Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/13/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:30-38


SBC Host: If you were going to put a list together of heroes of the faith —real examples of faith — would your list include Samson, Jephthah, and Rahab?

Avg Guy: Are you kidding me?? Samson’s a womanizer. Jephthah — “The King of Rash” — needs to slow down and think before he acts. And Rahab… [whispering] she’s a harlot!!

SBC Host: Yep.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao draws to the end of our Hall of Faith Deep Dive, as we move through the book of Hebrews, and points out that most of us wouldn’t compile a list with those names… and yet, God did.

And to the degree that we are surprised… is the degree to which we still don’t understand faith.

Avg Guy: oh.

Jephthah: Hero of Feeble Faith [Judges 12:1-7]

August 9, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/09/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 12:1-7 and Hebrews 11:32

Description:  After Jephthah’s defeat of the Ammonites and the wicked sacrifice of his own daughter, his troubles are not over.  He is rebuked by the Ephraimites and ends up fighting against them and over 40,000 Ephraimites die.  Israelite killing Israelite.

With all of the sinfulness and tragedy in the life of Jephthah, the book of Judges is not the only place we see mention of his name.  Jephthah surprisingly is listed in the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11.  We explore how Jephthah might have “made the cut”.
