The Upside Down World of Jesus

The best known teaching of Jesus is his 'Sermon on the Mount' found in the Gospel of Matthew (chapters 5-7). The Evangelist presents Jesus as an eastern teacher who ascends a mountain, sits down, and instructs his disciples and onlookers. In this sermon Jesus lays out the core values of what God's kingdom on earth is to look like. The frontispiece to the Sermon is the well-known prologue - the Beatitudes - which establish the essence of Christ's teaching (the rest of the Sermon is an elaboration of these very tenets!)

This series of sermons will drill down into these pivotal declarations of Christ to help guide us in our pilgrimage as followers of our Master Teacher.
