Scripture text: Luke 23:6-12                   Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland                  Date: 8 May 2016

This is the second of a series of three sermons preached on the occasion of the Congregation’s Spring Communion season. In Luke’s account, the trial of Jesus has now progressed to his appearance before Herod. This sermon reflects on the reasons for Christ’s resolute silence before Herod, and in conclusion draws from them the reasons that compel us, in our turn, to speak out for him. The sermon was preached in two parts, before and after the congregation came to the Lord’s Table, and here the two portions are joined together to form a single discourse.
