The Sermon on the Mount

It’s the key interpretive text of the Gospel of Matthew. It’s been the foundational Scripture for Anabaptists for the last 500 years. It’s a passage that includes some of Jesus’ most famous and enduring words: “Blessed are the peacemakers…” “Our Father…” “Turn the other cheek…” “Do unto others…”

It’s Matthew chapters 5-7, the “Sermon on the Mount”—the concentrated “Greatest Hits” of Jesus’ teachings. Within these words we get the distilled essence of what it looks like to step one foot into the incoming Kin-dom of Heaven, here, today.

Thus, this Easter, as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection as the beginning of God’s New Creation among us, we will explore the ways we can join in that life of Christ now, by deeply exploring the Sermon on the Mount.
