NEW LENTEN SERMON SERIES NOW AVAILABLE

The familiar words of the Patriarch Joseph, “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good” (Genesis 50:20 ESV) capture something of the uniqueness of Luke’s account of Jesus’s suffering, death, and resurrection.

Enemies, faithless disciples, hapless crowds, pragmatic powerbrokers, and Satan himself are all arrayed against the perfectly innocent Son of God. Through them, one evil purpose comes to pass: Jesus’s destruction. God the Father, however, puts their plan to use and then overturns it in the victory that no one expected.

Written by Dr. Jeffrey Gibbs, this sermon series, based on Luke 22:1-24:12, is geared for Lenten midweek services, but could alternatively be used for Sunday worship during Lent. The series includes nine full sermons for Ash Wednesday, the weeks of Lent, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday.

“You Meant It for Evil, But God Meant It for Good: Sermons based on Luke 22:1-24:12.” is available for download at Concordia Seminary’s online store.

 

You Meant It For Evil, But God Meant It For Good

Paul Raabe reflects on the label “Lutheran” and how, in some contexts, it does not communicate to most Americans. We need to be able to explain ourselves to outsiders in ways intelligible to them. Maybe a church sign should say: “A Gospel-Baptism-Lord’s Supper-Bible-Creedal-Liturgical Church - Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.” These descriptions are the markers of our church body.

I’m writing this post for two reasons. First and generally, it is simply not helpful when Christians pass along claims about what something in the Bible “really means” when those claims are based on faulty or inaccurate information. Truth matters, and good information is important. Christians...
