Sermon from the Sunday Morning Worship Service 11/06/16 © Tenth Presbyterian Church
“A son is someone who shares the nature of his father.” “Worship the mystery.” “Once God is explicable, he is no longer God.”

EXTRACT: This word [Son] denotes having the very nature of God and the people of his own day, the Jews of his own day, understood this very clearly. In John 5:18, they complained, you see, “He was calling God his own Father, thus making himself equal with God.” They understood what was going on. And listen to Jesus’ reply. He doesn’t dissuade them. He doesn’t deny it; he doesn’t avoid the subject. In fact, he pursues the subject. He essentially says to them, “That is exactly… You are exactly right. ‘Son of God’ means God."

ABOUT TENTH: Tenth Church occupies an historic house of worship. It was originally founded in 1829 in Center City Philadelphia. Its current building at 17th and Spruce dates back to 1856. In such a setting, it is only appropriate that Tenth worships in the great traditions of its Presbyterian heritage and has maintained its excellence for profound Biblical preaching by great expository ministers, renowned for their longevity in Tenth’s impressive pulpit. While originally an affluent white congregation, today it represents every socio-economic, ethnic and educational background, including many international scholars. It is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
