Transcript of CMIN 301 (Sp '15) T19 - Preparing Redemptive Sermons

Preparing Redemptive Sermons
- Read 2 Tim 3:16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
- Purpose of Scripture:
1 Cor 2:2
For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
Redemptive Sermons
- seek to
where every text
stands in
relation to Christ
(not where
Christ is mentioned in the text)
How can we find a redemptive focus in a text?
# 1 - Look for
direct reference

to Christ or an
his messianic work
# 2 - Look for
OT types
# 3 - Look into the
(only if #1 and #2 have
no redemptive focus)
of the work of Christ
for the work of Christ
of the work of Christ
of the work of Christ
Let us find some sample passages
Messianic psalms; passages from the prophets
e.g., Mosaic law
God's nature
->provides redemption
Scripture that includes instruction
Nonredemptive Messages
- messages that are
not Christ-centered

become human-centered
- "be like" or "be good" messages can be misleading
If we neglect the means of grace (work of Christ), then we deny the possibility of obedience.
Lesson adapted from Bryan Chapell,

(e.g., Heb 4:14)
