Psalm 125


Patricia Kathleen Tull, A. B. Rhodes Professor of Old Testament

Sept. 8, 2006

Psalm 125 proclaims that those who trust in God are are "like Mount Zion, which can never be moved, but abides forever." Ironically, Mount Zion has historically been located in three separate places in the course of Jerusalem's history. This sermon explores the ways that even this fact helps us better understand the nature of trust in God, which is always on the move, yet is rooted in the bedrock of divine faithfulness.
