"Surprising" - Highway Mountain View

Speaker: John Riemenschnitter

Series: At The Table

Detail:

In this Sermon John continues our 'At The Table' series by discussing the story of Jesus at the home of Simon the Pharisee. In it, Jesus elevates and invites a woman to the gathering in a dynamic and intimate way by forgiving her sins. And in so doing, Jesus subverts the power dynamic: Jesus — called “teacher” — invites Simon — a well-regarded Pharisee — to allow the woman to be Simon’s teacher, if he is willing. So the reader is left to answer Jesus’ challenge: can we learn from this woman about the powerful love that comes from forgiveness?
