Different contexts make for different sermons.

Friends: No preacher preaches the same sermon twice. Different contexts make for different sermons. A preacher keeps working with a biblical text and the text works with the preacher so the second time around, the sermon will be different.  I preached this sermon, in a studio, a couple of months ago for Jim Somerville’s A Sermon Every Sunday. You can read the manuscript here.

B32: The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2021)

Then, I preached a sermon on the same text on July 4 at First Baptist Asheville.  I thought some of you might like to see how that sermon kept changing and how a different context helped to produce a somewhat different sermon. 

How did the two sermons differ, and if they did, how do you think the context informed those differences?
