This fall we started a series working our way through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. We gave ourselves 8 weeks but that was not going to be enough o work through everything in the sermon. Particularly, the beatitudes got short changed a bit and so I wanted to work my way through each of these statements on their own.
These are for more than just idiosyncratic sayings, they are Jesus imagination for the world. Not so much teachings but declarations of what could be.
