What is in a Name?


Biblical Text: John 17:1-11
Full Sermon Draft

Jesus summarizes his work in this text as manifesting the Name to the world. I couldn’t think about names without thinking about Juliet’s question “what is in a name”? That turns into a meditation on our human folly and God’s wisdom which are made manifest in our reactions to a name.

Note: the recording is an after the fact recording. We have an imp in our system. I’m starting to believe that it isn’t just an electronic imp, because the sermons that I tend to think are “portfolio material” are the ones that I re-record.
