Sermon of the Week is the weekly series where I highlight a sermon (from the selection of preachers on the right) that I believe best explained a passage or had the biggest impact on my week. (In 2015, I will likely just make this the "podcast of the week" and highlight sermons on a non-weekly basis.)
There were a lot of Christmas sermons on the Magi but I enjoyed Dr. York's the best. (He teaches preaching at Southern Seminary, so expectations are always high.) The sermon is titled "And on Earth, Death and Bad Will Toward Children: The Forgotten Part of the Christmas Story" (mp3) and focuses on Herod. York gives a long historical background on Herod and his paranoid cruelty which I enjoyed. His greater point is that we will suffer the same end as Herod if we discard the revelation at the King has been born just as Herod did. Enjoy.
