Resurrection of Christ

Resurrection of Christ

Date: [1900..1960]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart illustrates a sermon in four points. The main thrusts of each are: Jesus was "really dead", the tomb was empty, was the resurrection a "vision or hallucination?" and the many witnesses of the life and ministry of Jesus. The final point transitions into an appeal based on the evidence presented. Affirming from the four points that Jesus' "right to authority' is unquestionable, the preacher finally "declares our faith" urging hearers to "...obey him...live for Him and be Ready."

The Right to the Tree of Life

The Right to the Tree of Life

Date: [1970..1990]
Creator: Burtch, Kenneth & Burtch, Kenneth
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. The narrative flow of this sermon chart proceeds from the tree of life in the Biblical Garden of Eden (left) to the tree of life in heaven at the end of time (right). The tree has been "transplant[ed]." In the mean time, there is a play off of truth and falsehood, again drawing from the account of Eve's believing a lie in the Garden of Eden and applied to modern times by way of citation from 2 Thessalonians. The alternative to persisting in lies is to "purify [one's] soul by obeying the truth." Just as one can hear, believe and obey a lie (and be "lost in sin"), so can one hear, believe and obey the truth (and be saved from sin). Such constitutes the sermon's central exhortation.

The Royal Priesthood

The Royal Priesthood

Date: [1970..1990]
Creator: Burtch, Kenneth & Burtch, Kenneth
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart contrasts the Levitical priesthood (figure on the left) with "every Christian" on the right, citing ten Biblical passages. The major point of the sermon is to demonstrate that every Christian is a priest before God and that the elements of the Levitical priesthood (cited specifically is "animal sacrifice") are no longer in effect for "every Christian."

Salvation by Blood

Salvation by Blood

Date: [1940..1970]
Creator: Villines, Frank (1899-1979)
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart accompanied a sermon on the Blood of Christ as the means of our salvation under the Gospel. Scripture references and comments compare and contrast the blood sacrifices of the Mosaic Law to the Blood of Christ spilled on the Cross. It is apparent that the sermon delivered centered around a connection between Zechariah 14:8 and Hebrews 9:15.

Salvation of Noah-Type

Salvation of Noah-Type

Date: [1900..1960]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart employs typology, an interpretive strategy by which a single concept (in this case salvation) is explained by way of noting similarities between two persons (in this case Noah and the hearers of the sermon). Assuming unity and consistency of the Biblical message, typological interpretation one example serves as a pattern by which or lens through which another is interpreted. For this preacher, the key Biblical text is 1 Peter 3:19-20. It appears considerable time is spent in developing the plan of salvation, particularly baptism.
