Sermon: Matthew 2:13-23

I have a question for you: 

What can an x-ray of Teddy Roosevelt’s lungs, a legal dispute with the Beach Boys, and jokes teach us about the Bible? 

Sounds like the setup for a bad joke, doesn’t it?

But it’s not. It’s the setup for (what I hope) is a good sermon.  

Matthew chapter 2 is all about revelation: How God reveals Himself to us. 

And all three of those things from the question above:

  • X-rays
  • Music
  • Jokes

teach us something very important about how to understand the Bible. 

Listen to hear how:

  1. The Bible is like music. Do you hear it? 
  2. The Old Testament is like a photo/x-ray. Do you see it?  
  3. The Bible is like a joke. Do you get it?
