Topical Search: Sermon/Theology Resource for Preachers, Teachers and Students

Here's how this page works: you have access to over 700 sermons (and still growing). The exact text of the sermons is not here, but rather a content summary and outline, along with scripture citations, Greek or Hebrew definitions of key words in the text, cross references for the Common Lectionary, date and title. You should be able to use this to inform or create your own sermons or essays on these topics. In addition, you can listen to the sermon as it was actually preached. They typically run 20-25 minutes, though they will occasionally go longer.

You can search all of these sermons by keywords, which include anything found in the summaries, outlines, lectionaries and citations. These can then be ordered (that is, sorted) by Recently Added First, Newest Sermons First, Oldest Sermons First, Sermon Title, Sermon Number, or Main Topics.

Up to 30 sermon results can be displayed at once. Click on the title to see the full summary, outline, keywords, lectionary reference, root words, key words and scripture citations.
