Sermon Outline

The concept of “familiarity breeds contempt”
T. In healing the official’s son, Christ addresses the problem of contemptuous familiarity in Galilee.
1. Christ faces the problem;
Opening verses puzzling
Looking at Galilee, remembering Nazareth
Hence the problem
Modern relevance
Our Saviour faces it!
2. Christ deals with the problem;
Royal official comes
The problem with this man
Problem continues
Response of Christ
3. Christ solves the problem.
Man comes to faith
Why John reports this story
Dealing with contempt today in ourselves
Dealing with contempt today in others

Sermon Outline

The Bible
T. We confess the miracle of scripture. We thereby confess:
1. Its miraculous composition;
Adam and Eve in Paradise
God did not tell everything all at once
Indeed word of God!
Finally: sent Saviour himself
Bring to Scripture as we have it
OT Canon
NT Canon
Bible today
2. Its miraculous power
If only people would see this
Scripture discredited
Makes sense
Why bother pointing to it?
Power of the Word
