    The Parable of the Pearl: On Priorities

    The Parable of the Pearl: On Priorities

    In these short parables, we see sacrifices made in the context of such tremendous riches that the sacrifice is made with incredible joy. In other words, the characters sacrificed in the joy and knowledge of what was on the way.

    This story shows us several principles of the kingdom of God: 1) Give up your small ambitions; 2) Christianity is a change of dimension and of essence; 3) To make that change, Christianity requires you to sell everything; 4) What Jesus gives in response to unconditional surrender is unimaginable splendor. 

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 28, 1994. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1994). Scripture: Matthew 13:44-46.

    The Parable of the Farmer: On Servanthood

    The Parable of the Farmer: On Servanthood

    In this parable, we see Jesus teaching about how he wants his followers to live. The main theme of this story is that a Christian is no longer his or her own, but a Christian is a servant.

    Through this story, we'll see that a servant is somebody who has settled something intellectually and emotionally; they’ve settled that God owes them nothing. But we'll also see that a Christian is more than a servant: Christians are sons and daughters of God. 

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 21, 1994. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1994). Scripture: Luke 17:1-13.

    The Great Banquet: On Humbling

    The Great Banquet: On Humbling

    The parable of the Great Banquet shows us that God's kingdom is a feast, but it’s not the kind of feast you’d think. Instead of the feast for the rich and the proud, it’s a feast for the humble.

    How can we humble ourselves so we can enter the kingdom? First, Jesus shows that you must be humbled under the slowness of the kingdom. Secondly, under the freeness of the kingdom. Thirdly, under the commonness of the kingdom. Fourthly, under the priority of the kingdom.

    his sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 30, 1992. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1992). Scripture: Luke 14:7-24.

    The Sower: On Hearing

    The Sower: On Hearing

    In the parable of the sower, we see that Jesus did not just come to bring forgiveness of sins, but the very kingdom of God—in other words, forgiveness of sins is just the beginning. The kingdom of God is nothing less than the power of God in heaven entering the world to heal every alienation and every brokenness.

    What does it mean to enter the kingdom of God? How do we come into the power of the kingdom of God? In this parable, we learn that listening well, listening deep, and listening in understanding is the primary skill of the kingdom of God.

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 23, 1992. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1992). Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9; 18-23.

    The Two Debtors: On Devotion

    The Two Debtors: On Devotion

    Two people find themselves in the same room with Jesus: Simon, an intellectual and a religious man, and a woman, who we are told lived “a sinful life.” What happens with them? Why does one of them remain cool and detached, while the other one sees their life transformed and changed?

    In the parable of the two debtors, we see what happens when people come to Jesus with two different conditions, and how Jesus responds to each of them. 

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 16, 2008. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1992). Scripture: Luke 7:36-50.

Tim Keller’s sermons are inspiring

I find listening to Tim Keller’s sermons very enriching both spiritually and intellectually. I highly recommend his podcasts. They are truly valuable when trying to decipher biblical concepts and inspire a deeper spirituality and personal connection with God. Thank you Tim!

Scripture for Catholics too!

I’m a Catholic and I have been so impressed by Tim Keller’s understanding and lessons from in-depth study of scripture in an intellectual but most of all engaging way. Mass attendances would go up if we had more priests who could give a sermon like Tim Keller.
