The 2,000 Year-Old Preacher

Cycle B Sermons for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany Based on the Gospel Texts
  • By David Leininger
Product Description

"I am old and ready to die. To be truthful, I have been ready to die for years, but right now, I feel ready as I have never been before."

This quote was taken from one of David Leininger's sermons titled "Simeon: A Monologue," in which he takes at one of the most well-known stories in the Bible, Jesus' Visit to the Temple, and looks at it from a new perspective. Throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher, he invites his audience to do the same, observing this holiday season from a new angle.

Consider the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her status as the favored one of God. In his sermon, "Mary's Complaint," Leininger references how the favored mother of Jesus does not complain during her complications as she carries the Son of God, but continues to praise His name and remain grateful for the privilege that she had been given.

Leininger uses a variety of topics to ask his congregation to view their lives from a new perspective, using sermons such as:

  • Advent 3: Hark the Herald...What? (John 1:6-8, 19-28)
  • Nativity of Our Lord: God Bless Santa (Luke 2:1-20)
  • Epiphany 5: Heroines of the Faith (Mark 1:29-39)

So take a step back from viewing the forest and look at the trees, have a seat at the feet of God, and experience new worlds that Leininger paints with his words of wisdom throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher.
