Christ the Superior Son
Sunday, December 3, 2023
Dr. Kelly B. Burton
Every Sunday in December I will feature the Son of God. Today’s sermon underscores the superiority of the Son. The first readers were Jewish Christians about to call it quits. They were tempted to turn back to their old ways. If they turn back now, they may never return to the church.
