  • A Church Divided: Sermon from General Conference
    A Church Divided: Sermon from General Conference

    In this sermon, Rev. Adam Hamilton considers the first major division in Christianity, recorded in Acts 15, over whether Gentile believers needed to be circumcised and obey the Law of Moses. He also shares about The United Methodist Church’s divide and our bishops’ proposal for the church going forward regarding same-sex marriage -- which, like the apostles’ solution in Acts 15, is a compromise that makes room for conservatives and progressives in the church. Adam also shares personal reflections on the proposal, both in light of scripture and the prevalence of conflict and division in the early church -- noting that nearly every book of the New Testament addresses conflict, and they all offer the same answer.

    Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, is located six miles south of the Old City of Jerusalem, within the West Bank. King David was born and raised in Bethlehem. According to the Torah, Rachel, the favorite wife of Jacob, was buried on the outskirts.

    This resource includes footage from the Church of the Nativity. Attested to as the site of Jesus' birth from the early second century, it was originally constructed in 327 and rebuilt after a fire in 565. It is considered the oldest continuously used church building in the world.

    The Shepherd's Field is one of two rival locations for the exact site where the angel appeared to the shepherds on the night of Jesus' birth. One site is run by the Greek Orthodox, the other by Franciscans.

    Finally, Herod the Great built a fortress and palace - called the Herodion - between 23 and 15 BCE on a high hill south of Jerusalem and east of Bethlehem. It is the only structure Herod built to which he gave his own name, and his tomb was discovered there in 2007.
