    We Had to Celebrate

    We Had to Celebrate

    The twentieth century philosopher Martin Heidegger believed all human beings were characterized by unheimlichkeit, which means homesickness. It means to be alienated, to feel that we’re not really home in this world, to feel that we are in exile, that we’re in a world that’s profoundly at variance with our deepest desires. Why would that be? What are we going to do about that? Those profound questions are all addressed and actually answered by this wonderful parable in Luke 15. 
    We’re going to see how Jesus so brilliantly ties this story in with one of the main themes of the entire Bible, which is exile and homecoming. Let’s take a look at how it does that under three headings: the human condition, the divine solution for it, and the new Communion that is the result.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 2, 2008. Series "The Fellowship of Grace". Scripture: Luke 15:17-32, Isaiah 25, Matthew 19.

    And Kissed Him

    And Kissed Him

    The one thing everybody knows when you read the parable of the prodigal son is it’s about forgiveness. The parable is a beautiful picture of a father that forgives his son and welcomes him home. 
    Let’s take a look first at what it teaches us about forgiveness and then ask the question … What kind of community would we be if we took the teaching about forgiveness seriously? Consider these four headings: forgiveness is assertive, it’s sacrificial, it’s powered from inside, and it leads to a resurrection.

    To Be Called Your Son

    To Be Called Your Son

    This great parable of the prodigal son teaches us many insights as to how the grace of God affects our relationships with each other, how it creates a unique community, a unique human society. Today we’re focusing on the theme of sonship. What did sonship mean in ancient culture? What does sonship mean in the Bible? We have to understand this if we’re going to grasp not only the narrative in the text but some of the greatest information we can get about what God has given to us through Jesus. Let’s take a look at these four things: the character of sonship, the practice of sonship, the community that results from sonship, and the accomplishment of sonship.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 19, 2008. Series "The Fellowship of Grace". Scripture: Luke 15:21-24, Galatians 3-4, Revelation 21.

    He Came to Himself

    He Came to Himself

    We’re looking at the parables of Luke 15. Of course, the biggest, longest, and most famous of them is the parable of the prodigal son. We see how the grace of God not only changes my individual life or your individual life, but how the grace of God creates a new kind of community, a new kind of human society, and how it creates new kinds of relationships.
    This parable is essentially an image about the meltdown of a community and the restoration of it. The key theme we’re going to look at in this text is the theme of repentance — this is crucial for the restoration of community. Even though the word is not in this text, what we have when the younger son decides to go back to his father is an example of repentance. Let’s notice three things: the importance of repentance, the anatomy of it (what it’s actually made of), the key to doing it, and the kind of community that results from it.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 12, 2008. Series "The Fellowship of Grace". Scripture: Luke 15:11-20; Psalm 51; James 5:16.

    Give Me Mine

    Give Me Mine

    In Luke 15, we’re learning how the gospel creates a special kind of community, and how it creates a new kind of community. We’re looking at the last of the three parables: the parable of the lost son. It’s the most famous. And it’s the longest.
    I’d like you to think about this story in a slightly different way than you probably want to do. I’d like you to consider the story is giving us a picture of an assault on community because of idolatry. And this is only overcome by agony. This is our first avenue into understanding this very rich and important text.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 5, 2008. Series "The Fellowship of Grace". Scripture: Luke 15:11-14.

    He Welcomes Sinners

    He Welcomes Sinners

    We’re looking at the parables Jesus tells in Luke 15: the parable of the lost sheep, the parable of the lost coin, and the parable of the lost son. 
    These are famous parables and they all show us how God’s grace can change someone’s life. The not only show us how God’s grace changes us individually but forms us into a unique kind of human community. With the grace of God, the gospel creates a completely unique and distinct kind of community — a community the world has never seen.
    Let’s take a look at the sheep, the search itself, and the shepherd and see what each one of those teaches us about how God’s grace creates community.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 28, 2008. Series "The Fellowship of Grace". Scripture: Luke 15:1-10; Ephesians 2.
