B17: The Fifth Sunday in Lent, Year B (2018)

Jim Somerville

Dr. Jim Somerville, Pastor of Richmond’s First Baptist Church and Co-Founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday, preaches a sermon from John 12:20-33 called, “The Death of a Seed.” What happens when a seed falls to the ground? Somerville enlists a member of his church who has a Ph.D. in Botany to explain seed germination. You won’t believe how much it illuminates the Gospel lesson.
