Final Exam

Robert Howard
Adjunct Professor of Homiletics

Matthew 25:31-46
Originally preached on November 18, 2005

Jesus Christ gives us his own version of a "final exam" in the final judgment image of the sorting of the sheep and the goats. What seems to be important for Jesus are the ordinary human actions of feeding, clothing, visiting, and caring for the outsiders with whom Christ identifies. Whenever we do care for them we will find the Christ for whom we long.
