Timothy Keller Podcast
A World of Idols10/22/14
The gospel should change not just our inner being but also the way we relate to the outside world. Paul engaged with society every day. He was distressed, indignant and compassionate about the Athenians' beliefs, but he kept his eyes on the cross to...
A Woman, a Slave and a Gentile
The gospel of Jesus Christ transcends cultural and socioeconomic differences. Here we have three examples of conversions in Philippi: of the religious, the oppressed, and the secular. The gospel is presented through rational discourse, a power...
A Spirit Hath Not Flesh and Bones
The Easter story tells us of a new beginning after disaster - that after death there is life. If you spiritualize the resurrection of Jesus, you will have comfort but not the truth. The message of Easter is that right now, Jesus has flesh and bones....
A Promise of Hope
Adam and Eve sinned even before they ate the forbidden fruit. As soon as they asked themselves why they should obey God, they had sinned in their hearts. Sin is when we remove God as the ultimate authority and enthrone ourselves in God’s place. By...
A Christian's Happiness
Romans 8:28 is one of the most famous verses in the Bible. People love the thought that God works out all things for good for those who love Him. Yet, Romans 8:28 is intimately connected with Romans 8:29-30 where God promises to bodily resurrect those...
1 Corinthians 6-7
The Biblical view of sex is unique. It rejects the view, held by some conservative cultures, that sex is dirty. Instead, the Bible views sex so highly that it cannot be shared casually with anyone. Sex is meant to bind two people together. It renews...
Love and Lust
The Bible presents a more attractive and comprehensive view of sexuality than is generally understood. The headings explored in this sermon include the integrity of sex, the challenge of lust and the future of love.
Everyone with a Gift
In Romans 12, Paul looks at the Gospel and then exhorts us as to how we should live in the light of what Christ has done. He urges us to give up control over our lives and become “living sacrifices” for God. Unfortunately, the problem with a living...
Questions of Suffering
No book in all of literature addresses the questions of suffering and evil with the spiritual wisdom of the book of Job. In this sermon, Timothy Keller demonstrates how the Christian approach to suffering differs from both cynical and moralistic...
Modern people are uncomfortable with the existence of evil, let alone the existence of the Devil. Yet, the Bible teaches that we cannot fully understand the world we live in unless we realize that there are supernatural agents of evil. But it is not...
Justified by Faith
Justification is not merely an abstract theological concept. Rather, it is the sense of approval and belonging that every person desires. Justification is not only that we have our sins forgiven, but that in God’s eyes we are given Jesus’ perfect...
The Ascension of Jesus Christ “takes what Jesus was and did on Earth, and releases it into the universe and into (our) lives with all of its healing power.” In this sermon, Timothy Keller shows us the power, the nature and the meaning of the...
In the conclusion to the sermon on the mount, Jesus challenges everyone. He challenges those who don’t attend church by telling them that not all roads lead to God. He challenges those inside the church by telling them that not everyone who calls him...
Our Work and Our Character
What is the connection between faith and work? The Bible affirms the goodness of creation and therefore the goodness of work. In this sermon, we see how even 1st century slaves found dignity in their work through the Gospel. Yet, the Gospel provides...
God with Us
What does it mean to say God is with us? The meaning of Christmas is that the Creator of the universe has become a human being. It means that the terrifying God who appeared in the Old Testament as a whirlwind and a fire has become a vulnerable baby...
A Reason for Living
To find absolute freedom in life, we must admit that life on its own accord is meaningless. True meaning in life is only found through Jesus Christ, the designer of life.
The New Heaven and New Earth
The historical event of the resurrection of Jesus Christ means everything, yet it is only the first installment on something to come, and this is it—new heavens, new earth, City of God.
A Tale of Two Cities
What did the fall do to humanity? By tracing the descendants of Cain and by studying the city they created, we see the violence and oppression that resulted from turning away from God—including the Bible’s first instance of polygamy. However, we also...
The Wounded Spirit
Happiness is not determined by external circumstances, but by the way we view, process and address them. Contrary to simple, reductionist views of psychology, the Book of Proverbs presents the inner-life in its complex, multidimensional aspects,...
Seeing Him as He is
It is possible to know God in more than an intellectual way. By faith, we can experience his presence in a way that is astonishing, healing and satisfying.
