SERMON TOPIC: CH 12 - The parables - Part 1-2

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 14 February 2020

Topic Groups: PARABLES, KINGDOM OF GOD, COLLEGE

Sermon synopsis: What was the purpose of Jesus’ parables:
1) To teach heavenly truths using earthly stories people could relate to. They understood stories about farming, fishing, commerce, kings and servants.
2) To provoke the imagination and to see God’s truth from a new perspective.
3) To hide these truths from his enemies who were listening.

SERMON TOPIC: The prodigal son

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 16 June 2019

Topic Groups: PRODIGAL SON, PARABLES, FATHERS DAY

Sermon synopsis: The context leading up to the parable is yet another argument with the Pharisees and teachers of the law. On this occasion their complaint is that Jesus has no sense of propriety about what kind of people a good prophet should associate with. In particular, he has an affinity for tax collectors and other such “sinners”.

In response to this accusation (that he welcomes sinners and eats with them) Jesus tells three parables:
1) The parable of the lost sheep
2) The parable of the lost coin
3) The parable of the lost son (aka the parable of the prodigal son)

All of these parables are stories about recovering something precious that is lost and then subsequently found. Jesus is thus implying that he associates with sinners because they are precious - but lost - and he wishes to recover and restore them.

SERMON TOPIC: The evil eye and good eye

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 15 April 2018

Topic Groups: FINANCES, PARABLES, TITHING

Sermon synopsis: Matt 6:22-23 The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Q: What does this passage mean?
A: There is disagreement about the meaning of this saying of Jesus. Some options as to what Jesus meant are:

1) Developing good or wrong images in your mind.
2) Being careful what you watch - Jesus is referring to the images we take in visually.
3) Getting our priorities right with regards to money and material possessions.

Speaker: Lindsey Parker

Language: ENGLISH

Sermon synopsis: Luke 14:15 When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.”
16 Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. 17 At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’
18 “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’
19 “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’
20 “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’
21 “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’
22 “‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’
23 “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full. 24 I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’”

SERMON TOPIC: The kingdom of heaven - The parable of the talents

Speaker: Leston Blackburn

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 28 February 1996

Topic Groups: PARABLES

Sermon synopsis: Matt 25:14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. 15 To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16 The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. 17 So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. 18 But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.
19 After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. 20 The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’
21 His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
22 The man with the two talents also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.’
23 His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
24 Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’
26 His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
28 Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.

SERMON TOPIC: 4 things lost, 3 things found

Speaker: Graham Sahling

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 9 July 1995

Topic Groups: SALVATION, PARABLES

Sermon synopsis: In Luke 15 Jesus tells us about a lost sheep, a lost coin and a lost son.

1 out of 100 sheep is a 1% loss.
1 out of 10 coins is a 10% loss.
1 out of 2 sons is a 50% loss.

The sheep, the coin and the son were lost but were subsequently found - which resulted in rejoicing.

In the following chapter Jesus tells us about the rich man and Lazarus. The rich man experienced a 100% loss but unlike the sheep, the coin and the son, he was never found - he was lost forever!
