For the record, I contacted the author and got the answer.

comment Why is there a [sic] in this passage?
I don't think that could be it, because the word occurred in an orally delivered sermon, not in a piece of writing.

comment Why is there a [sic] in this passage?
I wondered if the authors might be making an editorial comment, but they are all professional scholars, and the book is a high school history text, so it seemed unlikely.

comment Why is there a [sic] in this passage?
The excerpt is from a current textbook, where six highly credentialed academics decided a [sic] was needed, indicating some kind of ENGLISH LANGUAGE mistake in the original passage. I did a bit of googling and asking around, but couldn't determine the error. I thought this site could help, and even find the question interesting. It's apparent that I don't understand the scope of this site, because I certainly don't understand this closing.
