B37: The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2015)

Rolf Jacobson

Rolf Jacobson, Professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, and one of the “stars” of the Sermon Brainwave podcast, preaches a sermon from John 6 and takes the trouble to provide visual aids to explain the many ways of looking at Christ’s presence in the bread and wine of communion before moving on to the sermon itself. It’s a glimpse of his ready sense of humor as well as his brilliance as a teacher. In the end, he moves on to the confident assertion that food is one of the ways God shows his love for us.
