Jesus the Lens – Sermon for the Last Sunday after Epiphany, RCL Year A – March 2, 2014

Fr. Funston’s sermon for the Last Sunday after Epiphany, March 2, is now available online:

We should think of Jesus as the lens of a microscope, or a telescope, or just as a magnifying glass. We should read Paul through the lens of Jesus, not vice versa. We should read Revelation through the lens of Jesus, not vice versa. We should read the prophets, the Psalms, Moses, the whole of the Old Testament through the lens of Jesus. When a biblical writer has something to say about a particular matter, we should hear what that writer has to say, but we should then critically question that writer’s words by asking, “Did Jesus say anything about that?” We should listen to Jesus.
