Baptists Preaching is a column from the Baptist Standard. It is not an effort to advance any one theology or style but to present what a collection of Baptists considers a word from God. Likewise, Baptists Preaching offers a repository of Baptist preaching for future study and research.

Joel Weaver: Breaking Alabaster Jars (Mark 14:3-9)
Joel Weaver teaches Introductory Greek, Biblical Interpretation and Introduction to Christian Scriptures at Baylor’s Truett Seminary. Weaver challenges his listeners with a powerful personal story about his father, a pastor in Georgia who grew up as part of the “working poor,” who was raised out of poverty because of people willing to make great sacrifices.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Mary Alice Birdwhistell, pastor of Calvary Baptist, was away on a mission trip, as were numerous others among the congregation. My family and I were in attendance, and I thought, “More people should hear this.” As a result, the idea of Baptists Preaching was conceived.
