The Olivet discouse (Matthew 24-25) an Index of the sermon series 'Until the End of the World.
Over the past few month's I been preaching through a series of sermons on the Olivet discourse in Matthew's gospel.
The series was called 'Until the End of the World' part of the timing for the series was Advent: watching and waiting for the coming of the king, Part of it was following on from a longer series on Jesus Sermon on the Mount (Matthew chapter 5-7). The third reason was that it seemed to fit with the whole 'end of the world' Mayan calendar December 21st 2012 thing. Just maybe there were people who were talkn' about the end of the world and they may be interested in what Jesus had to say. But also because it is important to be challenged about what it means to follow Jesus in the present with a future hope.
If you are looking for material on the Olivet discourse and what Jesus has to say about the end of the age. Then here is my humble contribution.
Lots of Signs But no Definite Times (Matthew 24:1-44)
The parable of the faithful and unfaithful servant (Matthew 24:45-51)
The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins (Matthew 25:1-12)
The Parable of the Bags of Gold (aka The Talents) (Matthew 25:13-30)
The Parable of the Sheep and the Goats (Matthew 25:31-46)
