A Bloody Shame

A sermon by Hershael York on a difficult text, Exodus 4:24-26, in which God tries to kill Moses and Zipporah, Moses' wife, responds by circumcising one of their sons and throwing the foreskin at Moses' feet. Is there gospel content in such a strange passage? How does a contemporary preacher handle such a challenging text? The sermon attempts to serve not only as faithful exposition but also as a model of how to handle obscure and difficult passages. The sermon starts at the 23:00 mark.
