A03: The Third Sunday of Advent, Year A (2019)

Ryan Ahlgrim

Ryan Ahlgrim, pastor of First Mennonite Church, Richmond, Virginia, tells the following story. “One day a tourist approached an Amish man and asked him, ‘Are you a Christian?’ Instead of answering, the Amish man pointed down the road at a house and he said, ‘That is my next door neighbor. If you want to know if I’m a Christian, you need to ask him.'” In today’s text, Matthew 11:2-11, John asks Jesus if he is the Messiah and Jesus gives a similar answer. Listen as Ahlgrim explores Jesus’ response to the question, “Are you the Messiah?”
