Four-Faced Advent (2019)
Advent sermon series, 2019, plus Christmas sermon.
Ezekiel sees a vision of "living creatures" (beasts) in Ezekiel chapter 1, each of which has four different faces. The face of an ox, a lion, an eagle, and a human. Historically, the Church has seen these as images of the four Gospels (see Irenaeus, for instance). This series follows a more recent designation of Ox with Matthew, Lion with Mark, Eagle with Luke, and Man with John, and notes the first recorded words of Christ in each of the four Gospels in this connection.
