Ep 78: Simon the Zealot
In this episode, I give you the recording of a sermon I preached at my church on July 9, 2023. This sermon was a part of a series on the disciples of Jesus. I choose to focus on Simon the Zealot, a disciple for which there is a small amount of historical material in the New Testament but whose title ‘zealot’ reveals several significant insights into the ministry of Jesus, the Kingdom of God, and the mission of the church. While this episode is, of course, not explicitly political, listeners of this show should find a lot of important parallels between the content of my sermon and the subjects I discuss on this show. I hope you enjoy it!
