B45: The Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2018)

Andrew Connors

Andrew Connors, Pastor of Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church in Baltimore, Maryland, preaches a sermon from Mark 9:38-50. Why are we so fascinated with the concept of hell? This passage feeds that interest. “It is better for you to enter life maimed/lame/with one eye than to have two hands/two feet/two eyes and go to hell, to the unquenchable fire.” Connors explains that the word for hell in this passage has a different meaning. Listen as he explains a new take on a familiar passage.
