; 2) he satisfies the needs of their hearts by eating with them; 3) he reforges the direction of their lives by sending them, and 3) he shows them his hand and his feet.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 20, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 3; Seeing Him." Scripture: Luke 24:36-49.

The Hour of Darkness
45:26

Today’s passage comes from Luke and it describes the night in which Jesus was betrayed. There is a theme to this passage: darkness and night. When the authorities come to take Jesus away, he tells them in verse 53 “this is your hour — when darkness reigns.” It could be translated as “this the hour of the authority of darkness.” The physical darkness is a representation of something deeper that happens.

There’s a darkness that blinds the eyes, and then there’s another kind of darkness that blinds the heart and the mind and the soul. It’s a spiritual darkness. Jesus has come to redeem us from this darkness. There are three incidents that we’re going to look at; the first two tell us about our condition and the third tells us what Jesus has come to do about it. First, the soldiers reject him; then, the disciples reject him; and lastly, the Father rejects him. These are necessary for Jesus to do the redeeming work that he was sent to do.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 13, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 3; Seeing Him." Scripture: Luke 22:39-64.

The Upper Room
45:07

One of the great questions of history is, “Why in the world did the early Christians adopt the cross as their main symbol?” Do you realize why that is so odd? On the cross, Jesus died at age 33 in agony, abandoned by everyone in his life. All the other founders of religions died old and “successful.” For example, Buddha lived to be 80 years old and achieved enlightenment. And Muhammad lived into his 60s during which he united all of Arabia under one faith. There is a vivid contrast with the picture of Jesus. Why in the world would anyone look at Jesus dying on a cross and say, “That’s the life I want to live. That’s the one I want to follow. That’s the faith for me”?

On the night before he died, Jesus gave his disciples the explanation of the meaning of his death in the upper room. When it was all over, they remembered it and they accepted it. It changed them. If you see what Jesus says to them and you take it in, it will change you too. There are four things which are life-changing about Jesus’ death: 1) it is the center of history; 2) it is the foundation for a radically new, profoundly different community; 3) it is the solution to the great mystery; and 4) it is appropriated personally.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 6, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 3; Seeing Him." Scripture: Luke 22:14-34; Deuteronomy 26:5-9; Deuteronomy 16:3; Luke 2.

The Robbers’ House
43:21

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus described in the gospel of Luke. The first part of the gospel (the first nine chapters) has to do mainly with the question, “Who is this Jesus?” The second part of the gospel of Luke (the nine chapters in the middle) addresses the question, “What does it mean to follow Jesus?” Now we’re going to look at a passage from the last part of Luke which gives us an existential encounter with Jesus. 

In Luke 19, the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem marks the beginning of the last week of Jesus’ life. The central theme here is that Jesus is king. We’re going to look at four ways that he reigns: the real king, the transformational king, the paradoxical King, and the confrontational King.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 30, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 3; Seeing Him." Scripture: Luke 19:28-40; 45-48.

Work and Rest
43:01

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus described in the gospel of Luke. Luke gives us many of Jesus’ teachings on what it means to be a disciple. In short, a disciple is one who applies the gospel to absolutely every single area of life.

In today’s passage from Luke 6, we learn about Sabbath rest. God gives us rest from our labors – it is a gift and a blessing. It is a way of keeping us healthy and protecting us from being overwhelmed by our work. God himself modeled it for us when creating the universe. Let’s look at it more closely: Why do we need it? Where do we get it? How do we do it?

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 23, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 2; Following Him." Scripture: Luke 6:1-11.

Forgiveness
41:05

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus described in the gospel of Luke. As Jesus is on the road to Jerusalem described in the middle of Luke, Jesus gives us instruction for how to be a disciple. In today’s passage in Luke 17, Jesus teaches us that being a disciple means living a life of habitual, perpetual forgiveness. It means having a forgiving spirit. 

Jesus’ teaching is so startling that his hearers respond with “increase our faith.” They are saying, “You haven’t given us enough faith to do this.” But Jesus says yes I have. There are three questions for today: Why do we need a forgiving spirit? What is it? And how do we get it?

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 16, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 2; Following Him." Scripture: Luke 17:3-19.

Money
43:48

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus described in the gospel of Luke. Jesus says in today’s passage that his disciples should have a particular regard for money and possessions. In other words, coming into a relationship with Jesus will change how one sees the world, including money and possessions.

Jesus says, “Watch out for greed.” Greed is a money sickness that can take over one’s life — it’s like a spiritual cancer. It’s something money causes, but it doesn’t necessarily have to come from money. It can take over someone who is wealthy or poor. There are three headings under which we will learn about this sickness: how to beware of money blindness, understand the nature of money sickness, and how to acquire money wellness.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 9, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 2; Following Him." Scripture: Luke 12:13-34.

Prayer
43:28

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus described in the gospel of Luke. The passage comes from chapters 10 and 13 which help us answer the question, “What does it mean to be his disciple” In verse 39 we learn that Mary sat at the Lord’s feet which is the technical way of saying that she was a disciple of a rabbi. Now historians will tell us it was extremely rare for a rabbi at that time to take a woman as a formal disciple, but Jesus does it. From a modern point of view, here’s a woman being told, “Send her back into the kitchen; she has no place at your feet as a disciple,” and Jesus says, “Yes, she does.” 

Through Mary we learn something for all of us. Disciples are called into an extraordinarily personal relationship with Jesus. Let’s look more closely at these two questions: What is that extraordinary personal relationship, and secondly, how can we cultivate it?

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 2, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 2; Following Him." Scripture: Luke 10:38-11:13.

Neighbors
45:11

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus described in the gospel of Luke. The passage comes from the second half of chapter 10 which helps us answer the question, “What does it mean to be his disciple?” 

The first part of chapter 10 says all disciples are given the gospel as a message which is to be communicated to everyone. In this last part of the chapter, we’re given the other side of being a disciple; instead of just being called messengers, we’re also called to be neighbors. We’re called to meet the needs of all the people around us, whether they believe the message or not. There are four things we learn: 1) it is required, 2) it has magnitude, 3) the motivation for doing it, and 4) how to do it.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 16, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 2; Following Him." Scripture: Luke 10:25-37.

Messengers
41:19

The first nine chapters of Luke are mainly concerned with the question, “Who is Jesus?” Starting in chapter 9 and stretching over the next few chapters, the theme switches, as it were, and asks, “If he’s the Son of God, how should we live?” 

The general answer is that we should be disciples, but there are many facets to being a disciple. Starting in chapter 10, Jesus gives us specific ways we are to be his disciples. Today we’re going to look more specifically at being a messenger. Disciples are messengers. Every disciple of Jesus is given a message to publicly communicate, urging everyone to believe it. There are three things Jesus gives every single disciple: a mission, a message, and a motivation. 

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 16, 2003. Series: "The Meaning of Jesus Part 2; Following Him." Scripture: Luke 10:1-21.

What is Truth? An Open Forum
47:21

“What is truth?” is the famous question Pilate asks Jesus before the crucifixion. Did he sincerely believe that truth was something that could be grasped or was he a skeptic that doubted the existence of truth? “We must understand Pilate to understand ourselves, for he may have represented the very modern view that truth is after all a relative and subjective affair, an agreed-upon convention, a matter of expedience — and that therefore we are justified in doing anything that seems expedient, even as Pilate” (Joy Davidman, Smoke on the Mountain). 

The Gallup poll reports 66 percent of Americans say there is no such thing as absolute truth, but historic Christianity says there is — moral absolutes, absolute truths, truths about God and eternal things that everybody and every culture needs to bow to and submit to. Let’s look at it more closely under these three headings: 1) how we deny truth, 2) why we deny it, and 3) how we use it anyway (that you can’t avoid living your life as if there is absolute truth). 

This open forum with Dr. Timothy Keller took place at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 5, 1995. Series: "Redeemer Open Forums".

The End of History
43:06

The Apostles’ Creed is one of the oldest summaries of the basic beliefs of Christianity. Today’s sermon comes from a series that follows the outline of the Creed, wherein it says, “I believe in the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.” 

Ancient cultures and philosophies and religions all believed that history was cyclical and that it wasn’t going anywhere. However, the very idea that history is making progress and that we’re moving toward an end goal comes from the Bible. We’re going to look more closely at the original readers of today’s passage from Revelation: 1) the hope they needed, 2) the hope they got, and 3) how you and I can take hold of that hope ourselves.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 22, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Revelation 21:1-6; 22:1-5.

The Church
43:28

The Apostles’ Creed is one of the oldest summaries of the basic beliefs of Chrsitianity. Today’s sermon on the church comes from a series that follows the outline of the Creed. As Christians we believe in the importance of the church that was established by Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago.

We’ve chosen a passage from Ephesians 2 that gives us one very important truth about the church that is very relevant for our world in which there is so much disunity. Here it is, the members of the church get both the resources and the power to get along with people who are radically different than themselves. There are three things that we will highlight in this passage: 1) the gospel creates a supernatural community; 2) this is through spiritual heart surgery; and 3) this results in a radical new identity. 

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 15, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Ephesians 2:11-22.

The Holy Spirit
39:49

Today’s sermon on the Holy Spirit comes from a larger series on the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. When it comes to the Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit —without a doubt, the Holy Spirit is the most mysterious of the three. It’s the one person we know the least about. 

There’s no better place in the Bible to learn about the Holy Spirit than John 14–17. This is Jesus’ Upper Room Discourse which takes place the night before he’s going to die.  When you know you’re speaking to people you love and you’ll never speak to them again, you don’t talk about the weather, but you go to the subjects you think are the most crucial for them. It’s intriguing that some of Jesus’ last words to his disciples are filled with teaching about the Holy Spirit, which shows how important it is. Let’s look more closely at Jesus’ Discourse under three headings: who the Spirit is, what the Spirit does, and how to receive what the Spirit gives.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 8, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: John 14:15-26.

Salvation
33:11

Today’s sermon on salvation comes from a larger series on the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. In this series, we’re following the outline of the Apostles’ Creed, the oldest summary of biblical doctrine. It says, “I believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.” This is encapsulated by the doctrine of salvation. 

We’re going to do a survey of all that the Bible says about salvation in Jesus Christ, which is actually right here in our passage from Ephesians. Paul says that Jesus Christ has “blessed us” with “every spiritual blessing.” This is what we mean by salvation. We’re going to learn how we get every spiritual blessing, what those spiritual blessings are, why we can have those spiritual blessings, and how to know whether you have them. 

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 1, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Ephesians 1:3-10.

Incarnation
33:31

Today we’re going to look at a fundamental belief of the Christian faith — the doctrine of the incarnation. It’s a belief that’s unique to the Christian faith, that the eternal, infinite God became a human being in Jesus Christ — a physical, limited, vulnerable, mortal being in history. The implications of this doctrine are vast and many, but we’re going to focus on something specifically astounding in Philippians 2. 

Paul takes a basic practical human problem, the problem of fighting, and he brings to bear on it the doctrine of the incarnation. He says in order to solve the problem you need to understand the incarnation. So let’s see how he does it in these three parts: 1) the heart that fights, 2) the heart that makes peace, and 3) he shows us how to get that kind of peaceful heart.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 25, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Philippians 2:1-11.

Sin (2015)
37:57

We’re looking at the basic beliefs of the Christian faith, and there’s no way to do that without getting to what the Bible says is wrong with us. It’s really obvious to everyone that human beings can do an awful lot of very bad things, really evil things. But why? Sociologists will say unjust social conditions and that oppression will result in violence. But the real problem is what made the oppressors oppressors. The Bible tells us that the root problem is inside of us. 

Have you faced yourself? Do you know what’s in your heart? Do you know what you’re capable of? If you grasp the biblical doctrine of sin, you will be forced to answer all of these questions. Today we’re going to look more closely at the story of Adam and Eve in the garden and learn about 1) the root of sin, 2) the essence of sin, 3) the signs of sin, and 4) the solution for sin.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 18, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Genesis 2:16-17; 3:1-9.

God (2015)
43:41

This sermon is part of a series on the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. The outline we’re using is the Apostles’ Creed, and today we come to God. Many people believe in God, but they don’t know him personally. 

Moses believed in God, but it really wasn’t until the event with the burning bush in Exodus 3 that Moses came to see who God was and encountered him. The central metaphor is fire in this famous story. God could have appeared as anything, but he chose fire. This is very significant because it shows us three things: God is a real God; he can be known; and he is a God who seeks and sends.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 4, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Acts 17:16-34.

I Believe
36:38

In the Western world every year we hear more and more people say something like, “I don’t believe in God. I don’t have religious beliefs. I don’t have a religious preference.” This is a growing sentiment in our world today. So what is the future of Christian belief in a world in which fewer and fewer believe?

We’re going to answer this question by going to Acts 17 where Paul gives a sermon to Athens, which was the intellectual center of the Roman world. It was famous as being a place where the philosophers didn’t believe in the gods anymore. It was very skeptical and it was not unlike some parts of our skeptical society today. We’re going to learn three things: first, everyone is deeply religious; secondly, your beliefs must have a God-sized God big enough for your moral intuitions; and thirdly, your beliefs must have a heart-shaped hope that can fulfill your deepest desires.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 4, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Acts 17:16-34.

The Bible and Finality
42:04

It’s very typical to hear people in our Western culture say something like, “There are many good things in the Bible, absolutely. But there are also things in the Bible that are really outdated. There are things in the Bible we can’t accept anymore, because we have new insights.” How do we respond to that? Well, the place to go in the Bible to is the book of Hebrews. 

As we look at what Hebrews is saying, we’re going to learn three things about the finality of truth in the Bible: 1) Jesus brings God’s final word, 2) this creates a living, dynamic relationship with God, and 3) this is because of the unsurpassable beauty of who he is and what he has done.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 27, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Hebrews 1:1-4; 4:6-13.

The Bible and Experience
44:06

Nothing is more foundational to the way in which you live than how you regard the Bible — how you approach it and how you understand it. This has a direct influence on how you actually live. When the Bible tells you something happened, it really happened. This has to do with the truth of the Bible. But even if you believe it, what role should that have in your life? This has to do with the authority of the Bible. 

Today we’re going to look at the authority of the Bible in the second letter of Peter. There are three things to learn: why the Bible has authority, why that’s a good thing, and how that authority works in our lives.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 20, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: 2 Peter 1:12-21.

The Bible and History
34:28

There’s nothing more foundational to who you are as a Christian than how you regard the Bible itself. How do you approach the Bible? How do you understand the Bible? These are fundamental questions to everything else you do as a Christian.

Today we’re looking at the bookends of the book of Luke, which is one of the four gospels in the New Testament. At the very beginning and the very end, there are important statements that help us understand what the Bible is and what it’s about. We’re going to learn that 1) the Bible is truth, 2) it’s truth about a man, and 3) it’s truth not just for the mind but for the heart.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 13, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Luke 1:1-4, Luke 24:25-32.

The True Bridegroom
38:35

All the Hebrew prophets in the Old Testament prophesied the coming of the Messiah. Christians believe that this Messiah they prophesied was born at Christmas and his name is Jesus. 

Today we’re going to look at what Hosea said about the coming Messiah in chapter 3. He tells us about the “one who is to come” through the account of his messed-up marriage. There are three things this text teaches us. First, our relationship with God is like a marriage. Second, our relationship with God is like a bad marriage. Third, God healed his marriage and this was at a cost.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 2, 2007. Series "Jesus of the Prophets". Scripture: Hosea 3:1-5; 11:4-11; Jeremiah 2-4; Ezekiel 16; Isaiah 54; Matthew 9:14-15.

Marriage Supper of the Lamb
47:55

In Ephesians 5, Paul says, “This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.” This verse is teaching us that there are some things we would never know about marriage if we don’t know about how you relate to Christ by faith. Conversely, there are things we would never know about our relationship with Christ if we didn’t know about marriage. 

In a sense, one teaches you about the other, and you can’t completely understand one without understanding the other. We’re going to look more closely at what marriage teaches us about our relationship with Jesus and what our relationship with Jesus teaches us about marriage.

Marriage as Completion: Gender Roles (Part 1)
46:04

Christianity, depending on the culture it’s sitting in, can be either liberal or conservative in its appearance. That’s the way it ought to be. If Christianity is revealed truth from God, then it doesn’t arise out of one side of the spectrum or the other. If you come to the Bible saying, “Is this left or right or sort of halfway in between?” you’ll always be disappointed because it’s not from down here.

Being a male and being a female are overlapping but distinguishable ways of being human. They’re not identical. Therefore, there are roles. There are distinct obligations and gifts and callings that belong to women and belong to men. We learn three things from today’s passage: there are roles, why there are roles, and what those roles are.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 29, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

Marriage as Completion: One Flesh
39:44

In the Bible, the word flesh doesn’t simply mean your body. It doesn’t simply mean what the English word flesh means, which always means simply skin, sinew, blood, and guts. Actually, there’s a place in the Bible where God says, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh…” That doesn’t mean, “I will pour out my Spirit on everybody’s body.” It means, “I’ll pour out my Spirit on all people.” The word flesh means a person. When it says the two will become one flesh, it says you’ll be one person. You’re really no longer the same two people, but you’re a third entity. 

How is it that this one-fleshness can be developed? There are three ways it can happen and three reasons it doesn’t happen. If you do these three things properly, it develops deep oneness. If you fail to do them or if you do them wrongly, it creates something different altogether, basically a business partnership.

Marriage as Friendship
37:22

Marriage is not romance garnished with friendship. It’s not in essence romance and attraction, and friendship is thrown in as a wonderful little option, a wonderful little plus if you can get it. Rather, marriage is friendship with romance garnishing and flavoring it.

Furthermore, friendship is not just a feeling of affection. Friendship is a deep oneness that comes from two people journeying toward a common horizon. First, the oneness; secondly, the walking together, the interacting; and thirdly, the common horizon or goal you’re going to.

Marriage as Priority and Friendship
47:24

Marriage is many things. Marriage is glorious. Marriage is hard. It’s blood, sweat and tears. It’s defeats, and it’s victories. It’s almost everything except sweet. We’re going to see the Bible’s view of marriage is completely realistic. 

The topic we now come to is the purpose of marriage. We’ve looked at the power and the definition, the priority of marriage. What’s the purpose of it? The purpose of marriage is friendship, companionship. Your spouse has to be your best friend.

So far, we’ve only looked at the first two. We now want to get to the third: the priority of marriage.

Overview: Marriage as Commitment
48:10

A person who understands the gospel–who has the gospel in his or her blood–is a person who is strong and yet humble, and therefore, out of reverence for Christ submits and is able to serve other people, putting the needs of other people ahead of their own. This is the basis of a marriage. In today’s passage, Paul gives us not just the power of marriage, but also its definition.

Marriage as Ministry Power
35:39

Marriage, contrary to what a lot of people say, is not something a bunch of people around a cave-fire in the Late Bronze Age suddenly thought up. According to the Scripture, marriage is a divine invention. 

In this passage, we’re going to see first that the essence of marriage is a covenant, secondly, that the purpose of marriage is companionship, and lastly, the priority of marriage has to be number one.

Finishing Well
46:45

When Paul got to Rome for his trial, he was not put in a dungeon, but he was put under house arrest. He was in a rented home, and therefore, he was able to have guests and have people come and go. Therefore, he was free to do what his job was, to proclaim the gospel. 

What I want to do is look at the very end of Paul’s life. It’s only natural since we’ve been following him all along to say, “How did he end? What did happen?” How did Paul finish? He finished well. Why did Paul finish well? Because of five perspectives Paul kept all through his life that enabled him to basically live his life with every fiber of his being and finish well, finish strong. 

What are those five perspectives? Those five perspectives Paul always kept in mind were life is a struggle, death is an adventure, history is a masterpiece, the gospel can’t be stopped, and ultimately in the end you only need one thing.

The Lord in the Storm
39:35

The last chapters of the book of Acts could all be called “The Sufferings of Paul,” because it’s just one bad thing happening to Paul after another. He is caught in a storm on his way to Rome. He has appealed to Rome and the soldiers have him in custody, and the sailors, of course, are running the boat.

Now he’s in a storm, and everyone is afraid for their lives. It says they had gone for days in this situation. Down in verse 20 it says, “Neither sun nor stars appeared for many days. The storm continued raging. We finally gave up all hope of being saved.”

The storm, which was another part of Paul’s suffering, represents all suffering. All the suffering we get in life could be called a storm. They’re all like storms. Watching Paul deal with his storm teaches us something about how we can deal with all storms, all suffering, all troubles, when they come in. I would like you to notice the paradox, the purpose, and the presence in storms.

Persuading the King
43:08

What we have here is Paul on trial. He had been charged with sedition, causing a riot, undermining the public peace. He had been charged with heresy. 

At the very top of chapter 26, Paul gives a defense. He tells the story of his conversion, meeting Jesus on the road to Damascus. But it’s here at the end that Paul shows the real goal of his speech, what he’s really after, and it’s surprising. 

He’s not really out to defend himself, because if his primary goal was to get himself off the hook, he would never have made the bold move he makes. He would have played it safe, but he doesn’t. What was Paul’s goal, how does he get to that goal, and where does he get the power and poise and boldness to try that?

The Gospel and Courage
39:08

Our passage comes from Acts 22 where Paul is facing a hostile audience and one life-threatening situation after another. In a way, there’s one overall theme, which is God can bring good out of evil and can show the power of the gospel through it.

We will all inevitably face some kind of danger in life. How will you face it? How does your faith prepare you for it? We’re going to look at courage in this passage and we’ll try to find some clues as to how we can get the same kind of courage that Paul has.

The Gospel Ministry
48:17

In our passage today, Paul, after having ministered in tremendous ways in Ephesus for three years, is now taking leave to go to Jerusalem. He assembles the elders, who are the leaders of the church, to say farewell to them. 

Usually when this passage is taught, it’s taught to give us job descriptions of ministers or elders, or leaders. But I think it’s helpful to look at this from a different angle because it’s actually addressed to Christians. There are many speeches and sermons in Acts, but this is the only place where we actually have a sustained address given to Christians about how they should be the church.

We’re going to study this under four headings: truth, tears, ties, and not missing the forest for the trees.

The Hero of Heroes
36:24

Our passage comes from Acts chapter 5 where things begin to look dim for the followers of Christ. Beginning around this time and spanning to around AD 300, the history of the early church is filled with persecution and suffering. Christians were systematically imprisoned, plundered, tortured, and killed. In this particular incident in Acts, we see Christians facing danger and the possibility of death with heroic courage.

Where did they get that heroic courage? We’re going to focus on the reply of the apostles in just four verses, 29-32. There are three questions to guide our time together: 1) What was that heroic courage? 2) Where did it come from? 3) How can we get it?

The Word and the Spirit
41:18

Acts is about the origins of Christianity. Whenever you go to the origins, you learn something about what genuine Christianity is — authentic, original, real Christianity. That is important because many people base, to some degree, their non-belief on what it was like to be a “Christian” earlier in life or on what other “Christians” are like. 

If you ask yourself every day the question, “Am I a real Christian?,” it will drive you nuts. On the other hand, if you never ask that question, that’s not healthy either. Let’s ask the question on the basis of this text by looking at four marks of a real Christian: 1) you serve God consistently, especially in suffering, 2) you are getting to know God deliberately 3) you experience God periodically, and 4) you exhibit God generously.

The First Miracle
37:03

Our passage today is on the first miracle the apostles perform after the resurrection of Jesus, which is at the very beginning of the Christian church. If you want to learn about the topic of suffering, you go to the book of Job or a lot of other places in the Bible that seem to deal with it more directly. But this passage is actually a lot about suffering. 

This miracle, in many ways, is typical of so many of the other miracles of the New Testament done by Jesus or by apostles. If you understand this one, in some ways you’ll be able to understand all of the miracles in the New Testament. We’re going to see that it points 1) upward, 2) forward, 3) inward, and 4) downward. This is the grid for us to learn about suffering and to see the meaning of New Testament miracles.

The First Church
21:04

Our passage from Acts 2 is about the birth of the Christian church. We’re going to look at how the birth of the church is intimately related to the birth of Christ: Christmas. In many ways, what happened at Christmas explains what happens in the early church; and what happens in the early church explains what Christmas is about. When the early Christians began to understand the reality of Christmas, they began to practice Christmas. They brought ideals into the world that no one had ever thought of, because it was based on their new idea of ultimate reality. 

First of all, we’re going to see what made the earliest Christian community so different from the culture surrounding them and secondly, what the source of that difference was.

33:54

Our passage is the first Christian sermon given by Peter on the day of Pentecost. It’s important that we consider the entire sermon for the context, but we’re going to focus our time on the last four verses (36–39) and what it means to be a Christian. 

How do you become a Christian? In a sense, when you get to the end of the sermon, you have a little compendium on how to do this, but there are four things that come into play. In verse 36 we learn about mind and grace, in verse 37 about heart, and in verses 38–39 we’ll learn about life.

The Descent of the Spirit
40:22

We’re going to look at a very famous episode in the book of Acts today, the day of Pentecost. What makes this unique is the descent of the Holy Spirit. There’s a sense in which the Old Testament people of God became the New Testament people of God because the Holy Spirit came down with a transforming power that had never been known heretofore. In a certain sense, the people of God are getting rebooted, relaunched — it’s the fullness of the Spirit.

We need to ask the same question the crowd asked: “What does this mean?” It will take several sermons to answer this question, but today we’re going to cover four things that being filled with the Spirit means: outside power, inner wonder, a universal message, and a new man on the mountain.

The Ascension of Jesus
38:32

The book of Acts is about how the earliest church was essentially launched into a cosmopolitan and urban setting just like ours today. Our church has never been here just for convinced, believing Christians, but it’s also here for New Yorkers who aren’t sure what they believe (or who don’t believe in Christianity). Acts is one of a few books in the New Testament that is pretty specifically written for skeptical people.

There are images the Bible gives us to get across a fundamental change in our relationship with God that has come because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ — they are irreplaceable and nonnegotiable images. Here’s what they are. We are told that when Jesus Christ ascended, he didn’t just go up, but he ascended to the throne — the throne of the universe, and that means three things: 1) relational intimacy, 2)  historical strategy, and 3) transforming advocacy.

The Final Hour
40:11

Today’s passage comes from the Passion narrative found in the book of Matthew. Matthew is not just a reporter; he’s a teacher. He doesn’t just tell us that Jesus died, but he always builds the narratives around certain statements and sayings that interpret why Jesus died. It’s very typical today for people to say, “Well, the cross might mean something for you. You interpret it your way. I interpret it my way.” But the gospel writers don’t leave that as an option; they are very clear to let Jesus interpret the events that are happening. 

In the last moment of Jesus’ life, there are three cries in the dark, and each tells us something about the meaning of the cross (vv.46, 50, 54). The first cry solves our modern dilemma; the second solves a human dilemma;  and the third solves a personal dilemma.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 16, 2000. Series "St. Matthew's Passion; The World's Last Night". Scripture: Matthew 27:45-56.

The World Will Hate You
41:26

We’ve been going through the book of Matthew looking at the big blocks of teaching Jesus gives his disciples for how he wants his followers to live. While the Sermon on the Mount was mainly about how Christian disciples would relate to each other, starting with this passage, Jesus turns around and says, “But now here’s how I want my disciples to relate to the world.” 

This passage was Jesus teaching on how to move into a new town or a new neighborhood or a new city as Christian disciples and begin to do mission, begin to do Christian ministry. The whole passage is about, first of all, how we are to share the compassion of Jesus (verses 5–15); secondly, how we are to share the offense of Jesus (verses 16–23); and thirdly, where we are to get the power to do that (verses 24 and 25).

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on July 1, 2012. Series "Savior and Teacher - A Study of Matthew ". Scripture: Matthew 10:5-25.

Three Ways to Live
39:44

We’ve come to the end of the Sermon on the Mount. It would be very profitable if we went through and took each of these metaphors Jesus ends the sermon with. You notice there are always two. There are two gates. There are two roads. There are two trees. There are two homes built on two different foundations.

How many ways are there to live? Are there two ways to live, two paths, two trees, two gates? Yes and no. This is one of the most hard-hitting parts of the Bible. It is pretty astonishing. In fact, let’s get right to it. There’s a call to discernment, a call to narrow spaciousness, and a call to action, to decision.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on June 24, 2012. Series "Savior and Teacher - A Study of Matthew ". Scripture: Matthew 7:13-27.

Rules for Relationships
37:23

When you get to Matthew 7, which is the last chapter in the Sermon on the Mount, the most famous sermon in history, there is a lot of intriguing stuff. There are ludicrous things in there. There are strange things in here. This isn’t so much inspiring as it is a convicting and brilliant piece of teaching.

Verses 1–6 are talking about relationships, the kinds of relationships Jesus Christ wants us to have in the Christian community. Let’s look at the first six verses and see the kind of relationships Jesus Christ wants us to have, the kind of heart you need in order to conduct those relationships, and where to get that heart.

Treasures
35:51

We continue to look at the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ outline of what he wants his people to live like in the world. Put another way, Jesus says here that if we take the essential message of the Christian faith, the gospel, and actually live it out, it will not only make us different individuals, radically different people, but it’ll turn us into a counterculture. It’ll turn us into a completely new kind of human society.

He’s now talking about money. Let’s notice three things about money from his teaching. He’s going to tell us here how money can blind us, how money can reveal what controls us, and then he shows us how to break the power of money in our lives.

Prayer and the Poor
39:26

We’re going through the Sermon on the Mount each week, and now we come to the most famous part of the most famous sermon in history, which is the Lord’s Prayer. The thing we have working against us with the Lord’s Prayer is the familiarity. We know it too well. 

Let’s see what Jesus tells us here about the foundation for prayer, the substance of prayer, and then the key to having a rightly founded, substantial, effective prayer life. The foundation for it, the substance of it, and the key to it.

Integrity
34:44

We’re going through the Sermon on the Mount and we have Jesus Christ telling us how he wants us to live. He has dealt with the commandment on murder and adultery, and now he’s dealing with the commandment on lying. He’s going to talk to us about integrity, truth, and honesty.

We have as big a problem in our culture with this. Therefore, let’s take a look and see what Jesus says about integrity. He gives us the principle behind integrity and tells us something about the practice of integrity. And finally, he hints at a problem we all have with integrity, and how to solve it.

Love and Lust
36:02

Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount, is telling us how he wants us to live in every area of life. Love and sex is one of those areas of life, and so he gets to that here. When you first read it, it would be natural to have a negative response, because on the surface it looks like Jesus is saying, “If you have sexual desire, you’re going to hell.”

It would be very natural for somebody to say, “Aha! See? That’s that negative view of sex everybody says Christians have.” But that’s a great misunderstanding. I’m going to show you that the biblical or Christian understanding of sex, while it is very different from that which the culture gives you, nevertheless is one of the most attractive things about Christianity. There are three things we see here: the integrity of sex, the challenge of lust, and the future of love.

Law and Love
35:53

In the Sermon on the Mount, whenever Jesus talks about how we should live, he always also talks about how we get the power to live that way. Jesus is never just concerned about behavior. He’s also concerned about the heart.

Here we have such a nice, small, compact text that gives us the whole picture. In these six verses, Jesus tells you three things. He says, “Here is what you must do.” Secondly, he says, “You’ll never do it.” Thirdly, he says, “But in and through me, you can.” I believe that’s the theme of the Bible, those three things.

The Witness of the Kingdom
38:47

The Beatitudes make up the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount, and it defines what it means to be a Christian. A Christian is someone who has a radically new relationship with God through belief in the gospel. The Beatitudes is essentially a list of the characteristics of someone with this new relationship with God.

Today’s passage shifts to focus on the Christian’s relationship to the world. In other words, if you have a relationship with God (described in vv. 1–10), then that will mean you will have this relationship to the world (vv. 11-16). Jesus says that if you are living a Christian life, then in the world you will be salt (v. 13), you will be light (vv. 14–16), and you will be hurt. Let’s tease these out of the passage in more detail.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 22, 2012. Series "Savior and Teacher - A Study of Matthew ". Scripture: Matthew 5:11-16.

The Norms of the Kingdom
37:12

We read in the New Testament about the life of Jesus and how he brings us new life. Now it’s natural to ask if we’ve been given this new life, then how should we live? Our passage today in Matthew, which is part of the Sermon on the Mount, is one of the best places to get Jesus’ main teaching on how to live.

This is one of the most famous pieces of literature in the history of the human race. Because it is so rich, we need to pay close attention to every part, every verse and word. But today we’re going to look at an overview under three headings: the glory of the Sermon on the Mount, the terror of the Sermon on the Mount, and the hero of the Sermon on the Mount. You won’t understand the Sermon on the Mount unless you understand these three things.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 15, 2012. Series "Savior and Teacher - A Study of Matthew ". Scripture: Matthew 5:1-10.

The Resurrection
34:35

Matthew gives us one of the four direct descriptions of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are two important questions for us as we read an account like this: Did it really happen? And what does it mean?

Our culture is so dubious of miracles and the idea of resurrection already so the first question is very important to consider with that in mind. But it’s not just for those who are skeptical, it’s for all readers — we all have to come to grips with this question. Secondly, if the resurrection of Jesus did happen, what does it mean for us? It’s not just a naked historical fact like other facts of history that you just believe with your mind. Let’s look more closely at both of these questions and how answering them will totally change the course of your life.

The Crucifixion
28:22

The passage today is on the crucifixion, which is one of the most important events in Jesus’ life. We’re going to zoom in on verse 46: “… Jesus cried out in a loud voice … ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’” How do we understand Jesus’ cry? And what does it mean for us today?

Let’s look more closely at the cry, the word why, the word my, and Jesus’ question taken as a whole. The cry points to the fact of Jesus’ death. The word why points to the reason for his death. The word my points to the accomplishments of his death. The question taken as a whole shows us something about his motive for doing it.

The Last Temptation
38:49

Our passage today takes place the night before Jesus is going to die. He has just had his last supper, and he goes out into the garden of Gethsemane with three of his disciples. Jesus’ career began with a temptation in the wilderness, and now it essentially ends with a great temptation in a garden.

Jesus goes to the garden to pray and he is described as “sorrowful and troubled” (Luke uses “agony”). This is an important clue to understand why Jesus died and how his death affects our lives today. We’re going to consider two questions that will help us dig a little deeper into this passage: Why the magnitude of Christ’s agony? Why the timing of it?

Into Jerusalem
34:25

The Gospels give us all kinds of events that help paint a biographical picture of Jesus. Today we’re going to look at one very famous episode: the triumphal entry to Jerusalem. This is also called Palm Sunday because the crowd used palm branches to welcome Jesus to the city (John 12:13).

There are important details in this passage that are deeply symbolic. They show us something about who Jesus is and what he came to do. It teaches us three things about his kingship: he is a confrontational king; he is a counter-intuitive king; and he is the coming king.

Our Work and Our Character
40:50

How does the gospel affect your work? How does it influence your work and vocation? Our particular passage is not so much a high, lofty sermon by Paul, but it is more of a down-to-earth teaching. It’s not inspirational, but it’s more practical. As a result, it’s incredibly useful.

We’re first going to consider the historical context. After seeing the background, we’re going to highlight two practical principles and learn about the power to do them.

A New Church for the City
35:07

What does it mean to take the gospel out of your private life, out of the church, and into the world? It means sharing the gospel with your friends. It means letting the gospel affect your work. It also means that we’ll go into the world caring about mercy and justice.

Paul was sent as a missionary to Macedonia where he planted a church in Philippi — a large city. Our passage today is about the conversion stories of three people in that church:  Lydia, the slave girl, and a jailor. We’re going to look at what happened to these individuals, and then we’ll draw some implications for how to take the gospel out into the world.

The Testimony of Justice
39:54

The gospel is intensely personal because it entails a commitment of the whole person to Jesus. And if the whole person is committed to Jesus, that includes one’s private and public life. If this is true, then what happens when we take the gospel out of our private lives and out of the church and out into the world? 

One of the things that happens is that the gospel creates a passion for doing justice in the world. Deuteronomy teaches us many things about justice. We’re going to look at these three headings in chapters 4 and 15: 1) the threefold call by God to us to do justice, 2) the dynamic for doing justice, and 3) doing justice is a testimony to the world.

A Vision for Culture-Making
43:13

What happens when you take the gospel, the basic message of Jesus Christ, out of the church into the world? It has many consequences for our lives, but one of the things that happens is it affects your work and your job. It gives us a different perspective on what work is for, how we should do our work, and it gives our work meaning and significance.

The book of Genesis may be one of the best places to learn about the meaning of our work. 1) It gives us a vision for work; 2) it gives us guardrails for our work; and 3) it gives us a power to do our work.

The Gospel and the Outsider
34:07

Our passage today is really about evangelism. The gospel writer shows Jesus evangelizing a woman, and then, when she figures out who he is, she runs off and evangelizes her friends. This is a wonderful picture of how evangelism works. Christians talk about their faith with others and then they invite others to embrace the faith for themselves.

Many modern people can be skeptical of this idea of evangelism. In a pluralistic society like ours, encouraging others to adopt your beliefs and convictions is not generally welcomed. However, evangelism for Christians, no matter what kind of society we’re in, is both reasonable and necessary. Let’s look at these four things in Jesus’ offer: 1) the freeness of his offer, 2) the greatness of his offer, 3) the process by which he makes the offer, 4) and the singleness of his offer.

The Gospel and the Insider
40:16

What is the gospel’s effect when it’s brought out of the church and into the world? It does many things, but one of them is that it leads to conversions. It has the power to convert individuals from death to life, from darkness to light. 

In today’s passage we see that Jesus describes the gospel message as the “new birth,” which is to be converted or born again. We’re going to look at five points that provide a complete guide to what it means to be born again: 1) who it’s for, 2) where it’s from, 3) what it is, 4) how it’s received, and 5) its effect on your life.

A Community of Justice: Part 2
46:01

In the book of James, we read about how belief in the gospel affects the way we actually live day to day. This is the theme that is found throughout the book. It’s filled with very practical guidelines for what a Christian’s life should look like.  

In today’s passage, James rebukes a particular thing that his readers are doing. He contrasts God’s wisdom with the world’s wisdom — what the Bible calls foolishness. There’s a particular kind of foolishness James condemns and warns us against. Let’s look at it under four headings: 1) the problem we have, 2) the reasons it is a problem, 3) the thing that can make the problem worse, and 4) the thing that can solve the problem.

The book of James is a very practical guide for living the Christian life. If you really believe the basic message of Jesus, then what kind of life will you live? What will your life look like practically? These are the questions that James helps us answer. 

James not only helps us understand things about our own lives, but it also teaches us about the kind of community that the gospel fosters. Our passage today shows us 1) the importance of community between believing Christians, 2) what the main barriers are to that community, and 3) how to break through those barriers.

The book of James is a practical book that gives us instruction for obeying God’s law. It says if you believe the gospel, this is what your life should look like. In today’s passage, we consider how the gospel will affect your speech, your words, and your tongue.

Have you ever noticed that when you go to the doctor for a check-up, the doctor will look  at your tongue to tell what’s going on deep inside? This is essentially what our passage is about. The tongue acts as an indicator for something deeper. Look at what’s on your tongue and you’ll learn an awful lot about your soul and your heart. Let’s look at three things regarding the tongue: 1) the power of words; 2) the poison of words; and 3) the healing of the poison.

James, unlike Paul, doesn’t so much break the gospel apart to show you what it is; James assumes the gospel and shows you what your life will look like if you believe it. The book helps us understand the consequences that the gospel has for how we live our lives. And particularly, we see what those consequences are for our lives in community.

James gives us three things to consider: 1) what kind of community we ought to be; 2) why we ought to be it; and 3) how we can become that kind of community.

A People Under the Word
42:31

The book of James is a very practical book that gives us clear direction on how to live the Christian life. It asks these questions, “If you have had an encounter with God through belief in Christ, what will your life look like on the ground? How does belief in Christ make a difference in real life?” That’s what the book of James is about.

This particular text tells us something very important. If you have a new and living relationship with God, then you will have a new and living relationship with God’s Word.  This relationship with God’s Word is marked by three things: 1) you’ll be humbled by the Word; 2) you’ll be shaped by the Word; and 3) you’ll be liberated by the Word.

A Society of Suffering
37:34

The book of James is called Wisdom Literature in the New Testament, which means that the book is very practical. It has a high view of God’s law and an ethical focus that runs throughout each chapter. 

We’re considering the question, “What’s the vision of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York?” Let’s look at three things we learn from this passage in James about the topic of suffering: what we face, how we can face it, and who we face it with.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 22, 2009. Series "The Gospel in Community: The Book of James". Scripture: James 1:1-18.

The Gospel and Idols
40:30

Today both Christians and skeptics of Christianity can struggle to figure out what is real Christianity. Skeptics struggle with certain aspects of what has become known as Christianity, but also, Christians sometimes struggle with those very same things. You have to know what real Christianity is if you’re going to reject it rightly, and you certainly have to know what it is if you’re going to embrace it rightly. The book of Acts shows us real and authentic Christianity.

Chapter 19 is one of the most unusual of all of the accounts in the book. It’s about a riot at Ephesus, which stems from idolatry. We’re going to look at: 1) the pervasiveness of idols, 2) the weakness and power of idols, and 3) the cost of smashing idols.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 12, 2013. Series "Acts: The Gospel in the City". Scripture: Acts 19:23-41.

The Gospel to the Philosophers
41:51

Even after the rise of Rome, Athens was still the intellectual capital of the Greco-Roman world in the first century. For those of us who are English speakers, Athens was like all of the Ivy League schools, plus Oxford and Cambridge, all rolled into one.

The passage today is Paul’s address to the philosophers of the Areopagus, which is on Mars Hill. It’s a rich place in the Bible for analysis, because Paul’s argument is extraordinarily well-crafted and structured. To really get into it, you need a background in various schools of Greek philosophy. You have to understand Greek rhetoric. We’re going to look at three high-level observations in the text: the problems of culture, the greatness of God, and the outrageousness of the resurrection.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 5, 2013. Series "Acts: The Gospel in the City". Scripture: Acts 17:16-34.

How the Gospel Changes Lives: Part 2
42:05

In Acts 16 there are three case studies that show how Jesus and the gospel can really change your life: Lydia, the slave girl, and the Philippian jailer. All of these show the incredible accessibility of the gospel for many types of people. 

We’re going to highlight three things that we learn from these case studies. First, the gospel is for everybody. Everyone needs it. Because it’s true, it’s for everybody. Secondly, the gospel is the single most unifying power on the face of the earth. We see that different races, different social classes, and different personality types can become brothers and sisters in Christ. Lastly, the gospel is true freedom. Paul and Silas being put in chains showed the world what real freedom was.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 28, 2013. Series "Acts: The Gospel in the City". Scripture: Acts 16:20-40.

How the Gospel Changes Lives: Part 1
45:56

The heart of Acts chapter 16 are three wonderful case studies of how God changes three very different people. There’s a woman, there’s a girl, and there’s a man. They are three marvelous examples of how God can work in such remarkably different ways and yet at the same time bring people to the same Christ through the same gospel. This gospel is rich enough and flexible enough for anybody — it can change anybody. 

We’re going to look at the first two case studies and then draw a few lessons: who the people are, how the gospel comes to them, and what the results are.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 21, 2013. Series "Acts: The Gospel in the City". Scripture: Acts 16:1-19.

Claryfying the Gospel
38:32

Acts 15 is not a chapter that is commonly used for sermons. It usually is not something we spend time on because it’s a long theological debate. But this debate teaches us at least four incredibly important things about the gospel itself. Truth matters because truth has consequences for how we live. Secondly, no other religion offers freedom from burdens like Christianity because Christ took on our burdens for us. Next, God uses community to reveal things to us and to teach us about him. Finally, unlike the sacrifices of the Old Testament, we are made pure by the work of Christ. 

We learn the importance of these four things in Acts 15:  gospel accuracy, gospel liberty, gospel community, and gospel purity.

The Gospel for the Pagan
35:30

There’s no doubt if you’re looking to understand what real Christianity is, the book of Acts is the place you should start. Nothing shows us what authentic Christianity is more than the earliest years of the church’s history in the book of Acts. 

The first church was in Jerusalem and the first Christians were Jewish. When the gospel began to spread in the first 13 chapters of Acts, we see a lot of evangelism being done between Jews and God-fearers who already believed the Bible. But in this passage, it’s  the first time we see Christian speakers speaking to polytheists — people who don’t believe the Bible at all. This passage shows us how we should present the gospel in a place where people believe a lot of different things like our modern society. We can learn four things gospel ministry in such a pluralistic setting: love the needy, identify the idols, endure the hardness, and fulfill the longings.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 7, 2013. Series "Acts: The Gospel in the City". Scripture: Acts 14:8-23.

But God Raised Him
27:08

The first recorded sermon by Saint Paul is found in Acts 13. It’s dominated by the subject of Christ’s resurrection. Elsewhere Paul says that without the resurrection of Christ, “our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (1 Cor. 15:14). Over and over again in Acts 13, Paul mentions the resurrection. If the resurrection was preached and believed in the earliest church, then we should too. 

We see here it was preached and believed in two ways: as a fact and as fulfillment. Verse 31 says that there are witnesses to this fact. Verse 32 says what God promised to our ancestors he has fulfilled for us. Fact and fulfillment. Let’s find out what these mean for us today and what the ramifications are for our lives.

The Gospel Church
34:10

The church of Antioch was one of the most important churches in early Christianity. It teaches us many things about Christian outreach, cultural diversity, prayer, discipleship,  and caring for people in need. But we’re going to look at one of the less prominent themes in Acts 11 and 13. It’s one of the keys to gospel ministry that Barnabas shows us in these passages: the ministry of encouragement. It’s a ministry that speaks the truth, but does so in love. It’s an intense, personal, and yet exhortational ministry to people.

As soon as Barnabas shows up and bathes the church with this ministry of encouragement, people start growing. Things start happening. It’s the ministry of truth and love that is the key. Let’s look more closely at what this ministry is and how we get the power to do it with the Holy Spirit.

The Gospel to the Pharisee
43:07

We come to perhaps the most famous conversion story in the history of the world: the conversion of Saul (who becomes Paul). This is the man who sought to do the most harm to the earliest Christians, but then God saves him and he becomes the writer of about a quarter of the New Testament. 

Jesus uses no uncertain terms regarding conversion; in Matthew 18:3 he says unless you’re converted, you cannot enter the kingdom of God. Conversion means that we turn and trust. Conversion stories can vary in nature, but there are certain elements that must be present if you have really been converted. These three elements are: collision (vv. 1-5), darkness (vv. 6-9), and embrace (vv. 17-19).

The Gospel to the African
38:58

The book of Acts is all about the earliest Christianity. It shows us something about the character of the earliest Christianity, especially about where the church got its power. The book of Acts, but also the Bible in general, is bound to surprise you. No matter what your culture or what your class, no matter what conceptions and categories you come to the Bible with, it will smash some of them. 

This story in Acts about Philip and the Ethiopian is the same way. It will show us the inclusivity of Christianity; the exclusivity of Christianity; and the grounding for both. Most people see Christianity as either inclusive or exclusive, but the fact is Christianity is both.

The Gospel to the City
37:53

The book of Acts is about the history of the early church. For the first seven chapters, we only see the gospel in Jerusalem and Judea, but because of the execution of Stephen and then the persecution that ensued, the great body of Christians in Jerusalem were scattered. As they went out the church became a church on mission.

The word mission today is almost everywhere. Everybody has a mission statement. People create personal missions of their own. The word mission comes from the Latin word that means to be sent. Mission characterized the earliest church. We see there were basically four marks to this mission: it was an organic mission, an urban mission, an embodied mission, and a gospel mission.

The Gospel in a Pluralist Society
39:31

What we see in the book of Acts is that the church was born in a pluralistic society — a society with many different beliefs in various gods. Christians made absolute truth claims about the one true God. Not surprisingly, this was not well-received at times (it got the first apostles thrown into jail). There was real opposition in a pluralistic society to these absolute truth claims. 

Christians today are increasingly told we need to get with the times in our modern pluralistic society. We’re told we shouldn’t be making universal claims and that Jesus is the only way to be saved. But Christians have faced the same kind of opposition in the past. Let’s see what we learn from the earliest church under these three headings: the problem with truth claims, the problem with the problem with truth claims, and the solution to the problem.

The Restful Burden
31:57

We’re looking at one of the more well-known parts of Matthew 11. If you’re looking at Christianity, this is a matchless summary. Jesus calls out to those who are burdened and weary, and he gives an invitation to find rest in him. He says, “If you are weary and if you are burdened, you haven’t really yet understood the greatness of what I offer.”

We’re going to look at two things in this passage. First of all, Jesus gives us an analysis: we all have restlessness and we’re all yoked to something. Then he offers to give us certain things in their place instead. He offers himself; he offers himself as the yoke; and he offers himself as rest.

The Grace of Jesus
34:05

Matthew chapter 11 begins with John the Baptist sending a message that reveals John is struggling with who Jesus is. All of Matthew 11 is a response to John the Baptist’s question. Jesus doesn’t say something like, “John, you’ve misunderstood me.” No, instead, he says “John, the things I claim and the things I am are much more outrageous than you have even heard. Let me show you just how outrageous and how offensive I really can be.”

Jesus makes some of the most outrageous and the most offensive statements that have ever been made in verse 27. He says that he is the only way. This claim that made the people of Jesus’ day struggle is also the thing that makes us struggle. Let’s look at what this deeper claim is, why you should believe it, and how you should use it.
