Treasures

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. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on June 3, 2012. Series "Savior and Teacher - A Study of Matthew". Scripture: Matthew 6:19-24.

The Witness of the Kingdom

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 Resurrection

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. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 8, 2012. Series "Savior and Teacher - A Study of Matthew". Scripture: Matthew 28:1-20.

Into Jerusalem

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. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 18, 2012. Series "Savior and Teacher - A Study of Matthew". Scripture: Matthew 21:1-14.

Our Work and Our Character

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. This sermon was preached by Rev.

A New Church for the City

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. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 7, 2010. Series "The Gospel and the World". Scripture: Acts 16:13-33.

A Vision for Culture-Making

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. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 10, 2010. Series "The Gospel and the World". Scripture: Genesis 1:26-28; 2:2-17.

A Counter-Culture of Grace

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. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 10, 2010. Series "The Gospel in Community: The Book of James". Scripture: James 4:1-12.

A Society of Suffering

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.

How the Gospel Changes Lives: Part 1

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.

The Gospel in a Pluralist Society

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.
