The seven sermons of Revelation 2 and 3 are far more than just a prologue to the apocalyptic vision of the remainder of the book. Despite their specific ancient recipients and subtle allusions, each of these sermons carries a message for churches today. In his new book, The Sermons to the Seven Churches of Revelation: A Commentary and Guide, Jeff Weima, Professor of New Testament at Calvin Seminary, explores the meaning of these seven sermons and the path to preaching each text to Christians today. This sermon, "Ephesus: The Church of Loveless Orthodoxy," was preached at Midland Evangelical Free Church in 2014.
