Luke 16:1-13 is a relatively rare one to be preached on.

I don't have a RCL handy, but something tells me the little story in Exodus where Moses hides behind a rock and catches a glimpse of the Almighty's backside has probably been left out of the cycle of OT lessons.;-) That might be an interesting concept to weave into a sermon!



It was preached in my church.

"Truth did not come into the world naked, but it came in types and images. The world will not receive truth in any other way."  Gospel of Philip, Logion 72

"Christ will regenerate all things; through Him all things will be purged, and return into eternal life. And when the Son shall deliver up the kingdom to the Father, all things will be God; that is, all things will still exist, but God will exist in them, and they will be full of Him." Fabius Manus Victorinus, c. 350 AD

i've always been fond of the following passage, and have never heard anyone preach on it---and neither have i even HEARD of anyone to ever even mention it:

John 11:9-11 (American Standard Version)

9 Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because the light is not in him."

To me, vs. 10 seems to hint that if a man DOES have the light in him, he CAN walk at night and not stumble...and certain mystics have written that on certain rare occasions, when the "beatific vision" is granted, all that is glows with a heavenly light, even at night.

Warmest regards-

I've definitely heard Hebrews 11 preached on; many times I think.


I don't know if it makes it into sermons or not, but the relationship between Lot and his daughters probably constitutes my favorite text of terror.

Ecclisiastes is summarily avoided for its "Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die" theology.


The other that is ignored as it calls to Christians to be loving and gentle exemplars of the faith is the Fruits of the Spirit.

Wow! I have been to a Pentecostal Church where that was the sermon three weeks running!
