The sermon title is Epiphany and we begin with the visit of the Wise Men in Matthew 2. The sermon deals with the Messiah the Jews were expecting versus the one that God sent. In a manger in Bethlehem seemed like the wrong place for a king to be born. Nazareth, up north in Galilee, is seemingly the wrong place for the Messiah to come from. The Jews were looking for a Messiah that looked and sounded a lot like themselves; we must be careful not to do the same. If Jesus looks a lot like us to start with, it would be a small thing to be conformed to his image.
