History professor, pastor, and friend of EC Jamie Robertson preached a great word about a tough question:

What can Jesus teach us about our enemies, and what do our enemies teach us about ourselves?

The text:

John 12:12-19

The next day the great crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting,

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord—
   the King of Israel!”
Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it; as it is written:
Look, your king is coming,
   sitting on a donkey’s colt!”

His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written of him and had been done to him. So the crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to testify. It was also because they heard that he had performed this sign that the crowd went to meet him. The Pharisees then said to one another, “You see, you can do nothing. Look, the world has gone after him!”

John 20

Church historian Jamie Robertson preaches a really incredible sermon about Jesus breathing on the disciples, learning to find rest in a busy culture, taming the ego, and how he had a small influence on Brad Pitt’s life… sort of…

Also, apologies but the sermon recording sounds pretty awful. We lost one of the mic’s and blah blah blah… it just didn’t work ok! SORRY! WE’RE TRYING SO HARD! WE DON’T HAVE A HUGE STAFF TEAM OR ANYTHING! WE’RE JUST TRYING TO KEEP THIS PODCAST SHIP AFLOAT!!!

But seriously, it’s not too bad if you listen hard. Just treat it like an art-film that “asks something of you” as a viewer! … it’ll be better next time.
